Cautions when Using Chemical Filters
Exercise Extreme Caution and Vigilance When Using Chemical Filters
Many novice pond owners (even non-beginners, actually) make the mistake of purchasing (and using) chemical filters for their ponds without actually “educating” themselves about the “do’s” and “dont’s” as well as “nuts & bolts” knowledge about the chemical filter materials (such as Zeolite and Activated Carbon) used in these setups. Be forewarned that if used incorrectly, the contaminants/pollutants “trapped” inside these filters might instead be released into your pond’s water with even deadlier (and usually lethal) results.
So exercise extreme caution (and “due diligence”) when buying and using these chemical filters.
