Microbe-Lift KH-Carbonate Alkalinity Booster

Essential for Nitrification

When pond carbonate levels fall below the necessary level, nitrification stops and will fail to start again. With the loss of KH (carbonate alkalinity) pH levels will vary and pH will be difficult to control as KH stabilizes pond pH.

Use for: tap water, tank water, change water

  • 2 lbs approx 49 scoops
  • 8 lbs approx 196 scoops
  • 20 lbs approx 490 scoops
  • 50 lbs approx 1225 scoops

Example:

To raise KH in 4,000 gal pond, wanting to keep the KH level above 80 ppm:

To raise by 25 ppm→ add 40 scoops

To raise by 50 ppm→ add 80 scoops

To raise by 80 ppm (in pond that has crashed)→ add 133 scoops

(Ideal KH level in a pond is 100-300 ppm, with the higher the better, especially in heavily stocked ponds and lined ponds)

Microbe-Lift KH-Carbonate Alkalinity Booster Dosage
A full flat level scoop (enclosed, holds 1 tbsp) will raise the KH by approximately:80/ppm in 30 gallons 50/ppm in 50 gallons 25/ppm in 100 gallons
