pH is the measure of acidity or alkalinity of water. A pH reading of 7.0 is neutral, a pH higher than 7.0 is alkaline, and a pH lower than 7.0 is acidic. The pH level of a pond can be different from day to day. Pond water should be tested for pH levels regularly. When tests show a change in pH, use pH Up or pH Down to slowly adjust the pH to a desired level.
|API pH Up & pH Down Dosage
|To Lower the pH
|Add 1 teaspoons per 50 gallons of pond water. Carefully mix desired dose with 2 gallons of pond water in a plastic bucket and distribute evenly around the perimeter of the pond.
|To Raise the pH
|Add 2 teaspoons per 50 gallons of pond water. For best results, add to water flow.
|pH should not be raised or lowered more than .5 units every 24 hours. Do not treat the pond more than once in a 24 hour period.
|Repeat treatment as necessary.
