For Use In
For use in: Natural and Manmade contained lakes and ponds (ornamental, recreational, fi sh
rearing or fi sh farming) with little or no outfl ow of water, golf course ponds, and watering turf. ,
HOW TO APPLY
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.
In freezing climates, Aquashade may be poured onto the ICE in a 3 foot (1 meter) diameter circle it will melt
a hole and disperse underneath. (Be certain ice conditions are safe before making application.)
1. Calculate total volume of your water body into Gallons (Liters) or Acre-Feet (Cubic Meters): Length (ft.) x Width (ft.) x Avg. Depth (ft.) x 7.5 = Gallons Length (ft.) x Width (ft.) x Avg. Depth (ft.) / 43,560 = Acre-Feet Avg.
Depth can be determined by taking a number of depth readings and calculating the average or estimated as ½ the maximum depth in evenly contoured bodies of water. 2. Based upon water volume, determine dosage rate from the chart below.
3. Apply in season maintenance dosages, as needed, to restore loss of color due to dilution or dye degrada

WHERE TO USE
For use in: Natural and Manmade contained lakes and ponds (ornamental, recreational, fish bearing or
fish farming) with little or no outflow of water, golf course ponds, and watering turf.
Aquashade contains a blend of blue and yellow dyes designed to absorb specific wavelengths of light critical
to plant photosynthesis. Treated water will retain a light aqua-blue tint following application.
Either allow at least one hour for Aquashade to disperse throughout the water body before using water
for swimming, irrigation or livestock watering or avoid pouring concentrate within 50 ft. of these intake/use
areas, allowing dye to self-disperse into them.
