Collection: Pond Dye

Reduce light penetration into the water column. People everywhere love Organic Pond™ proprietary blend of sun-limiting pond colorants crafted to transform your pond overnight! When the sun cannot reach the bottom of your pond, the potential for weed and algae growth is reduced. 

Pond dye is an integral tool in keeping a pond healthy and safe for people, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife and the environment. It blocks the wavelengths of light that are necessary for photosynthesis. The upper two feet of the water column remain productive and provide food for fish.

pureBLACK™ offers a reflective natural-deep black tint. It is excellent at creating a surface reflection around golf greens and scenic backdrops. We use multiple dye colors mixed together to develop the black dye. As a result, the black dye is approximately 25% stronger than the blue dye. Furthermore, we start with a denser product so our black dye should tint a one acre pond 4ft. deep for 4-6 weeks.

pureBLUE™ pond dye colors your pond a brilliant natural blue (not a light tropical tint.) We manufacture pureBLUE using the densest, commercially available dye on the market. When finished, it is up to 20% more powerful than other products on the market. One gallon will dye a one-acre pond 4ft. deep depending on flow through, etc. for 4-6 weeks.

Aquashade® Aquatic Plant Growth Control, primarily effective in water deeper than 2ft., shades specific portions of the sunlight spectrum required by underwater aquatic plant and algae growth. It is a blend of blue and yellow dyes that retains a light aqua-blue tint following application. Floating plants, such as lilies, are unaffected by this product when they have already reached the surface. Aquashade EPA Registered Pond Dye.

Pond Dyes are Easy to Use
Shake the gallon container well and pour in 3-4 places along the shoreline around the pond. Natural water movement will disperse the dye in 3-24 hours. Use one Gallon per acre with an average depth of 4 feet. This represents over a million gallons of water. If you live in a temperate climate, use pond dye all year round. In colder climates, use pond dye as early in the spring as possible, just as your ice is thawing, to prevent early sunshine penetration during spring germination.

Application rates depend upon the volume of water to be treated and factors such as a change in water volume, or a loss of water. If there's a big rain or you're pumping water into the pond, add more dye to account for the water volume change. If water is being shed, plan on applying more frequently to account for pond dye loss. Pond Dye biodegrades over time via sunlight, without water volume changes, plan on applying pond dye every 4-8 weeks. If dense growths of algae or other weeds are present, mechanical removal or an herbicide treatment may be needed before applying a pond dye.
