Tetra Pond WaterStabiliser


Tetra Pond WaterStabiliser

Stabilises important water values in garden ponds quickly and effectively, thereby preventing excessive soft water.

Dosage calculator
  • Increases carbonate hardness KH and prevents water from becoming too soft
  • Stabilises the pH level and prevents fish losses
  • Stable KH and pH levels are essential for healthy water
  • Neutralises toxic heavy metals and ammonia
  • Dissolves quickly, does not cloud the water and takes effect instantly
  • Recommended for the safe use of anti-algae products

Each month, add 600 g per 5,000 litres of pond water (KH increases by approximately 4°dH). Repeat if required, especially after heavy rainfall or before using anti-algae products and remedies. Overdoses are not dangerous. KH increase per 5,000 l of pond water: 600 g approx. 4°dH | 300 g approx. 2°dH | 150 g approx. 1°dH

Additional product information

Tetra Pond WaterStabiliser balances out the natural, continual carbonate hardness (KH) reduction in pond water to prevent excessive soft water. This also stabilises the crucial pH value to prevent potential fish losses. The KH level can particularly drop after prolonged spells of rainfall or due to natural decomposition processes. Rain water does not contain carbonate hardness but can contain acids, which also destroy the KH in the pond. The KH level is also reduced by natural decomposition processes in the garden pond. The decomposition of nitrogenous residue such as fish waste, leaves and other organic waste – known as nitrification – also releases acids that continuously reduce the carbonate hardness of the pond water. This can quickly put the fish in danger: the lower the KH level, the more the pH value of the water will fluctuate. Tetra Pond WaterStabiliser prevents these problems: stable KH and pH levels are a fundamental prerequisite for healthy water and for the well-being of the fish and all other garden pond inhabitants. Stable water values are also often a prerequisite for the use of other pond care products. Tetra Pond WaterStabiliser creates the ideal basis to safely use algaecides like Tetra Pond AlgoRem* and medicines like Tetra Pond MediFin. The pond water should be hardened before each use of these products. Before using Tetra Pond AlgoRem*, you should make sure that the carbonate hardness of the water is at least 6° dH (German degree of hardness). The product has other benefits too: it dissolves and is distributed quickly through the garden pond, does not cloud the water and works immediately. Increasing the carbonate hardness reduces the toxicity of harmful substances. It is also safe and easy to use and cannot be overdosed.

* Use algaecides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.

Stabilises important water values in garden ponds quickly and effectively, thereby preventing excessive soft water. Basic requirement for the safe use of anti-algae products.

Pond under control

Algae, cloudy water and fish losses – most pond owners have faced these problems at some time or another. The causes are often an excess of nutrients, a lack of oxygen in the water or a water hardness level that is too low. Even if the pond is initially filled with tap water, the filling of the pond with rainwater leads to a constant reduction in carbonate hardness (KH) and ultimately to an acid drop which might cause the death of fish. A study carried out by Tetra showed that in 26% of the ponds the carbonate hardness was too low.* This leads to unstable water values which might cause harm to the garden pond inhabitants.

Create safe water

To keep KH and pH values in balance and to prevent fish losses the Tetra Pond WaterStabiliser forms the basis for the safe use of other products and provides security and well-being for pond inhabitants.
