Envirex was exhaustively researched during its 10-year development; many government agencies took part in the research and use the product today to control many potential problems in ponds lakes and natural waters.
Envirex is a totally natural product that degrades both solids and dissolved solids at the same time lowering ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and phosphate and other unwanted substances in pond water.
The result is a more hygienic pond in which disease is less likely to develop.
Being a totally natural product Envirex cannot kill blanket weed or algae but can inhibit their growth due to its influence on the cause of algal growths and blooms.
The benefits of Envirex are found with regular use and it can prove very economical as users are advised to customise the dose level to their own needs.
The amount required is directly related to the volume of fish stocked not the gallonage of the pond, that is why there is no accurate dose level it will vary pond to pond.
Envirex is available in 400 grams 1kg or 2 kg tubs.
To start off the system use 80 grams per 1000 gallons in a new pond and 40 grams per 1000 gallons in a mature pond and allow a week for settlement. In the average pond with a low stocking density approximately 5 grams per 1000 gallons every 5-7 days usually controls unwanted substances and solids.
When serious water quality problems are experienced with high ammonia or nitrite readings increased doses of Envirex can be used possibly 15 grams per 1000 gallons would be an average dose in this situation.
These are guidelines only and can be adapted to individual needs as Envirex is harmless and totally natural.
When Envirex is used all year round the start up dose will only be needed once at the outset.
If using Envirex regularly during the Summer but stopping use during Winter the mature pond dose needs to be introduced every Spring.
There is no need to switch off ultra violet sterilisers when using Envirex, and the product does not interfere with any pond medication or filtration additive.
