Buffer the pH In Your Pond to Avoid Fish Deaths!
Water parameters are the most important thing to monitor in your pond. If they fluctuate, they can have disastrous effects on your fish, leading to illness and death. Water parameters are not something that can be seen, which is why they are so deadly. Water can look healthy and your fish can look happy and healthy, but beneath the surface is a cauldron of pollutants that can changes and lead to a fatal pH crash. Sorry to be all doom and gloom, but they really are that important!
How to Lower pH In Ponds Naturally
Pond Equaliser is arguably the most important product you will ever buy for your pond. Using natural ingredient found in water, it stabilises the parameters in your pond to ensure safe water for habitat. Pond Equaliser will either increase or decrease your pH and then buffer it between 7.5 & 8.5. It will also raise your KH (carbonate hardness) above 5 if required. If Pond Equaliser is added but not required, it will remain in the pond until the water parameters need stabilising.
The inclusion of calcium in our pond pH buffer enables removal of toxic heavy metals and ammonia from your pond. Heavy metals, such as copper tend to make their way into your pond via tap water. Whereas ammonia will be present in your pond due to it being the by-product of fish waste. Both can influence pH levels and be fatal to fish, so it is important to remove them from your pond or monitor levels.
Another benefit of a pond pH buffer is that you don’t have to waste money and rely on a test kit. Simply scatter over the surface of the water 3 times a year and watch pH buffer itself.
Unlike other pond ph treatments, Pond Equaliser will buffer the pH and keep it at a steady level even when the pond experiences a rise or drop in acidity or alkalinity. If you experience acid rain, this can normally be the contributing factor to a pH crash. Pond Equalisers natural ingredients will overpower this crash buffering the pH between 7.5 & 8.5 at all times.
If you’re an area that has hard water, test the KH level before using to ensure the product is needed.
We strongly recommend that you use a bacterial maintenance product in conjunction with Pond Equaliser such as Pond Klear, Sludge Klear or in winter, our Winter Pond Treatment to ensure biologically balanced water is maintained.
