Pond pH Buffer™ is designed to raise pH and buffer decorative ponds without the use of phosphates. It is ideal for use with planted ponds containing koi, goldfish, or other pond fish. It is not eutrophic and will not promote algae growth. It is particularly useful in raising the pH in liner ponds. Buffers between 7.2 and 8.2, but preferentially around 7.4–7.6.
Why It’s Different:
What distinguishes Pond pH Buffer™ from other buffers is that it does not contain phosphates. This makes it ideal for the ponds, where excess phosphate could contribute to undesirable algae growth.
Add 500 mL (2 cups) of Pond pH Buffer™ to each 1000 L (250 US gallons) of pond water each day until target pH is reached. Add near a pump intake for optimum mixing and dispersion. CHECK pH AFTER EACH DOSE! Then use as required to maintain pH. Optimum pH for most ponds is between 7.2 and 7.8. This product will raise pH, but will not exceed 8.2. To lower pH, use Pond Acid Buffer™
