Healthy pond environment:

  • The right water values in the garden pond are dependent on the fish stock and the plants present.
  • Even if the water looks clear it can be contaminated.
  • With poor values diseases or algae can appear in the pond.
  • To maintain a healthy pond environment it is important to check and adapt the water values regularly.

Why test?

  • PH VALUE - The pond dwellers’ well-being and aquatic plant growth depend upon a suitable pH level being kept as constant as possible.
  • The pH level can also affect many substances dissolved in the water.
  • Fluctuations in the pH level definitely need to be avoided.

KH value:

  • Depending on the origin and consistency of the subsoil, the water may contain varying quantities of hardeners.
  • Due to the effects of CO2, a large proportion of these minerals is in the form of hydrogen carbonates.
  • By definition, the proportion of calcium and magnesium salts in the form of carbonate is described as carbonate hardness.
  • As a rule, the carbonate hardness is below the general hardness value.
  • In certain exceptional cases the carbonate hardness can be higher than the general hardness.
