Turn Off The UV Lamps To Give Time For The Bacteria

“Turn Off” Your Pond’s UV Lamps Right After the “Addition” of “Friendly” Bacteria to the Biological Filter Media.

In particular, “turn off” the UV lamps for 24 to 48 hours to “give time” for the “friendly” bacteria to sort of “frame a housing” around the filter media and/or the pond substrate. Subsequently, after 24 to 48 hours of being “turned off”, you may resume “operating” the UV lamps.
