Can I use several anti-algae agents together in the pond?
Each JBL anti-algae agent has a special purpose. It is therefore not necessary to use several AlgoPond products at the same time. Use AlgoPond Green to combat green water. Use AlgoPond forte for thread algae and all other types of algae. If you want to change the product, allow a time interval of 14 days, a water change of at least 50 % and filtering via activated carbon. The products StabiloPond and PhosEx may, of course, be used together with an AlgoPond algae agent according to the 1-2-3 algae-free principle.
What is the difference between JBL StabiloPond Basis and JBL StabiloPond KH?
JBL StabiloPond Basis raises both the total hardness and the carbonate hardness. JBL StabiloPond KH raises the total hardness to the carbonate hardness at a ratio of 1:2.
How and when do I use JBL StabiloPond KH?
How to use JBL StabiloPond KH:
In the evenings before the algae treatment, so that there is a sufficient buffer for the stabilization of the pH value.
After strong rainfall (thunderstorms in summer), because the rain can degrade the carbonate hardness as well as diluting it (key word: acid rain).
Use a dosage of 200g / 1.000 l pond water for the first application, or with carbonate hardness 0. For follow-up treatments 100g / 1000 l pond water is sufficient.
The powder is sprinkled onto the pond. Do not dissolve it in water beforehand. This will cause it to foam, which reduces the stabilizing effect for the pond water.
I followed the instructions and used JBL StabiloPond KH in the evenings and JBL Algo Pond Forte in the mornings. But I couldn’t see any difference.
It is the correct procedure to use JBL StabiloPond in the evenings and JBLPond Forte in the mornings. However, depending on the conditions in the pond, the active substance needs 2-5 days before a reduction in algae growth becomes apparent. This cannot become apparent within a few hours. If necessary an additional dosage of AlgoPond Forte can be applied. This is useful in individual cases, when there is a very high level of algae growth.
