SeaChem Pond Prime SeaChem Pond Prime 2 Liter Product Description: SeaChem Pond Prime 2 Liter Pond Prime is a complete conditioner that removes chlorine, chloramine, and detoxifies ammonia and nitrite. It also provides essential ions and stimulates natural slime coat. Pond Prime also enhances nitrate removal. It will also detoxify any heavy metals found in the tap water at typical concentration levels. It should be the first choice conditioner when setting up a new pond, adding, or changing water. No other product is required to make water safe, even in high chloramine situations. Unlike competing products, Pond Prime does not cause a pH drop or overactivate skimmers. A 500 mL bottle treats over 10,000 US gallons, much more than competing products.
Directions: Use 1/8 cup (2 tablespoons) for each 600-700 gallons for removing chlorine or chloramine. To detoxify high concentrations of ammonia or nitrite, use 1/4 to 1/2 cup for each 600 gallons. Sulfur odor is normal. For exceptionally high chloramine concentrations, a double dose may be used safely. To detoxify nitrite in an emergency, up to 5 times normal dose may be used. If temperature is > 30 C (86F) and chlorine or ammonia levels are low, use a half dose.
