Aquashade® is an Aquatic Plant Growth Control that is EPA registered to control aquatic plant and algae growth. Therefore, shading a pond with Aquashade will help to suppress underwater growth when applied early and maintained throughout the growing season.
In other words, AQUASHADE Liquid concentrated dyes filter sunlight and create sparkling blue water. Controls submersed weeds and algae in ponds, decorative water features, and other impounded bodies of water. Above all, filters sunlight inhibiting photosynthesis. Moveover, it gives water a crisp, clear, aqua-blue color.
In addition, use AQUASHADE Liquid in spring and early summer before growth begins. Less effective control occurs when growth is within 2 feet of the surface.
Above all, you may need a permit to use Aquashade in certain states. Use 1 gallon of AQUASHADE Liquid to treat 1.00 acre at 4 feet deep. To apply AQUASHADE Liquid, pour directly into the water. Dyes disperse within several hours by natural water movement. You should treat the entire pond volume. Use where there is a minimal inflow and outflow of water. You may need additional applications at 1 to 4 week intervals as dyes are broken down by sunlight.
*Consult Label for Exact Doses, Additional Restrictions & Important Application Directions. You may need to do multiple applications.
Water treated with Aquashade should not be used in water designated for human consumption. Apply the dye at a calm period during the day. If you do get some of the dye on your skin or clothing it can be easily removed with a little bleach or anything that contains some chlorine or ammonia. For your own peace of mind never store in carpeted areas as it takes a long – long – long time to get out if ever do to its concentration.
