DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Apply Aquashade as pre-emergent before the growing season to achieve best results. May be applied directly onto ice cover, (where applicable).

HOW TO APPLY

Measure out required amount of Aquashade into a pourable container or apply directly from the product container by pouring around shoreline water and/or in offshore areas from a boat. Aquashade will mix throughout the water on its own, however, more widespread application or aeration devices/fountains will provide quicker dispersion.
In freezing climates, Aquashade may be poured onto the ICE in a 3 foot (1 meter) diameter circle it will melt a hole and disperse underneath. (Be certain ice conditions are safe before making application.)

APPLICATION RATES

1. Calculate total volume of your water body into Gallons (Liters) or Acre-Feet (Cubic Meters):

  • Length (ft.) x Width (ft.) x Avg. Depth (ft.) x 7.5 = Gallons
    Length (ft.) x Width (ft.) x Avg. Depth (ft.) / 43,560 = Acre-Feet

Avg. Depth can be determined by taking a number of depth readings and calculating the average or estimated as 1/2 the maximum depth in evenly contoured bodies of water.

2. Based upon water volume, determine dosage rate from the chart below.

3. Apply in season maintenance dosages, as needed, to restore loss of color due to dilution or dye degradation.
