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.
