Review these tips when treating your pond


Always shake well before using.

Do Not Freeze

Immediately replace cap on bottles after use.

Store opened and unopened product in a dry, cool area.

Do not store product in direct sunlight.

Using the standard dosage several times a week is more effective than using an excessive amount in one treatment.

Double check the pond volume when determining dosage. Under dosing because of incorrect volume will reduce the effectiveness of the biological treatment. Click here to Auto Calculate pond volume or gallons in your pond.

UltraViolet light will affect the performance of biological products. Click here for more information on Using UV lights with UltraClear.

Biological products are not as quick acting as chemicals. It may take between two and four weeks for the biological product to work. See Bacteria versus Enzymes versus Chemical.

A partial improvement (such as browning or algae sinking to the bottom) in the clarity of the water is an indication that the biological product is working, but may not be a strong enough dosage. In these cases, an increase in the weekly dosage or going to a more frequent dosing rate (ie, 2-3 times a week) may be required.

Fertilizers, run-off containing fertilizers or pesticides and other chemicals added to a pond will affect the balance of the pond and the performance of the biological product used for treating the pond.

Check your ph periodically. The pH of the pond is a vital element that needs to be controlled. Extreme pH will make it difficult to bring the pond in balance for successful treatment.

Shallow ponds often require a stronger dosage or more frequent treatment at the standard dosage.
