JBL Carbomec ultra is an activated carbon in pellet form with extremely high absorbtion capacity. lt is particularly well suited for the long-term removal of discolouration and high molecular organic pollutants from saltwateraquariums. In freshwater aquariums.
JBL Tip: JBL Carbomec ultra should only be used for a very short length of time (max. 2-3 days) to remove residual medication or other harmful substances in freshwater aquariums. In freshwater aquariums, JBL Carbomec ultra should not be permanently used as a filter substance as beneficial substances such as protective colloids or nutrients found in modern aquarium fertilizers (JBL Ferropol) will also be absorbed.
Before using, rinse the carbon several times in warm water, then in cold water. Do not open the fleece bag. Sandwich the fleece bag of carbon between two layers of JBL Symec in the filter to prevent unnecessary soiling.
Measures to eliminate pesticides and herbicides from tap water:
- By installing the JBL Reverse Osmosis unit, 95% of all herbicides and pesticides are removed.
- If the tap water is also passed through JBL Filter Carbon before it is used, pesticides and herbicides are almost completely eliminated.
Measures to eliminate pesticides and herbicides from aquarium water:
- Depending on the pH-levels, JBL Active Carbon is used:
A.) For pH-levels up to 7,5 JBL Carbomec active is used.
B.) For pH-levels over 7,5 JBL Carbomec ultra is used.
Measures to eliminate chlorine from tap water
- Let the water stand for 12 hours and aerate.
- For low chlorine content (Europe): prepare the water with JBL Biotopol.
- For high chlorine content (e.g. USA, Japan etc.): prepare the water with Biotopol plus.
- Pass the water through a bag containing JBL Active Carbon (Carbomec active or ultra).
