Lakes, ponds, decorative water features, and other impounded bodies of water with limited outflow. Chlorinated water will cause accelerated fading, requiring more frequent treatments or higher dosages. DO NOT apply this product directly to drinking water.


Determine the proper dosage rate by calculating the water volume (acre-feet) of body of water to be treated. Simply multiply the Length (ft) x Width (ft) x Average depth (ft) and then divide it by 43,560. This will give you the water volume in acre-feet.

For volume in acre-feet:

Length (ft) x Width(ft) x Average Depth (ft)


Use .25 gallons (.95 L) of this product for each acre-foot of water as determined by your calculations. When used at the recommended dosage rate, treated water will not stain exposed surfaces or harm fish, waterfowl, pets, or wildlife. See label for calculations and rate in meters.

  • Pour from the container near the shoreline. Complete dispersion of this product should occur within hours after treatment, depending on the volume and movement of water treated.
  • Additional amounts of this product can be added as needed to maintain desired coloration following rainfall, dilution, or water exchange.
  • Allow several hours for this product to disperse before swimming, irrigation, or fishing.
