Pond Care Pond Salt

 

Pond Care Pond Salt

Pond fish actively maintain a natural balance of electrolytes in their body fluids. Electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, chloride, calcium and magnesium are removed from the water by chloride cells located in the gills. These electrolytes are essential for the uptake of oxygen and release of carbon dioxide and ammonium across gill membranes. The lack of electrolytes can cause health problems in pond fish. Pond Care POND SALT is an all-natural salt, providing essential electrolytes fish need to survive. POND SALT is not just a table salt (sodium chloride). It is made from evaporated seawater.

How POND SALT helps improve gill function to reduce stress…

            During periods of disease and stress, healthy gill function is disturbed. This can lead to the loss of electrolytes through the gills, called osmotic shock. Osmotic shock reduces the intake of oxygen and the release of carbon dioxide and ammonium from the gills. POND SALT reduces the risk of osmotic shock by replenishing natural electrolytes fish need.

How POND SALT reduces nitrite toxicity…

Overcrowding and overfeeding can lead to elevated nitrite levels, especially in newly set-up ponds. The nitrite ion N02- enters the gills and prevents the blood from carrying oxygen, resulting in nitrite toxicity or by blocking the uptake of nitrite ions (methemoglobinemia). POND SALT will reduce the toxic effect of nitrite.

Provide essential electrolytes fish need to survive with an all-natural salt, made from evaporated sea water. Improves gill function, protects against nitrite toxicity & reduces stress by helping to maintain a natural balance of electrolytes in the body fluids of pond fish. Can safely be used with all PondCare® water conditioners, filtration materials, medications & fish foods. Monitor salt levels with a PondCare Salt Level Test Kit.
 

Directions For Use:

Once added to the pond, salt does not evaporate and is not filtered out! After making the initial treatment with Pond Salt, add more salt only when making a water change. If, for example, you remove 50 gallons with a water change add only enough salt for 50 gallons.

Ponds without plants:
Add one 2 ˝ cupfuls (728 g) for every 100 U.S. gallons (378 L) of pond water. Sprinkle the salt evenly around the perimeter of the pond. After one hour, measure the salt level with the Salt level Test Kit. The salt level should be 0.2%. Add a small amount of salt if necessary. Make a 10% to 20% water change to reduce the salt level.


Certain aquatic plants are sensitive to salt; use this lower salt level when plants are present. Add one 1 1/4 cupfuls (364 g) for every 100 U.S. gallons (378 L) of pond water. Sprinkle the salt evenly around the perimeter of the pond. After one hour, measure the salt level with the Salt level Test Kit. The salt level should be 0.1%. Add a small amount of salt if necessary. Make a 10% to 20% water change to reduce the salt level.

Disease treatment:
Aquarium Salt may be used as a short-term bath to treat external parasites (Tricodina, Ichthyobodo, or Epistylis). Using a clean plastic container, dissolve 2 ˝ cups (370 g) for every 10 U.S. gallons (40 L) of water. Do not use tap water. Carefully place the infested fish in the salt bath (2.0 %) for 5 to 10 minutes then.
DO NOT leave the fish in the salt bath for longer than 10 minutes. Be sure to cover the bath container with netting or similar material to prevent fish from jumping out of the bath container. After 10 minutes, place the treated fish back into the pond. The salt bath may be repeated in 24 hours if necessary.
 

Compatibility:

Pond Salt can be used withal pond fish including goldfish and koi. Pond Salt will not change pH. Some aquatic plants grow better at a lower salt level. When adding salt to a water garden containing plants, use the lower salt level (see Directions for use).
