Microbe-Lift KH Bio Active Booster

Call for Price

Microbe-Lift KH Bio Active Booster restores KH (carbonate alkalinity) essential for nitrification. Use for all types of water.

When pond carbonate levels fall below the necessary level, nitrification will stop and will fail to start again. With the loss of KH (carbonate alkalinity) pH levels will vary and pH will be difficult to control as KH stabilizes pond pH.

The natural biological ammonia removal process in ponds referred to as nitrification and:

  • Requires the presence of KH (carbonate alkalinity) at all times.
  • Utilizes 7.1 mg. of KH for every 1 mg. of ammonia removed.
  • Continuously depletes KH so KH must be monitored and restored as necessary with Microbe-Lift KH Bio-Active Booster.
  • Contains a proprietary blend of Carbonate Hardness constituents and bacterial cultures.

Maintain 50-100 ppm KH at all times to assure propper nitrification.

A full flat level scoop (enclosed) will raise the KH by approximately:

  • 80 mg/l in 110 litre
  • 50 mg/l in 190 litre
  • 25 mg/l in 375 litre

or flat level scoop will raise the KH by about [9450/(pond litre)] mg/l.


To raise the KH by 25 mg/l in a 15000 litre pond add (25 * 15000) / 9450 = 40 level scoops

NOTE: Ideal KH level in pond is 100-300 mg/l, with the higher the better, especially in heavily stocked ponds and lined ponds.
