Using the Concentrated Powder Packets:
Each packet is 4 ounces and each packet will treat a ¼ acre pond, 4 to 8 feet deep depending on water quality.
Once the Packet is in the water do not pick it back up again. Yes it is worse than splashing concentrated liquid dye on yourself.
Let’s say your pond is close to a 1/2 acre. I would start with using two packets. If you do have moving water, from an inlet I would drop one in at that area to help distribute the dye out into the pond but if there is no water movement throw both packets out to the center of the pond. Or if it is windy drop the packet in where it will have time to dissolve by time it gets to the other side of the pond. It will take a while to dissolve, if you really wanted you could poke the packet with a stick from shore but don’t pick it up by hand. The powder is very fine and can be blown on to you by a little breeze.
Please allow at least 24 hours for the dye to mix into the pond. It should do this automatically with a breeze and the water movement from heating by day and cooling by night. Once the dye has colored the water you should be good until the next rain storm when the dye is washed out little by little.
If you do lose some dye but still have color in the pond, then toss in another packet to darken up the pond again. And do the same with the fourth packets if the rain continues or when you need to darken the pond. This is an example for a 1/4 are pond using our jar of four 4 ounce packets. With our bucket of 16 four ounce packets you’ll have plenty to do larger ponds, and ave on the initial cost.
