How to Raise the Alkalinity of your Pond Water pH

The pH level in a fish tank or pond is one of the many factors you must consider when setting up a fish farming business.

There are easy ways to test, raise and maintain healthy levels of alkalinity in your pond water that is too acidic.

Depending on the pH level of your tap water and the level that your fish require, you may need to add a base to your pond water reserve thank to maintain healthy alkaline levels; optimum 6.5 -7.5 range.

A pH level indicates how acidic or basic a solution is on a scale of 0 to 14. Pure water sits in the middle of the scale at 7 and is considered neutral. Any solution above 7 is basic, or alkaline. Anything below 7 is acidic.

Know Your water pH

Before altering the pH of the water in your pond, you must know two pieces of information:

Your current pH levels. If you use stream, well or tap water, the pH level will vary depending on your location.

Usually, it’s anywhere from a 6.5 to 7.5.

We sell digital ph & Temperature meter (it's 2 in 1 as it measures pH & Temperature) that you can use to determine your tank’s pH levels and Temperature level.

It tell you other information you need to know about the quality of the water in your tank.

TAKE NOTE:
You have been rearing your fish for some months now and you got no issues, suddenly you noticed that Above 50 % of your fishes just died without early signal, symptoms of being sick, infected. That's how dangerous it is to ignore fish pond water pH.

You can loose your whole investment before you say JACK!

DON'T EVEN START IF YOU ARE NOT SURE ABOUT YOUR POND WATER pH and parameters. They won't tell you this, but I have told you now.

Several factors can alter the pH level of your tank even over the course of a day, so regularly test the levels to maintain a healthy environment for your fish. Test atleast 4 times in a day to be sure and safe.

Which pH level is best for your fish. Typically, the pH level of a freshwater tank should be kept between 6.5 and 7.5.


If you determine that you should raise the alkalinity of your pond water, there are a few ways to do so.

You can also add one of the most common bases, baking soda, to the reserve water tank.

⭕️Adding about 1 teaspoon of baking soda per 5 gallons of water to the tank should result in an incremental change that leads to a healthier pH level.

⭕️Take care to make changes gradually. A rapid spike in alkalinity can be even more dangerous for a fish than a few more hours in water that is too acidic.

⭕️Try not to make a change in the pH level greater than 0.3 over a 24-hour period.

With the right knowledge and alkaline buffers or baking soda, soda ash, it can be easy to maintain healthy levels of alkalinity that keep the fish happy and healthy in your pond
