High Nitrates Level? Try This!

Hi Rahim, Melvin and All
The chemistry and bacteria reaction of the trickle filter is difficult to explain it on this forum as they evolve around the H+(Hydrogen), O2(oxygen) and N(Nitrogren).

In short, the large increase in the good bacteria together with its bacterial reaction and O2 *takes* away the nitrites during the conversion process(ie from NH3 to N02). The end resutlt is no or little nitrites is left for Nitrobacter reaction after going thro' the trickle resulting in no or little nitrates(which is the end product) leaving the filter system and back into the pond.

Hope this help and best regards.
