Buff-It-Up by Aqua Meds


Do you have soft water

"Stop Deadly pH crashes!"

KOI RX BUFF-it-UP Never worry about a pH crash again! Buff-it-Up, a major breakthrough in pH buffering technology.
Buff-it-Up will bring your pond water to an ideal pH and total alkalinity, which will provide the following advantages:

  • Buff-it-Up will support and stabilize your pH, stopping deadly overnight pH crashes
  • Buff-it-Up supports and helps grow the life saving beneficial bacteria in your filter, which require carbonates and a calcium source to flourish
  • Buff-it-Up improves water clarity
  • Buff-it-Up raises carbonate hardness safely and maintains it for a longer period of time than most buffers on the market
  • Buff-it-Up does not enhance algae growth
  • Buff-it-Up Phosphate Free, will not enhance algae
  • Buff-it-Up will "harden" the colors of your fish and they will become brighter and crisper in harder water

Buff-it-Up is a pH buffer and Total Alkalinity booster. Buff-it-Up does not contain cheap, unstable, sodium bicarbonate(baking soda) like many other brands. How much pond water will this product treat per pound" There is no set amount of Buff-it-Up that should be used for all ponds. As we all know, no two ponds are the same when it comes to the carbonate hardness of their water. It could take four cups or more of buffer for yours and only two cups for mine to hold the same pH. Depending on dosage, Buff-it-Up raises the pH and buffers between 7.4 and 7.8. It is gentle, safe, and enhances the freshwater environment.

Buff-it-Up is packaged in two sizes:

8 pounds and 4 pounds

Pondmaster Pond pH Buffer

Pondmaster pH Buffer will equalize and stabilize pH buffering capacity within the pond. Pond pH buffer will slowly adjust the pH of pond water which can fluctuate on a day to day basis due to many environmental factors. Additionaly, a system that recognizes proper buffering capacity will resist pH swings from morning to night. It will also allow the nitrification cycle to move easily convert nitrite to nitrate.

Safe buffering capacity levels are between 80-240. If buffering capacity is kept within this range the pH should stablize to safe levels between 6.0 - 8.0.
