Tetra launches Pond FilterStart Bacteria
14th May 2019

Tetra has brought out Pond FilterStart Bacteria, a water conditioner that combines two types of natural, highly active bacteria to ensure optimal pond care.

A spokesman said: “By activating pond filters and reducing filter mud levels, the solution is able to boost effective biological filtration and eliminate ammonia and nitrite. This in turn not only improves the service life of your customer’s filter, but also makes ongoing pond maintenance and cleaning much easier.”

A properly functioning filter is crucial to maintain a pond’s biological balance as beneficial and helpful filter bacteria collect in the filter materials to break down pollutants and organic substances.

However, as most filter bacteria are lost through the regular cleaning required or after dormant periods, such as winter, Tetra’s Pond FilterStart can help kick start the pond season, helping to replenish lost bacteria to restore biological balance in garden ponds.

Ashleigh Foster, aquatics marketing manager, said: “We’re excited to launch our new Pond FilterStart Bacteria water conditioner, which makes caring for ponds and fish even easier than before.

“Our solution, which includes bacteria from our very own biofarm, helps to break down harmful substances including organic pollutants that can build up in the pond filter during winter due to fish waste, food remains and foliage to ensure waters are biologically balanced.”

The Tetra Pond FilterStart Bacteria conditioner is available in 500ml and 1L bottles with an RRP of £16 and £26.70.
