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.
- 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.
- 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.

What is the shelf life of JBL PondCheck pH ?
> JBL PondCheck pH has a shelf life of 4 years in the original sealed bottle.
The following is printed on the bottom of the packaging:
CH/B: 2649 (e.g.) = batch number
BBD: 02/15 (e.g.) = best-before date (month/year).
Please note that the best-before date does not apply for opened reagents. Exposure to atmospheric oxygen decreases the shelf life.
