Cutrine Granular – 12 lbs or 30 lbs.
Cutrine Granular is a 3.7% granular chelated copper algaecide ideally suited for treatment of bottom growing algae including Chara and Nitella and spot treatments along docks, beaches, boat launches, and fishing areas. This formulation helps control growth before it reaches the surface. Cutrine Plus Granular is registered for use in lakes, potable water reservoirs, farm and fish ponds, fish hatcheries, and golf course water hazards. Treated water may be used for swimming, fishing, drinking, livestock watering, or irrigation immediately after treatment. Spread as evenly as possible over treatment area at a rate of 1 pound per 750 spuare feet or 60 pounds per surface acre.
Once contact is established, CUTRINE Granular begins to work immediately to break down the algaes cellular structure and interrupt the ability to photosynthesize food. Controls Planktonic Algae in 24 to 48 hours, Filamentous Algae in 3 to 4 days.
Early treatment when growth first appears or begins to create a nuisance will reduce the amount of CUTRINE granular you will need. Early treatment will also reduce the amount of dead growth. Only treat 1/3 to 1/2 of your pond at a time to prevent oxygen depletion.

What are Pond Microbes?
The word microbes can encompass an array of things. It composes a collection of bacteria, protists, and more. When it comes to ponds, there are good and bad bacteria. You will want to promote good bacteria for your pond so they can destroy bad bacteria. One type of bad bacteria can be found on the pond’s surface, while others accumulate at the bottom. Pond microbes, like Outdoor Water Solutions Bacteria Packs, can help to rid your pond of bad bacteria. Let’s go over five benefits that you can get from adding pond microbes to your pond.
- Control Algae: Although some algae are necessary for an optimal pond ecosystem, too much algae bloom can also be bad. It can make the pond look dirty and even suffocate the good bacteria. Adding pond microbes can keep algae levels at a balanced point. In the end, you are sure to get clear water by using pond microbes.
- Controls Pond Muck: Pond muck is a combination of excess nutrients, algae, and bad bacteria. The good bacteria you add to the pond will break down any excess nutrients that can cause pond muck. Nutrients are also necessary to keep your pond thriving. However, any type of excess nutrients in a pond will do more harm than good. Pond muck can begin to grow within just a few days if it is not adequately controlled. Using pond microbes will also help to keep pond muck at bay.
