Releases pH buffering solution to keep water in balance

Product Highlights

Features & Benefits

  • Hydra pH Up rapidly releases a pH buffering solution into the pond water to help keep it in balance for GH General Hardness and KH Carbonate Hardness.
  • Ideal for emergency treatment in case of pH crash which can cause death of fish.
  • Pond alkalinity is naturally decreased over time through bacterial action which produces acidic compounds that combine with and reduce the alkalinity components.
  • Rain in today's global warming climatic conditions contains large amounts of CO² which is acidic.
  • Ponds with vinyl liners or of fiberglass construction tend to show a decrease in alkalinity (they do not contain any natural pH buffers) over time and need Hydra pH Buffer to maintain an acceptable level.
