Pond FAQs

Will the dechlorinator remove Chloramine?
Detox has been designed and tested for removing chlorine only, it will remove other impurities such as chloramine, bromine, malachite green, dyes, colours, humic acids, organics, proteins, antibiotics, hormones and ozone but the levels of removal have...
What should I do when the dechlorinator is not in use?
Store it vertically and allow the water to drain away. Store in the dark to prevent algae growth.
What fittings come with the Detox Dechlorinator?
The Detox comes with hose fittings to attach your Detox to standard hosepipe.
What fittings are required to hard plumb the Detox Dechlorinator?
To hard plumb the Detox you require a ¾" single union female threaded to plain female connector and suitable pipe, we would suggest using some PTFE tape to ensure a water tight seal.
What can I use to mount the Detox Dechlorinator?
We would recommend using our 4" Pipe Clips. They are available to purchase from our parts store: https://evolutionaqua.com/tube-clips
What’s the difference between Pure Pond, Pure Pond Bomb and Filter Start Gel?
Filter Start Gel should be used to kick-start brand new filters, or existing filters which have changed to brand new biological media. Pour the gel directly over the media. Pure Pond is a maintenance product which can be used regularly on new and established...
Can I use all three Pure Pond products?
Yes, Gel to start your filter, Bomb for rapid bacteria replacement, and Pure Pond for regular addition and maintenance.
Can I place Pure Pond straight into the pond?
Yes, but a Bomb is better to drop straight into the pond as it is a large, gel ball. Pure Pond is small, so if you have water movement and fish it will travel around the pond, when it is best in a filter bag, in your filter, where it is contained. Gel...
Will my fish eat Pure, and will it harm my fish?
Ravenous Koi carp may eat Pure Pond if you offer it to them as if you were feeding them. Pure is only made up of beneficial bacteria and gel, but fish eating it should be discouraged.
Does Pure leave anything behind?
Yes, Pure Pond shrinks as bacteria is released, and a small bead about 5mm in diameter will remain. It is safe, and can be removed, or left in the filter with other biological media. Pure Pond may crack, split and shrink as all the bacteria leaves the...
Is Pure safe for wildlife?
Yes, Pure is 100% safe for fish, amphibians, invertebrates, bathing birds, and mammals visiting the pond to drink. But wash hands after use, keep out of reach of children and don’t ingest it.
Where can I buy Pure Products?
Every Evolution Aqua stockist will either have them in stock, or can order them in.
I haven’t got a filter. Can I still use Pure?
Yes, Pure can be added to a wildlife pond or static water feature with no problems.
Can I overdose my pond with Pure?
No, but the bacteria inside Pure is aerobic (oxygen demanding,) so adding far too much Pure may deplete a pond’s oxygen levels, unless sufficient water movement and aeration is in place.
What temperature is Pure effective at?
If water temperature is below 10°C, Pure is less effective. As Pure contains natural bacteria and enzymes it will be more effective as temperatures rise.
Do I put the gel in when dosing the pond with the Pond Bomb or Pure Pond?
Yes, the gel is fine to apply to the filter. You can add the Pure Pond bomb as part of the start up process of your pond.
What is the expiry date of PURE Pond?
PURE Pond has a shelf life of 2 years. There is a label on the bottom of the tub which clearly displays the expiry date and batch number. Please store all PURE products out of reach of children, in a safe place, with the lid tightly closed and in a cool...

No, you don't need to turn your UV off when dosing your pond with Pure Pond products (Pure Pond Balls and Pure Pond Bomb). You will need to turn it off when using the Pure Filter Start Gel and follow the directions as stated on the bottle. Please follow...
How often should I dose my pond with Pure Pond?
To maintain a biological equilibrium in the pond, we recommend dosing with Pure Pond balls once a month. This will also help to maintain clear water. For best results use when the water temperature is above 10°C.
How often should I dose my pond with Pure Pond Bomb?
A Pure Pond Bomb should be used as and when required to rapidly address biological and clarity issues. You cannot overdose the pond with Pure Pond Bomb, and you could continue to use Pure Pond Bombs repeatedly if you prefer. However we recommend, for...
