Healthy Ponds® Reflection (Black) Pond Water Colorant –17.6 oz. Pourable Granules – Treats up to 1.7 million gallons


Product Description

Pond water colorants are essential once water clarity has been achieved from the use of Healthy Ponds products. Healthy Ponds natural black aquatic dye will effectively shade the pond and limit sunlight penetration, reducing unwanted weed growth and development of algae. Safe for fish, plants, pets and people, Healthy Ponds colorants contain no sulfates or dispersion aids, and are made from the same certifiable food quality dyes used by famous, name brand candy manufacturers in their brilliantly colored hard-shell candy coatings. This granular algecide comes in an easy-access, resealable container, allowing you to scoop or pour the needed amount of dye for your pond. Within 24 hours of applying the Healthy Ponds Reflection (Black) Pond Water Colorant, the pond will take on a beautiful appearance, and help make your Healthy Ponds® AquaSpherePRO® more effective.
