Info: AmGuard Dosing Instructions

Use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 200 L (50 US gallons) daily or as needed to reduce ammonia.

ADVANCED: If you have an Ammonia Alert® that is reading “Alert”, then use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 400 L (100 gallons) daily. If it reads “Alarm”, then use 1 capful for every 200 L (50 gallons) daily. If it reads “Toxic”, then use 1 capful for every 80 L (20 gallons) daily.

EXPERT: If using our MultiTest: Free & Total Ammonia test kit, use 1 capful (5 mL) for every 40 L (10 gallons) to remove 1 mg/L (ppm) of free ammonia. Alternatively you may employ the following formula for a variety of ammonia and water levels: 0.125AV=m (for volume in liters) or 0.5AV=m (for volume in gallons). A=ammonia concentration in mg/L, V=the volume of water being treated and m=the volume of AmGuard™ to use in mL. For example, to remove 1 mg/L of ammonia in 100 gallons you would use 0.5*1*100=50 mL.

If water temperature is above 30 °C (86 °F) do not use.
