Balancers & Stabilisers

These products are particularly useful to buffer and keep water at a stable level. While it cannot stabilise parameters affected by external inputs such as temperature and oxygen; they are very useful for chemical parameters such as pH levels. The pH level or alkalinity of the water is crucial to a healthy water body. pH can affect chemical solubility and biological availability of nutrients and oxygen supply. In the more extreme ends of the pH scale, it can actually determine whether your plants and fish live or die. pH is the lifeblood of water quality and it is no surprise water testing labs often invest in expensive pH dedicated equipment. Not only should your pH levels be suitable (in most freshwater cases as neutral as possible around 6.5-7.5), but it should also be stable. pH fluctuations can cause shock to ecological processes and can be a stimulating factor for disease outbreaks. Adjusters such as pH up and pH down items can set the levels to a desirable range while balancers and stabilisers will keep it there or at least keep it within a small fluctuation window.
