Liming of Waters

A continuous well-dosed use of lime in ponds has been proven successful for years. Especially the use of lime in fishponds has become a standard measure.


Geologically caused acid subsoils with a low buffer capacity in waters, also caused by the snow melding in the spring, can substantially lower the pH-value, so that the use of comminuted Cretaceous limestone is a remedial measure.

Cretaceous limestone neutralizes, activates, and disinfects when sufficiently large quantities of lime are applied.

Calcium is an indispensable mineral matter for the bone development of fish. Furthermore, the plantplankton benefits from the nutrient calcium. The pH-value range of ponds should be between 6.5 and 8. For this reason, the pH-value and the value for the acid binding capacity should be checked before carrying out liming measures.

Normally, every agricultural examination and research institute of each federal state in Germany offers this examination. You can contact advisory organs of the federal states, which is especially recommendable when using it for the first time.

For the liming of waters we offer cretaceous limestones with the pack sizes 25 and 50 kg and for large quantities we offer bulk transporter loadings.
