Pond Equaliser instantly stabilises key water parameters in ponds and aquariums such as pH, KH, GH and ammonia. It is crucial that these parameters are balanced as they determine the biological balance in a pond. Balanced water parameters provide both fish and beneficial bacteria with perfect living conditions and reduces the risk of algae, sludge and blanket weed.
Pond Equaliser only contains ingredients that are naturally found in water and are completely harmless to fish, wildlife and humans.
How Does Pond Equaliser Work?
Pond Equaliser adds essential minerals to pond water to stabilise the key water properties such as the carbonate hardness (KH), the pH and the general hardness (GH).
Furthermore, it adds calcium to the water to neutralise any toxic heavy metals (found in tap water) and eliminate ammonia.
By improving the water quality, the biological capabilities of the pond increase, ensuring bacterial based products work at maximum efficiency.
Don’t Just Take Our Word for It…
MJA – Pond colour has definitely changed from Pea Green and getting clearer – not fully there yet but is looking good.
Jules – Used in conjunction with Envii Pond Klear worked miracles. Within 4 days could see the fish again and green weed cleared.
Amazon Customer – Did what it said on the pack tested water and fish are happy now!
What Are the Ideal Water Parameters for Fish?
Oxygen levels in your pond should be a minimum of 5.0 mg/L and a maximum of 18mg/L.
Ph levels should be kept as neutral as possible at around 7. But they can fluctuate down to 6.8 and up to 8.2 whilst still be classed as healthy.
KH levels, or carbonate hardness levels, should be kept at around 105ppm. But can fluctuate by 15ppm either way and still be classed as healthy.
Ammonia levels should be at zero as they can be very harmful to fish. Nitrite levels should be as close to zero as possible and Nitrate levels can be up to 50ppm.
Why Is It Important to Monitor The pH Of Pond Water?
It is essential to monitor pH levels closely as they can have fatal effects on your fish if you don’t. Your pH level should sit around 7, which is neutral on the pH scale. With every digit above this, your fish come closer to being exposed to dangerous levels of high acidity and alkalinity. High acidity and alkalinity can increase the toxicity of any ammonia in your pond. Ammonia can cause physical burns to your fish’s gills and if it becomes too high will cause ammonia poisoning.
How to Lower Pond pH?
Lowering your ponds pH levels is very easy. We will assume you have checked your water with a test kit and found that pH levels are too high.
The next step is simple. Follow the instructions for Pond Equaliser and your water parameters (pH, KH, GH, Ammonia & Heavy Metals) will be stable within a few hours.
Why Is My Pond pH So High?
The first thing to do if you get a high pH reading is to take another. Make sure you take one reading in the morning and one later in the day, ideally with similar weather conditions. The reason for this is that algae is more active in the late morning and will be sucking up carbon dioxide which will in turn cause your pH to read high. The algae are less active first thing in the morning and later at night. Therefore, it is best to take two readings.
If pH levels are still high, treat your pond with Pond Equaliser and then take two readings 24 hours later.
