How does Aquashade Work?
Aquashade blocks out or filters certain sunlight spectrum (red-orange and blue-violet) that contribute to algae and underwater aquatic plant growth.
Aquashade works on dephs of 2 feet or more, so floating plants like lillies would not be affected.
- Aquashade is a concentrated liquid formulation for use in contained lakes and ponds.
- Contains a special blend of blue and yellow dyes to block out specific light rays critical to photosynthesis.
- Aquashade is EPA registered for aquatic plant growth control.
- No restrictions on swimming, fishing, irrigation or stock watering
- Aquashade is non-corrosive and will not stain bathing suits, fountain surfaces or other water features at use dilution.
- Aquashade leaves water a sparkling blue color.
|Pro Tips||1 gallon of AquaShade treats 4 acre-feet of water. To calculate how many acre feet your pond has, you need to determine your acreage and average depth. Example: If your pond is 1 acre ( 208 x 208 ft ) and the average depth is 8 feet , 1 x 8 = 8 acre-feet. Since one gallon yields enough for 4 acre feet, you would need 2 gallons for accurate coverage on the initial treatment. For ongoing maintenance you can cut this rate in half until the end of growing season.|

HOW MUCH TO USE:
Length (ft.) x Width (ft.) x Avg. Depth (ft.) x 7.5 = Gallons
Avg. Depth can be determined by taking a number of depth readings and calculating the average or estimated as 1/2 the maximum depth in evenly contoured bodies of water
