Within the pondkeeping hobby there are mixed opinions about the use of pond salt. If the correct doses are used, pond salt offers nothing but positive benefits!

Pond salt was first used for killing parasites and protecting koi carp during winter months before there was a large selection of pond treatments on the market. In winter, fish’s metabolisms slow down and their body functions decrease greatly. So the salt that they naturally produce in warmer water begins to falter. Small amounts of pond salt helps koi fish bear the winter by replacing the salts that they naturally produce themselves in the spring/summer time.
