Water quality: The essential foundation for all pond life

The health of fish and plants is dependent first and foremost on the water quality. A garden pond is restricted in its ability to clean itself on account of its relatively small volume of water, for example. With this in mind, the most important values should ideally be checked once or twice a week.
Tap water should be used when filling the pond for the first time and when replacing part of the pond water.
Rain water is naturally hardener-free and low in mineral content. This means that it does not possess the necessary buffer to provide protection from dangerous fluctuations in the acid-alkali balance (pH value). Before pouring rain water into a pond, it should thus be treated with BetterWater 5-in-1 to optimise its biological properties.
