Description

The importance of pH in Ponds is often under estimated! Nothing works right when the pH is out of range (correct range: 6.8 – 7.8). Beneficial Bacteria will not multiply sufficiently, many plants will not thrive and undesirable water murkiness and exponential growth of slimy and stringy stuff on rocks, waterfalls, liner and plants can result. Adjusting pH too fast can result in the Pond Fish going into shock (and even death), this product does it slowly and safely.

Manufacturer’s Notes for pH Down:

Purpose And Benefits:

pH is the measure of the acidity in pond water. A pH reading of 7.0 is neutral, a pH higher than 7.0 is alkaline, and lower than 7.0 is acidic. Acid rain, mineral leaching, soil runoff and decomposing plant and fish waste can alter the pH and cause unacceptable levels. Some sources of tap water used to fill ponds can also cause extreme pH levels. A pH below 6.8 or above 8.0 should be avoided. A pH level of 7.0 to 7.5 is ideal. pH levels of less than 6.8 can stress pond fish and suppress the activity of the biological filter. A high pH of more than 8.0 will limit the ability of many plants to absorb necessary nutrients.

Pond Care pH Down will decrease the pH in garden ponds by neutralizing excess alkalinity (carbonate hardness). This product can be used daily to adjust pH until conditions stabilize. pH Down contains no algae-promoting phosphates. It is important to accurately measure the level of pH in a pond before initiating adjustments. Use a PondCare pH Test Kit to measure your pH weekly.

pH should be either raised or lowered by no more than 0.5 units every 24 hours. Do not treat pond water more than once every 24 hours. Plants and algae cause a temporary increase in pH in the afternoon. Therefore, pH should be tested in the early morning to obtain the most accurate reading.

Directions For Use:

1. Test the pH of the pond water with a PondCare Liquid Wide Range pH Test Kit.

2. Add 1 teaspoonful (5 ml/ 5 cc) of pH Down for every 50 U.S. gallons (189 L) of pond water.

3. Wait 24 hours, then test pH. Repeat treatment as necessary.

Compatibility:

PondCare pH Down can be used in all ponds and water gardens containing fish and plants.

Directions For Use:

Carefully mix desired dose with 2 U.S. gallons of pond water in a plastic bucket and distribute evenly around the perimeter of the pond.

1. Test the pH of the pond water with a PondCare Liquid Wide Range pH Test Kit.

2. Add 2 teaspoonfuls for every 50 U.S. gallons (189 L) of pond water
