Pond dye helps block UV rays that enter a pond. It is the UV rays that go deep into a pond providing light for photosynthesis required for plant and algae growth. When we use a pond dye, we block some of that light, helping control growth of some algae and some unwanted submerged aquatic plants.
- Filters sunlight and provides an aesthetically pleasing, natural appearance to pond water;
- Keeps water temperature cooler;
- Blocks up to 40% of the sun’s rays to effectively starve the growth of existing algae and formation of new growth;
- Contributes to algae and aquatic weeds reduction in garden ponds & small lakes;
- Easy to apply and lasts 4 to 6 weeks depending on water flow.
With our CanadianPond NATURAL Aquatic Dye, we carefully chose shades of blue and grey, with a touch of black, to give the effect of deep, cool water, that is highly reflective of UV rays while appearing as natural looking as possible.
Think of a deep, cool lake that you would find in the Canadian Shield, and recall how the light reflects off the water surface, onto the moss covered Canadian Shield: this is the effect that CanadianPond NATURAL Dye can have in your pond.
