Microbe-Lift KH Alkalinity Bio-Active Booster is essential for Nitrification and can be used for tap water, tank water and water changes
The biological removal of ammonia (nitrification) is one of the most important functions in a pond. This essential microbial process requires the presence of carbonate alkalinity in pond water at all times, as the biological ammonia removal process utilizes 7.1 mgs. of carbonate alkalinity for every 1 mg. of ammonia removed by nitrification.
Should pond carbonate levels fall below the necessary level, nitrification will stop and will fail to start again. With the loss of carbonate alkalinity pH levels will vary
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
Use MICROBE-LIFT KH Bio-Active Booster to Maintain 50-100 ppm KH at all times
