Directions for Use:
It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in manner inconsistent with its labeling. For synthetically lined pond and fountain use only, where all water is contained without any outflow.
WARM WEATHER CAUTION: Before using, make certain that the pond has vigorous aeration, i.e. a fountain or aeration device to avoid fish loss due to low oxygen levels. When algae is controlled and removed by the filter or settles to the bottom of the pond, the oxygen level may drop to harmful levels if adequate aeration is not provided. In warm weather, pond water carries much less oxygen. Therefore, when using during warm weather and high water temperatures, vigorous, 24-hour aeration is required for the duration of the treatment. Do not shut off pond pumps and aeration devices at night.
To ensure accurate dosing, determine pond volume before use. Add 1 teaspoon (5 ml) for each 50 US gallons of pond/fountain water or 1/4 cup (60 ml) for each 600 gallons of pond or fountain water. Thoroughly mix into pond water by adding near the pump outflow, waterfall, or aeration device. It can be mixed in a bucket of pond/fountain water and dispersed evenly around the pond. Repeat dose every 3 days until algae is controlled. Be prepared to siphon out dead filamentous algae. Once algae growth is under control, add one dose per week. Weekly treatments will control algal growth and reduce pond maintenance.
Caution: Do not use with freshwater crustaceans, including: shrimp, crabs, and lobsters.
Your pond is a self-contained bio-habitat that seeks to keep itself in balance. A properly designed pond will be nearly self-maintaining. Learn what you can do to maintain a healthy balanced pond environment.
"Bringing nature to your own backyard" means more than filling a pond with water and adding plants and fish. It means bringing nature's methods of balancing a wetland ecosystem into your backyard as well. Learn how to learn from nature.
Incorporate UV sterilizers as an invaluable tool in an algae control regimen in your pond. As water flows through the UV unit, free-floating algae are exposed to ultraviolet light and flocculate. Find out how this helps control algae.
