With Chemi-mat you can rid yourself
of all the problems associated with the other phosphate removers.
Some remove phosphates to slowly; some give concern that there
will be a reaction to the other chemicals present in your aquarium.
Other methods have a physical breakdown, endangering both the
filtration system and the aquarium chemical balance. The chemi-mat
pad is built both chemical and structurally sound and it will
retain its integrity not only during the 48 hours that it requires
to eradicate the phosphate, but for as long as you leave it in
Chemi-mat requires an initial
wetting out period for 24 hours, prior to be coming active. then
it will absorb the phosphates as they pass through the pad for
an additional 24 hours (two days total).because chemi-mat can
not release the captured phosphate, the pad may be left safely
in the aquarium or filter for an extended period pass the minimum
48 hours. when the process has been completed simply remove the
pad and discard.
Chemi- mat should only be used
when you have identified the phosphates are present. This is
normally indicated by an out growth of hair algae or the use
of phosphate test kit. All though no harm will be done to youre
aquarium, if you ad another pad for normal maintenance, it will
be impossible to know when the pad has become fully saturated.
Chemi-mat comes with two 6x
12in sheets; both must be used simultaneously and will
treat up to 400 gallons. Chemi-mat can be placed in almost any
filter and does not need water to be forced through it simply
ensure that the pad is completely submerged and if installed
in the filter, has an adequate flow over or through it. Chemi-mat
can not be regenerated.
