PondCare Algaefix will not harm aquatic pond plants, koi or goldfish. It does not cause cloudiness, alter the pH, or add harmful copper to your backyard pond. Does not expire.
Note: Do not use with: Shrimp, Crabs, Lobsters, Crustaceans or Snails.
Directions For Use: It is a violation of Federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. For synthetically lined pond and fountain use only, where all water is contained without any outflow.
Add 1 teaspoonful for every 50 gallons of pond/fountain water or 1/2 cup for every 1,200 gallons. Thoroughly mix into pond/fountain by adding near the pump outflow, waterfall, or aeration device. Can be mixed in a bucket of pond/fountain water and dispersed evenly around the pond/fountain. Repeat application every 3 days until algae is controlled. Be prepared to siphon out dead filamentous algae. 8 ounces treats up to 2,400 gallons. 16 ounces treats up to 4,800 gallons. 32 ounces treats up to 9,800 gallons. 64 ounces treats up to 19,200 gallons. 1 gallon treats up to 38,400 gallons. 2.5 gallons treats up to 96,000 gallons.
Once algal growth is under control, add one dose per week. Weekly treatments will control algal growth and reduce pond/fountain maintenance. CAUTION: Do not use with freshwater crustaceans, including shrimp, crabs and lobsters.
Warm Weather Caution: Before using PondCare Algaefix, make certain that the pond has vigorous aeration, i.e., a fountain, waterfall, or aeration device to avoid fish loss due to low oxygen levels. When algae is controlled and removed by the filter or settle to the bottom of the pond, the oxygen level may drop to harmful levels if adequate aeration is not provided. Therefore, when using PondCare Algaefix during warm weather and high water temperatures, vigorous, 24 hour aeration is required. Do not shut off pond pumps and aeration devices at night.
