Super Concentrated Pond Dye can stain you or anything it touches when it comes out of the bottle as you may have seen in our other videos and may have already experienced your selves. A little soft scrub with bleach will help to get it off of you or it will wear off in time. Once it is in the water and distributed the pond dye does not stain as you’ll see in the video below.
We’ve used pond dye for years now and can’t wait to get it into the pond every spring, at least when the major snow melt is finished and hope no huge rain storms hit. If they do hit you’ll need to add a little more to get the color back. The recommended dose is a quart per acre for up to 6′ deep of color, use 2 quarts to have a darker and deeper color. In our little 7′ deep pond we use about a 1/3 of the quart and colors up nicely.
In the video below you’ll see a slide show of the dye being pulled toward the diffuser a before and after of the pond dye in the pond and wildlife splashing about in the pond and not turning blue.
