    Great product

    This product performed exactly as advertised. We only treated half of our pond at a time, according to recommendations, so we will be purchasing another bag very soon. We couldn't be more satisfied as we have tried EVERYTHING to get rid of the horsehair algae problem. This looks as if it will work and does not harm fish nor fowl!

    I've used this product several times and it works best for my pond which is stocked with Koi and Goldfish better than anything else and it doesn't harm them.

    Great Product

    By H on 06/26/2016

    This product works great around edges of pond where algae seems to appear most frequently. The consistency is like table salt. It is easy to distribute and sinks nicely where you throw it, unlike some products I've used that float away and sink where ever. The water temp and sun are important. I didn't give it 5 stars because I'm not sure if it works that well on deep pond floor algae. Could be I'm not using enough. Also wish it worked in cooler temperatures when algae first appears.

    GreenClean Pro better than Cutrine Plus

    By Anonymous on 06/25/2013

    I treated half of one side of my half-acre fish pond with GreenClean Pro and the rest of that side with Cutrine Plus, which is what I had been using for two years. Within two days the results were dramatic; the algae on the rocks was almost gone with GreenClean, but it took another three days for the Cutrine to eliminate the algae. I'm sold! Great stuff.

Questions & Answers

Have a question about this product?
  
Q
I have an 8000 gallon man made pond. How much GreenClean per 1000 gallons? How often can I put it in?

The pond is in the AZ sun much of the day and algae can grow fast. How much should I use as a preventative?

A
The label states for high algae growth you should use between 2 and 10 Tablespoons per 1000 gallons of water.  On the first treatment you would probably want to use the 10 tablespoons per 1000 gallons of water if growth is high.  The label just says to re-treat as needed, just do not re-treat within 48 hours of the last treatment.  Environmental conditions determine how fast the algae re-grows and how often you will need to treat.  The label does state that after you treat initially with the up to 10 tablespoons that for maintenance you should use between 1 and 3 tablespoons per 1000 gallons of water.

we have a natural unlined pond 20ft x 40ft by 2 ft deep and has begun to have string algae we need a product safe for water as it is unlined - can you give me info on if your product will work and how much to use...and how often - we are in Colorado

A
GreenClean Pro Algaecide is safe to use in your unlined pond. You would want to use 1-3 tsp per 1000 gallons water. Your pond appears to have approx. 12000 gallons of water. So, you would use approz. 24 tsp to treat your pond.
