  • Reduces the pollutants (ammonium and nitrite) in the pond with living filter bacteria
  • Breaks down organic substances (fish waste, foliage, etc.) with special cleaning bacteria
  • Increases the service life of pond filters and thereby extends the cleaning intervals
  • Improves water quality and prevents decay
  • Purely biological effect
Dosage

Shake well before use. Use the measuring cup to add 100 ml per 1,000 l of pond water. Dilute with pond water in a container and slowly distribute over the filter inner substrate. Use the entire contents of the bottle to prevent any from being left over. Cannot overdose. Leave for approximately 1 hour before reconnecting the filter. Then switch on the filter. To ensure optimal filter function after the winter break, temperatures should be kept above 10°C.

Additional product information

Tetra Pond FilterStart activates the pond filter after winter or when setting up a new pond and extends the intervals between cleaning. It contains a mix of highly active filter bacteria, which break down harmful substances, and sludge-reducing cleaning bacteria. Effective and beneficial bacteria in the filter are important for maintaining a healthy biological balance and good water quality. The living filter bacteria reduce the pollutants (ammonium and nitrite) in the pond. Special cleaning bacteria break down organic substances in the filter caused by fish waste and foliage in the pond water. These biological breakdown processes prevent decay. As well as its positive effect on water quality, the product increases the pond filter’s service life, extending the intervals between cleaning. Tetra Pond FilterStart has a purely biological effect. This makes it perfect for pond care and preventing contamination in the filter, particularly when the pond season starts in the spring and after filter cleaning or following medical treatment.

FAQ

Is Tetra Pond FilterStart safe for all of my fish?

Yes, this product is safe for all aquarium inhabitants – fish, plants and microorganisms – and can be used with total peace of mind. It is 100% biological and designed for use in garden ponds with fish and plants. Even if you use too much, you don’t need to worry (see next question).


What happens if I put too much Tetra Pond FilterStart in my pond?

Tetra Pond FilterStart is 100% biological. Excessive amounts have no negative effects. If an excessive amount of the product is added or the pond’s nutrient content is too high, oxygen consumption may increase due to increased bacterial activity. In such cases, you should ensure a sufficient oxygen supply, for example using a diaphragm pump. A stable population of these beneficial microorganisms will then be established through natural means and the biological balance will be restored.


What is the shelf life of Tetra Pond FilterStart?

It can be kept for at least 18 months without refrigeration at temperatures between 2°C and 30°C.


What is the difference between Tetra Pond FilterStart and Tetra Pond SedimentMinus?

Both products use beneficial bacteria for biological (natural) water cleaning. Tetra Pond FilterStart is specially developed to activate the pond filter when the filter is started in the spring, after filter cleaning or following medical treatment. Nitrifiers and cleaning bacteria are added to the filter material. The nitrifiers break down ammonia and nitrite, while the cleaning bacteria prevent sediment from building up in the filter. Tetra Pond FilterStart should be used once. A biological balance will then be achieved naturally.


Tetra Pond SedimentMinus should be added to pond water on a regular basis and prevents the build-up of excess sediment in garden ponds. Beneficial microorganisms break down organic substances such as foliage, dead plant parts, food remains and fish waste to improve the quality of the pond water.


What is the difference between Tetra Pond FilterStart and Tetra Pond SeasonStart?

Tetra Pond FilterStart is specially developed to activate the pond filter when the filter is started in the spring, after filter cleaning or following medical treatment. Nitrifiers and cleaning bacteria are added to the filter material. The nitrifiers break down ammonia and nitrite, while the cleaning bacteria prevent sediment from building up in the filter. Tetra Pond FilterStart should be used once. A biological balance will then be achieved naturally.


Tetra Pond SeasonStart is also a care product designed for the start of the pond season in the spring. After the winter, Tetra Pond SeasonStart adds important vitamins and minerals to the pond water and reduces the algal nutrient phosphate.
