This ultra-concentrated formula is made for lakes and large ponds.

The use of fish-safe dye is a common part of an overall pond maintenance program. Apply this formula as needed, all year long starting early in the spring to improve the appearance of pond water.

Available in 3-colors:
* Orb-3 Blue Lagoon provides a "natural blue" color.
* Orb-3 Black Orchid offers a dark, reflective tint.
* Orb-3 Moonlight creates a dark blackish-blue appearance.

This nontoxic and harmless pond dye is for use in pond and lakes. Waters can be used for swimming and irrigation once product is dispersed and it is compatible with most aquatic algaecides and herbicides on the market.


One quart treats one acre of water 3' to 6' deep

For best results add to multiple spots around the edges of the pond or use in conjunction with aeration. Add additional amounts as needed to maintain desired color due to dilution.

Will not stain fish, plants, wildlife, or surfaces when used as directed and once dispersed.

Not for use in potable water sources.

Chlorinated water will cause fading, requiring higher dosages or more frequent treatments.

FAQ

Which color should I choose? + -

This is largely a personal preference, but Moonlight is the most popular choice. If birds are a problem, the black dye is the best choice as it will create a reflective surface that will hide fish from the birds' vision.

Do you have a formula for smaller ponds, fountains, and water gardens? + -

Yes. Part number ZSC-PD16 ships in 1-Pint bottles. Each pint treats 16,000 gallons of water.

Black dye

I told my son the other weekend, that I wish I could add the amount of dye to really turn the lake black. How much is that? I am not sure, but this year 15 gallons was not near enough. First it was non-stop rain, then it turned Hor and dry, then we've seen more algae bloom. Maybe next year, out budget can put as much dye as it take to accomplish my goal. I can hope can't I?
