PureBLUE Pond Dye limits the amount of sunlight in a pond!

OrganicPond pureBLUE dye is easy to use. It comes in a gallon container. Shake the gallon up well and pour in 3-4 places along the shoreline around the pond. Natural water movement will disperse the dye in 3-24 hours.
Use one Gallon per acre with an average depth of 5 feet. This represents 1.65 Million gallons of water. If you live in a temperate climate use pond dye all year round. In colder climates use pond dye as early in the spring as possible, just as your ice is thawing. Prevent early sunshine and spring germination.

The frequency of Pond Dye use is dependent on a couple of factors such as a change in water volume, or a loss of water. If you get a big rain or pump water into the pond, add more dye to account for the water volume change. If you shed water, plan on applying more frequently to account for pond dye loss.

Pond Dye biodegrades over time via sunlight, without water volume changes, plan on applying pond dye every 4-8 weeks.

OrganicPond pureBLUE and pureBLACK Pond Dyes are safe for ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife and the environment.

As an alternative to fertilization, pond dyes can be used to reduce light penetration into the water column. Pond dyes block the wavelengths of light that are necessary for photosynthesis. The upper two feet of the water column remain productive and provide food for fish. Application rates depend on the volume of water to be treated. Treatments usually are effective for six months or occasionally longer, depending upon the rate of water loss from the pond and the amount of fresh water entering the pond. If dense growths of algae or other weeds are present, mechanical removal or an herbicide treatment may be needed before applying a pond dye.
