Pond & Lake Q & A
Q: How do you turn a one acre pond blue in color? My wife has fish in it and wants the blue tint? – Scott of Mississippi
A: Turning your pond a blue color is a great way to not only to provide your pond with a beautiful blue shade, but also will reduce the amount of sunlight that penetrates through the pond. Surprisingly enough, just one quart of Nature’s Blue™ Pond Dye will shade a one acre pond (43,560 sq. ft.) with an average depth of 4′-6′. I would use one quart, wait 24 hours and evaluate. If you would like a deeper color add another 1/2 quart. Also, with Nature’s Blue™ Pond Dye, there are no water use restrictions and it is safe for fish, birds, pets, horses, livestock and wildlife.
If you are more into beautiful reflections and a richer tone instead of the blue shade, I would recommend Black DyeMond™ Pond Dye.
