Hydra Blue Water Dye adds natural and vibrant sheen 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 The water bodies coloured using pond blue dye retain colour for months with re-application usually not required before 3 months.
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 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 aerates the pond. Would pond dye stain the fountain too?

Works a treat, I have had lots of problems in the past with blanket weed but after using the dye the blanket weed has been kept at bay. Anyone having problems with blanket weed should use this product. Just dont get it on your hands or on anything else as it stains forever.

"I thought I'd done everything right with this powder - I read the reviews telling me to be careful, I worked out cubic measurements of pond water, donned plastic gloves and apron and then proceeded to put into pond. Bag came with plastic gloves and a scoop. I carefully loaded scoop, made sure there was no wind and then carefully sprinkled on edge of pond. Then watched as the water turned deep turquoise and the pond edging turned blue where invisible amounts of powder blew back. I had to rush to get the stones cleaned before they stained for good and then saw my gloves, broom, bucket, shoes and water butt and clothes turn blue when moisture hit the tiny spots as well. VERY powerful stuff and it was obvious that a scoop was just too much powder.
Still, very, very effective against the blanketweed which had nearly taken over in a large pond in the house we have just bought.
Just seen baby fish in there as well so the colouring has not affected them.
Very pleased with powder for the price and after it dies down a little bit I'm sure the colour will be lovely - I will just ensure that I put less in next time."

"We dug our pond, lined it and then filled it with water and put a bit of this blue dye in and it started to look like a little blue lagoon straight away. Only thing I would be careful of is we have white stones in the middle of our pond and some of them have turned a nice hint of blue. They look good still but be careful when you put the dye in as it does colour whatever it touches. do not use it on a windy day or you're asking for trouble

Perfect, doesn't harm the fish as instructions clear, it works well on a number of ponds at Arundel Castle where its used!

"I guess this is intended more for enormous commercial/public pond use. We have two ponds linked by a watercourse. The total capacity is about 5500 litres (just over 1000 gallons. I was a bit doubtful about the dosage, but decided to go for the upper end of 1:1,000,000.
i.e. 5ml, or one teaspoon of the powder.
The ponds are now a pleasant blue, which masks the plant baskets, the pumps, and the pipework, but unless the fish are in the top 20cm of the water, their colours can't really be seen. This is not a problem for me, but potential buyers should be aware.
The water in the pools through the watercourse have a blue tint, but the flowing water seems almost clear (i.e. with the proper concentration, it doesn't end up as blue soup)
One quick warning. As implied, the dye is extremely powerful. It IS supplied with protective gloves, but if any dye is on them, don't remove them with bare hands..."

This really does what the blurb suggests. I would repeat what one reviewer stated 'make sure you wear plastic gloves, when handling' (Posted on 15/05/2014)
Safe to Use. The ingredients of this substance are not harmful to my fishes. Try it and love it yourself. (Posted on 31/12/2013)
"When I used the dye, I put too much in making my pond a very deep blue. After doing a partial water change as Hydra suggested it looks much better. You don't need to use very much at all, next time I'd put half of what I thought in first then add some more. Very pleased with the result in the end.
