Pond Matrixª is a high porosity product designed to provide exceptionally efficient biofiltration for the removal of ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate from decorative ponds, thereby promoting a healthy environment for both fish and aquatic plants. Pond Matrixªcan also serve as a clean soil replacement, allowing the culture of aquatic plants without the use of muddy soils. This product is sold by volume, cited weight is minimal weight.
DIRECTIONS: For filtration use 2 L of Pond Matrixª for each 200 gallons of water. Use in any pond filter. Pond Matrixª is sufficiently large that a filter bag should not be necessary. Follow the manufacturer's recommendations for your filter. Pond Matrixª should never need replacing. Pond Matrixª makes an excellent support for root development of aquatic plants and may be used directly on the bottom of the pond or in pots. This avoids the use of soil in the pond. It may be used alone, mixed, or overlayered with river rock. For pond bottom use, it should be presoaked for several days and allowed to become water-logged and sink (although a high current will disrupt it). Pond Matrixª is inorganic and will not decompose or pollute the water.
