Fall and Winter is the Optimal Time for Liming Your Pond

Fall and winter is the optimal time of the year to have us add lime to your pond. Liming is important in ponds since the proper water pH is 6.5 to 9.0, much higher than that needed in terrestrial systems. Low water pH can reduce and later stop fish reproductive success, and dramatically high or low pH can cause fish kills. Liming ponds will adjust the pH and alkalinity so that fertilization will increase pond productivity, increasing fish production by about 300% and improving water quality for fish.
