Frequently asked questions about Teichlehm

Pond Advice

Teichlehm is a natural material rich in minerals and trace elements, essential for the health and clarity of pond water. It consists of fine clay particles derived from specific soil layers, which are known for their purifying and nourishing properties.

Teichlehm plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy pond ecosystem by absorbing pollutants such as toxins, metals and ammonium. It also provides essential minerals that promote aquatic plant growth and support fish health.

The application of Teichlehm depends on the size of your pond and the specific needs of the water and its inhabitants. Generally, it is added directly to pond water in recommended amounts, which vary by product. It is important to carefully follow the instructions on the package.

The frequency of adding Teichlehm can vary depending on various factors such as water quality, fish and plant occupancy, and pond size. A general guideline is to add it once a month, but it is advisable to test the water quality regularly and adjust the dosage accordingly.

In general, Teichlehm is safe for use in ponds and provides many benefits for both water quality and pond inhabitants. However, as with all additives to your pond, it is important not to overdose. Excess Teichlehm can lead to water imbalances or clouding of the water. Always follow the recommended amounts and monitor water quality.
