AquaShade Pond Dye

1 gallon treats 1 acre pond 4-6' deep, or 1,960,200 gallons
When to Apply Aquashade:
For best results treat with Aquashade before the plant growing season (Prior to plant germination). Use during season will suppress the rate and extent of underwater growth. Aquashade has less effects in waters less than 2 feet deep and on matured submerged plants.

Pour recommended dose of Aquashade into multiple points around the shoreline of the pond.

Why is Aquashade restricted from shipping to some states?
Aquashade is EPA registered as a treatment to manage weed and algae growth. Because it is registered to manage growth, some states restrict shipment. Aquashade is concentrated food grade colorant. For restricted states, we recommend using Vivid Blue Pond Dye. This is not EPA registered but is also a bright blue pond dye.
