API PondCare pH UP 16oz.
What is pH? pH is the measure of acidity or alkalinity of water. A pH reading of 7.0 is neutral, a pH higher than 7.0 is alkaline, and a pH lower than 7.0 is acidic. The pH level of a pond can be different from day to day. Pond water should be tested for pH levels regularly. When tests show a change in pH, use pH Up or pH Down to slowly adjust the pH to a desired level.
Slowly lower the pH of pond water (making it more acidic) without harming delicate pond fish or aquatic plants. Slowly neutralizes alkaline substances that cause high pH (pH of pond water is affected by mineral leaching, soil runoff & decomposing waste). A high pH limits the ability of aquatic plants to absorb necessary nutrients. Contains no algae-promoting phosphates.

|To Lower the pH||Add 1 teaspoons per 50 gallons of pond water. Carefully mix desired dose with 2 gallons of pond water in a plastic bucket and distribute evenly around the perimeter of the pond.|
|To Raise the pH||Add 2 teaspoons per 50 gallons of pond water. For best results, add to water flow.|
|pH should not be raised or lowered more than .5 units every 24 hours. Do not treat the pond more than once in a 24 hour period.|
