AquaChar is a natural alternative to activated carbon that buffers pH while working for months
 
Carbon has long relationship with purifying water. Almost all of the activated carbon used in aquariums (and water purification in general) starts with a base of lignite or bituminous carbon. What most don’t know is that both lignite and bituminous carbon are byproducts of the fossil fuel industry (in the form of coal waste). Because of the low ash point of these carbons they made into a powder, heated at low temperatures, then turned into a paste in order to be granulated to a universal size. The final step is to artificially increased porosity by dipping the pellets into hydrochloric acid and rinsing off. This post-production processing is required but limits the effective life span of activated carbon from days to a couple weeks. 
 
For millions of years, forest fires and rain flowing into streams, rivers and oceans has been nature’s way of cleaning itself. What makes AquaChar unique is our process burns wood to several thousand degrees higher than the ash point, allowing for no post-production       processing using caustic chemicals. As the carbon molecules structures inside AquaChar it forces out impurities which are used as fuel to increase temperature. This leaves behind the light weight carbon 
 
  • AquaChar has a negative charge: Broken down (positively charged) organics is the cause of most water clarity issues. Negatively charged ionsin 12-48 hours. 
  • AquaChar magnetically pull fine particulates out of the water creating crystal clear water in 12-48 hours.
  • AquaChar naturally buffers pH: For Freshwater AquaChar stabilizes pH between 7.5-7.7 and saltwater between 8.1-8.4. When used in saltwater aquariums, AquaChar also minimizes the nightly pH drops. This additional stability resulting in noticeably better polyp extensions and coral growth.
  • AquaChar works for several months: Typically 3-6+ months depending on bioload. When particles appear, add the new dose to existing AquaChar to increase the size of your septic tank! 
 
When introduced to water: AquaChar begins to crackles and harden. You can see the oxygen bubbles being released from the surface of AquaChar as it begins to interact. 
 
 AquaChar has the natural porosity trees use to bring water from roots to leaves. This massive surface area (20 bioballs per gram) of stored organics makes AquaChar the ideal support system for beneficial bacteria to colonize.
 
You will notice having to clean algae off the glass less often: the negative charge not only pulls fine organics but also the algae that builds on the glass. 
Which creates a septic tank: Once AquaChar is colonized with beneficial bacteria, the negative charge allows for a more on demand absorption and breakdown of organics which stabilizes ammonia, nitrites, and nitrates.
 
Directions of use:
 
  • Use 250ml / 1 cup per 200L / 50 gallon.
  • Place new AquaChar in a mesh bag and rinse thoroughly.
  • AquaChar lasts for 3-6 months depending on your bio-load. When changes are noticeable, remove 3/4 of the existing AquaChar and replace with new AquaChar to allow the bacteria to jump start the fresh AquaChar.
