Pond Dye Limits Sun Exposure & Protects Fish

Pond dye isn't just about looks – it shields your pond or lake from excessive sunlight, safeguarding fish and maintaining a thriving ecosystem. Sunlight can fuel excessive plant and algae growth. Pond dye blocks certain light wavelengths, curbing weed growth.

With pond dye, fish are less visible to predators, granting fish the chance to escape harm. Dye also helps regulate water temperature, preserving adequate oxygen levels for fish during hot summer months.

Enjoy a pond transformation without any hassle! Pour directly into the water at various points along the pond's edge, and within hours, the dye will naturally disperse, revealing a beautifully colored pond.

How to Apply

Pour one quart of Pond Dye per acre 4-6 feet deep in several spots along the pond's edge – no mixing required. One quart is equivalent to one gallon of other pond and lake colorants. The dye will disperse itself throughout the pond within several hours of application.

When to Apply

Dye for ponds is a proactive approach to reducing many common problems caused by excessive sunlight. Pond Dye helps cool the water in the summer, and it can improve the appearance of a pond almost immediately. Water temperature has no effect on Pond Dye and should be applied monthly or as needed to maintain a true color all season long. Heavy rain and/or intense sunlight may require additional treatments of pond dye. Apply Pond Dye every 4-8 weeks or as needed to maintain the desired color.

Restrictions

Pond Dye may be applied to lakes and ponds used for irrigation and aquaculture. Water treated with Pond Dye may be used for recreation, fishing and other activities immediately after treatment. Safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife and the environment. Do not apply to water that will be used for human consumption. Not for use in small water features, water gardens, or pools.

FAQs

Can I overdose pond dye?

Adding additional dye to your pond or lake will deepen the color, but it will not harm aquatic life or vegetation. Follow the dosage rates listed on the product label. Remember that you can always add more dye, but once it's in the water, only time, evaporation, and rainfall can dilute the color.

Can I just do one application of pond dye?

Pond dyes on average will last between 4-8 weeks, depending on rainfall and intense sunlight. Apply Airmax Pond Dye every 4-8 weeks or as needed to maintain the desired color.

Is pond dye safe to use in a pond used for swimming?

Yes. Water treated with Airmax Pond Dye may be used for recreation, fishing, and other activities immediately after treatment. Safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife, and the environment. Pond Dye may be applied to lakes and ponds used for irrigation and aquaculture.

Will pond dye stain?

If you're concerned about the dye coloring your skin (or your pets) when you swim, don't worry: After 24 hours of being applied to the pond, the dye will not stain. The concentrated form, however, is a different story. It will turn your hands colors, so be sure to wear gloves and work clothes when adding dye to your pond. Once mixed with the water in your pond, pond dye is completely safe for agriculture and irrigation purposes. After treatment, you can use your pond for recreation, fishing, and other activities. It's safe for swimming ponds, as well as watering horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, and wildlife.

Do the darker colors provide more protection?

No, all pond dye colors provide the same protection and are designed to block harmful UV rays from entering the pond. Color choice is a matter of personal preference. Some pond owners even mix colors to create their own custom shade.

Can I use this dye in my small fishpond or water garden?

Pond Dye is formulated for large, acreage-sized ponds and lakes. We do not recommend use in small water features, water gardens, or pools.
