Healthy pond environment
The right water values in the garden pond are dependent on the fish stock and the plants present. Even if the water looks clear it can be contaminated. With poor values diseases or algae can appear in the pond. To maintain a healthy pond environment it is important to check and adapt the water values regularly.
PH VALUE - The pond dwellers’ well-being and aquatic plant growth depend upon a suitable pH level being kept as constant as possible. The pH level can also affect many substances dissolved in the water. Fluctuations in the pH level definitely need to be avoided.
Depending on the origin and consistency of the subsoil, the water may contain varying quantities of hardeners. Due to the effects of CO2, a large proportion of these minerals is in the form of hydrogen carbonates. By definition, the proportion of calcium and magnesium salts in the form of carbonate is described as carbonate hardness. As a rule, the carbonate hardness is below the general hardness value. In certain exceptional cases the carbonate hardness can be higher than the general hardness.
