KH - Alkalinity Bio-Active Booster is essential for nitrification in your pond.
When pond carbonate levels fall below the recommended level, nitrification will stop and will fail to start again. With the loss of KH (carbonate alkalinity) pH levels will vary and pH will be difficult to control as KH stabilizes pond pH.
The natural biological ammonia removal process in ponds referred to as nitrification requires the presence of KH (carbonate alkalinity) at all times.
Utilizes 7.1 mg. of KH for every 1 mg. of ammonia removed.
Continuously depletes KH so KH must be monitored and restored as necessary with MICROBE-LIFT/KH Bio-Active Booster (ML/KH).
Be sure to maintain 50-100 ppm KH in your pond at all times to assure proper nitrification.
One full flat level scoop (enclosed) will raise the KH by approximately:
80/ppm in 30 gallons (113 L)
50/ppm in 50 gallons (189 L)
25/ppm in 100 gallons (378 L)
Contains a proprietary blend of Carbonate Hardness constituents and bacterial cultures.
