      Immediately. Then you just need to dose for the full volume of the pond every 48 hours.

      OK just read directions again and it said to lower in emergency use 4 times the dose.

      If you're testing with the drops you won't see any change. The drops only detect both NH3 (bad) and NH4.
      The conditioner ionizes the ammonia to NH4 so it makes it less harmful, but doesn't remove it. That's why
      the drops still show ammonia.

      OK that makes sense what about nitrite it is still elevated?

      Honestly I've never used it with a nitrite reading, so I don't know for sure. I've just used salt.
      But I know that salt doesn't reduce the nitrite but prevents nitrites effects... I suspect the Safe/Prime
      does the same thing and doesn't actually remove it.
