Proactive Pond Management
Stop excessive sunlight to improve water quality and protect pond fish from heat and predators. Using a pond dye allows fish to hide from predators above, plus it keeps the water cooler all summer, allowing the fish to breathe easier. Apply once every 4-8 weeks or as needed to keep your pond looking great all year.

Preventive treatments such as water clarifiers, muck reducers, and pond dye can help reduce excessive nutrients and improve water quality and are a key step in the Airmax Ecosystem, a simple 3 step approach to pond and lake management. The Airmax Ecosystem is the industry-leading method to achieve a clean, clear, thriving aquatic ecosystem. Learn more about the Airmax Ecosystem.
