How does Hydra Quartz Work and How to Use:
Blanket weed is a widespread nuisance for most pond keepers. Characteristically blanket weed spreads in the form of long filaments and quickly covers the water surface with a woven filamentous growth.
Blanket weed grows fast under sunshine, especially in ornamental ponds with fish. Pond keepers over feed the fish causing additional nutrients (nitrates and ammonia) to leach into the ponds in the form of uneaten fish food and excessive fish excrement. If left unchecked, blanket weed may cause severe oxygen depletion in a water body along with creating stress for the larger fish by hindering their movement.
Pond keepers sometimes pull out the live blanket weed manually; this results in shedding of numerous spores within the water. The spores eventually grow and blanket weed returns in rather severe form covering even larger water surface.
Hydra Quartz is proven as a highly effective treatment to get rid of blanketweed. Product constituents include natural minerals and sequestrants. Hydra Quartz starves the blanket weed by absorbing the nutrients on which the weed survives. The growth dies off normally within two to three days, after which it could be safely removed without the risk of releasing spores into the water.
Hydra Quartz is completely biodegradable and does not remain in the water for long but reverts to oxygen and hydrogen within 48 hours.
What is Blanket weed?
The term blanket weed is used to describe various strains of filamentous algae. Blanket weed may appear in a pond as fine wispy hair like growth on the sides of the ponds. Blanket weed may infest the pond as thick and candy floss looking mass floating freely on the water surface or choking the water plants. Similar to green water causing algae, blanket weed also spreads quickly in sun exposed ponds with nutrient rich water. Blanket weed are unsightly and may choke plants and fish.

I've recently drained, cleaned all the algae from the liner, filter, pump etc & refilled with app 50% of the water removed from the pond & 50% tap water. & reinstalled the goldfish, but from past experience the pond weed soon reappears. So would it be wise to install the treatment now, or wait 'till the blessed stuff shows itself again? Thank you.
Hydra Quartz removes blanket weed, if there is no weed in pond then product might not respond.
Algae can re-appear anytime when there are favorable conditions. Apply Quartz as soon as blanket weed appears.
You can try precautionary majors to stop blanket weed to re-appear such as do not feed fishes
much, protect pond from sun light or else you can try our dyes for the pond which blocks
sunlight and will control algae growth.

my blanket weed does not go across the top of the pond but clings to the side very thick and spreads along the bottom of the pond, do i just put the Hydra Quartz around the edge of the pool ?????
Yes, simply apply where ever the blanket weed is.
can I use the blanketweed treatment & duckweed treatment together?
I bought a bigger pack of Hydra Quartz, but the algae/weed disappeared with relatively smaller amount of the product. Would the remaining of Hydra Quartz work with similar efficiency later? What is the shelf life of the product?
Store the remaining of your Hydra Quartz in closed container, above 5°C and use later whenever reapplication of the product is required. Hydra Quartz has a long shelf life of three years.
