Pond Prime® is a complete conditioner that removes chlorine, chloramine, and detoxifies ammonia and nitrite. It also provides essential ions and stimulates natural slime coat. Pond Prime® also enhances nitrate removal. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. It should be the first choice conditioner when setting up a new pond, adding, or changing water. No other product is required to make water safe, even in high chloramine situations. Unlike competing products, Pond Prime® does not cause a pH drop or overactivate skimmers. A 500 mL bottle treats over 10,000 US gallons, much more than competing products.
Sizes: 500 mL
Why It’s Different:
Nearly all companies manufacture a product that removes chlorine. None of those, however, can compare in quality, concentration, or effectiveness to Pond Prime®. Pond Prime is the most concentrated dechlorinator on the market. A single 500 mL bottle treats over 10,000 US gallons. Pond Prime® will remove both chlorine and chloramines from municipal water supplies. Pond Prime® also contains a binder which renders ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate non-toxic. Additionally, Pond Prime® promotes the natural production and restoration of the slime coat rather than relying on artificial or non-native slime compounds.
Use 1/8 cup (2 tablespoons) for each 600-700 gallons for removing chlorine or chloramine. To detoxify high concentrations of ammonia or nitrite, use 1/4 to 1/2 cup for each 600 gallons. Sulfur odor is normal. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite in an emergency, up to 5 times normal dose may be used. If temperature is > 30 °C (86 °F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.
