Tetra Pond FilterStart activates the pond filter after winter or when setting up a new pond and extends the intervals between cleaning. It contains a mix of highly active filter bacteria, which break down harmful substances, and sludge-reducing cleaning bacteria.
Effective and beneficial bacteria in the filter are important for maintaining a healthy biological balance and good water quality. The living filter bacteria reduce the pollutants (ammonium and nitrite) in the pond. Special cleaning bacteria break down organic substances in the filter caused by fish waste and foliage in the pond water.
These biological breakdown processes prevent decay. As well as its positive effect on water quality, the product increases the pond filter's service life, extending the intervals between cleaning. Tetra Pond FilterStart has a purely biological effect. This makes it perfect for pond care and preventing contamination in the filter, particularly when the pond season starts in the spring and after filter cleaning or following medical treatment.
Shake well before use. Use the measuring cup to add 100 ml per 1,000 l of pond water. Dilute with pond water in a container and slowly distribute over the filter inner substrate. Use the entire contents of the bottle to prevent any from being left over. Cannot overdose. Leave for approximately 1 hour before reconnecting the filter. Then switch on the filter. To ensure optimal filter function after the winter break, temperatures should be kept above 10°C.
