Hydra Blue Water Dye adds natural and vibrant shine to the water body, transforming a normal water front to an aesthetically appealing view in your garden or outdoors. Apart from hugely enhancing the beauty of ponds or lakes, pond colorants also inhibit photosynthesis process of weeds and algae causing existing algae to die and hindering newer growth. The water bodies coloured using pond blue dye retain colour for months with re-application usually not required before 3 months. Use Hydra Blue Water Dye towards the end of February to stop algae infestation at the very beginning of the season.
Hydra Blue Water Dye is ideal for use by fisheries, angling clubs and in water traps on the golf courses. These water bodies are often situated near the fields that receive fertilizer treatment. The water runoff from the fields when reaches lakes or ponds provide perfect breeding ground for algae blooms and green water. Using a blue lake dye prevents algae to use nutrients by hindering photosynthesis due to deflection of the UV rays right at the water surface. Algae and weeds that usually grow inside the water are unable to make food in the absence of sunlight below the water and thus do not flourish.
The reflective property of dyed water greatly increases, giving lakes or ponds a vibrant look and stunning background for the ornamental aquatic plants.

I have a beautiful garden with a stone water feature/ a fountain which aereates the pond. Would pond dye stain the fountain too?
Water dyed with Hydra water dyes does not stain you, the pond liners, fish, plant leaves or animals. However the concentrated product should be handled with precaution using protectives gloves.
Someone advised me to use pond colourant to keep away algae and weeds. How adding colour to the water help to prevent algae?
Pond dyes not only give a beautiful finish to the water body but also block sun rays from entering deep inside the pond. Most algae and weeds are submerged in the water and preventing the sunlight (essential for photosynthesis) starves the existing growth and prevents new development. Pond dyes also hide your precious fish from predators such as heron or visiting cats and pets.
Would the dyed water leave marks on my skin if I come in contact with the water?
