#70428 To be honest John I’ve not used it for yonks now ( in the pond ) but think it’s a great tool to have in your cupboard and as all medications used for specific problems and not thrown in the pond nilly Willie . Virkon Aquatic is after all a disinfectant and has it’s uses I know quite a few koi keepers who use it as a maintenance routine
Also very good to sterilise nets and bowls etc often used at koi shows for this very reason in strong doses

#70435 As Ged says.

Why knock your filters back every month when you don't need to? It doesn't differentiate between good and bad bacteria.
