will this product help reduce calcium biuld up in my filter

Asked by: digraf
No. You can remove it with white vinegar, but if your water has a lot of calcium carbonate in it, you cannot prevent the buildup. BREX

I'm assuming AquaSafe eliminates chloramines by breaking them down into chlorine and ammonia. Does it then neutralize the ammonia ?? If not, wouldn't that be harmful to the fish ?

Asked by: Ruffles
You are correct in your assumption as that is how all of these types of products work. No, your biological filter immediately breaks the ammonia down. No risk to the fish, unless it is a new tank and you did an ill-advised large water change, possibly. BREX

My pond loses about 150 gallons of water per week due to evaporation.  I refill by tap water, while simultaneously adding the needed amount (for 150 gls) of AquaSafe. Since AquaSafe itself does not evaporate, does this lead to a buildup of the chemicals?

Asked by: Roel
No, Aquasafe dissipates, and is no longer available in the system within a couple of minutes. It breaks down quickly, it does not build up. BREX

Our (culinary) sprinklers fill up our 500 gal pond when they run, which right now is every other day. Would you recommend treating each time they run? They run overnight, so should we treat the evening before or the morning after? 

Asked by: Dee000
It evaporates a few inches in a 2 days. Before we turned on the sprinklers we were having to top it off every few days, but now that the sprinklers are going we haven't had to and it's even hotter now, so I assume the sprinklers are responsible for keeping it full. We'll try adding some morning and night and see how it goes. Thanks!

Hi, I have a bottle of Aqua Safe Pond Water Conditioner & I can't read the label for the mixing directions. They have rubbed off. Also this was left in an unheated area over the winter. Does this freeze & is it still good? Thanks, Rick Bailey.

Asked by: Beetle
Hi Rick, Here are the instructions: Calculate pond gallons: Length (ft.) x Width (ft.) x Average Depth (ft.) = cubic feet Cubic feet x 7.5 = pond gallons DOSAGE: New ponds or whenever adding tap water • 10 ml for every 50 gallons of tap water (Use top of supplied screw cap) • 1/4 cup (60ml) for every 300 gallons of pond water (Dedicate use of measuring cup to pond water treatments only) SPECIAL DOSAGE SITUATIONS: If chlorine levels in your tap water are high enough that you can smell the chlorine, use up to double the normal dosage. Use AquaSafe® whenever you add water to your pond. For outdoor ornamental ponds only. Keep out of reach of children. Freezing is not good for most chemicals, so it may not be as effective now. BREX

Would this be a good product to use in a pond fed by lake water?

Asked by: whats up
Hello whats up, Yes, if you are concerned about heavy metals being in the water, or wish to aid the slime coat of the fish. You don't need it for chlorine or chloramines, of course. If your fish are ill or stressed though, the ingredient in it that helps to keep the slime coat healthy would be beneficial. Also, even lake water can have heavy metals, depending on the terrain in the area. BREX
