What is pH?

The measure of the acidity of water is pH. A pH reading of 7.0 is neutral, a pH higher than 7.0 is alkaline, and lower than 7.0 is acidic. The pH of pond water will naturally fluctuate, and pond fish and plants are accustomed to these fluctuations. A pH range between 6.8 and 8.0 is ideal for garden ponds. However, acid rain, mineral leaching, soil runoff, and decomposing plant and fish waste can cause unacceptable pH levels to occur. Some sources of tap water used to fill ponds can also cause extreme pH levels. A pH below 6.8 or above 8.0 should be avoided. A pH level of 7.0 is ideal. Low pH levels of less than 6.8 can stress pond fish and suppress the activity of the biological filter. A high pH of more than 8.0 will limit the ability of many plants to absorb necessary nutrients.

Pond Care pH Up and pH Down adjust the pH in garden ponds by neutralizing excess acid or base. These products can be used daily to adjust pH until conditions stabilize. pH Up and pH Down contain no algae-promoting phosphates. It is important to accurately measure the level of pH in a pond before initiating adjustments.
