Additional applications will be needed at 1 to 4 week intervals as dyes are broken down by sunlight.

There is a monumental pool that I am trying to cure the algae overgrowth in. This pool is strictly used as a decorative piece to the campus. (no aquatic life or occasional dips) My question is will this product do the trick for the job? Do I have to worry about the dye affecting the concrete walls? Do I need the pump going when pouring solution in?
A shopper on Sep 14, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will stain porous surfaces, but will control the algae growth. 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.

I Love Aquashade
First-time user of Aquashade. Love the color that it brings out of the water and the fact that it reflects the sun. Feels so good to have a clean pond again.
