FAQ

Why do I need JBL FilterStart Pond ? What bacteria are included?

> JBL FilterStartPond is needed whether you are creating a new pond or servicing the pond after the winter, when cleaning the filter media and after remedy treatment.


Highly active cleaning bacteria belonging to the group of nitrifiers and denitrificants, plus heterotropic bacteria with different degradative pathways on a mineral-based carrier granulate, together ensure an accumulation of bacteria in the filter.


The nitrifiers start quickly and effectively with the breakdown of ammonium/ammonia and nitrite. The denitrificants take slightly longer to start with the breakdown of nitrate to atmospheric nitrogen.


The heterotrophic groups advance the reduction of sediments, preventing the filter media from rapid silting and becoming clogged.
