Filter The Sun With Pond Dye
Pure Blue Pond Dye tints your pond a natural blue and helps to filter sunlight. The effectiveness of Pure Blue Pond Dye depends the time of year you apply the product, watershed, dosage rates and maintenance schedule.
Apply dye early in the spring. Maintain a deep blue tint all season long. Water exchange is also critical, so if you shed water, you will have to re-treat. Getting the color right is fairly easy as Organic Pond bases our dosage rate on water volume, one gallon will treat 5 Acre Feet or a one acre pond with an average depth of 5 Feet. The key is maintaining the color throughout the season. If you see the color fading-add more dye.
Pure Blue Pond Dye is easy to use, simply pour around the edge of the pond and natural water movements will disperse the dye in 24 hours. Once dispersed the dye will not stain you, your pets or your fish.
