    Pond NovAqua® Plus is the leading advanced water conditioner and fish protector. This instant acting water conditioner supplements the natural slime coating of fish – protecting wounds and preventing loss of internal fluids and electrolytes.

    Tap water may be safe for humans, but in most localities it is not safe for fishes and aquatic invertebrates, and needs to be modified when setting up ponds or making water changes. NovAqua Plus utilizes inorganic salts, organic polymers, herbal extracts (i.e. echinacea) and electrolytes to produce safe and beneficial water conditions. It breaks apart chlorine molecules which eliminates chlorine from the water – actually detoxifying twice as much chlorine and chloramines as original Pond NovAqua, along with other heavy metals including copper, lead and zinc.

    NovAqua Plus is the latest stage of technological development in water conditioners and is the most effective tap water conditioner for benefiting aquatic life, providing everything necessary to keep your water and pond life safe.

    For best results, use with AmQuel or AmQuel Plus to fully remove all toxins from your tap water.

    Pond NovAqua Plus neutralizes chlorine and the full effect of chloramines Chloramines in municipal water supplies are a very serious problem for aquarists and pond keepers. Chloramines are a combination of chlorine and ammonia that together make a chemical compound that is much more stable and highly toxic to viruses and bacteria than either is alone. Chloramines are also very toxic to fishes and aquatic invertebrates. Over 50% of all municipalities in the U.S. now have chloramines added to the water supply. The American Water Works Association now strongly recommends that all municipal water suppliers add chloramines to their water supply, because of increasing amounts of pathogens in water sources due to water pollution. Chloramines are are lethal to all water-breathing aquatic animals. It is becoming essential that aquarists and pond keepers use a chloramine remover in all water that they take from the tap for their fishes and aquatic invertebrates. Pond NovAqua Plus buffers tap water When tap water is used, it comes out of the tap greatly reduced in oxygen. When tapwater that is low or devoid of oxygen comes in contact with the air its pH fluctuates rapidly while it is picking up oxygen and carbon dioxide. If tap water is added directly to the aquarium in which fishes and aquatic invertebrates are living, the fluctuations in pH can be very stressful, and may be lethal. Pond NovAqua Plus contains a high capacity buffering system that stops pH fluctuations in the water, stabilizes acidity/alkalinity to avoid pH shock, and allows fish to adapt safely to new environments. Pond NovAqua Plus detoxifies heavy metals Toxic metal ions in water can come from various sources, including home and commercial plumbing, medications, decorations and metal objects placed in the aquarium or pond, etc. It is essential to detoxify heavy metals in the water supply for the fish to survive. The detoxifying capability of Pond NovAqua Plus precipitates the metal ions into harmless compounds, rather than chelating them. Pond NovAqua Plus forms a unique insoluble, polymeric salt with heavy metals that is stable under conditions of both high and low pH. This is a notable advantage over other products that rely strictly upon the chelation process. Pond NovAqua Plus removes iodine When using iodine as a treatment, its effect can be reduced or eliminated by using Pond NovAqua Plus. Pond NovAqua Plus works with all filters, aerators, and protein skimmers There is no interference between Pond NovAqua Plus and all types of filters, protein skimmers, and aerators.
    Standard doses for Pond NovAqua Plus Use 3-6 drops per gallon, or 1 teaspoon (approximately 5 ml) per 30 gallons of water, or 1 tablespoon (approx. 15 ml) per 90 gallons of water, or 1 fl oz for 150 gallons. When used at the recommended standard dose, 4 ounces of regular Pond NovAqua Plus will treat 500 gallons of water, 1 gallon of regular Pond NovAqua Plus will treat 19,200 gallons of water, 5 gallons of regular Pond NovAqua Plus will treat 96,000 gallons of water. It is recommended that Pond NovAqua Plus be used, rather than the original Kordon Pond NovAqua, because Pond NovAqua Plus carries out much more in beneficial functions that improve aquarium and pond keeping.
    Compatibilities Kordon’s Pond NovAqua Plus is compatible with all Kordon herbal products, all Kordon water conditioners, including Kordon’s AmQuel and AmQuel Plus , all Kordon medications, as well as with the majority of non-oxidizing medications used in the control of fish diseases. Pond NovAqua Plus will precipitate ionic (non-chelated) copper but will react only slowly with chelated copper. This product is safe for use in new or established aquaria and ponds and will not interfere in normal biological filtration or with any of the nitrifying bacteria. When tap water sources contain chloramines, residual ammonia will remain after treating with Pond NovAqua Plus . Use AmQuel Plus or AmQuel to remove the toxic ammonia Contraindications Pond NovAqua Plus is not a registered medication or chemotherapeutic agent and is not indicated for any specific disease. CAUTIONS No cautions are required in the use of this product. Pond NovAqua Plus does not reach toxic levels with regular use or upon accidental or purposeful overdose. It is safe for reef and “live rock” aquariums. Pond NovAqua Plus is non-toxic to humans, pets and aquatic life.
    Specifications NovAqua Plus is a unique liquid combination of electrolytes, inorganic salts, buffering system, reducing agents (dechlorinators), synthetic polymers, vitamins, product stabilizers, Edetates for heavy metals removal, and organic herbal extracts containing polysaccharides, alkylamides, and phenolics — all of which variously produce highly desirable results in freshwater and marine systems for keeping fishes, invertebrates and plants alive and healthy.

Pond NovAqua Plus must not be frozen. If the product is suspected of being frozen, inspect the contents for evidence of crystals. If crystals have formed, the product should be discarded.. Normally Pond NovAqua Plus should have a clear to slightly cloudy appearance. Do not use if it has a milky appearance. Pond NovAqua Plus does not become toxic with age or freezing, but its effectiveness is reduced.
