Airmax Black DyeMond 4X Concentrated Pond Dye



Turn brown or gray water into beautiful reflections that blend into the landscape by adding Black DyeMond Pond Dye. This shade creates a mirrored surface that reflects the surrounding trees and natural rocky landscape, making it a popular choice for natural ponds in wooded areas. Its powerful 4x concentrated formula allows each quart of Pond Dye to treat like an entire gallon of competitive brands! One quart treats up to 1 surface acre, 4-6 feet deep.

Proactive Pond Management

Stop excessive sunlight to improve water quality and protect pond fish from heat and predators. Using a pond dye allows fish to hide from predators above. It keeps the water cooler all summer, allowing the fish to breathe easier. Apply once every 4-8 weeks or as needed to keep your pond looking great all year.

Preventive treatments such as water clarifiers, muck reducers, and pond dye can help reduce excessive nutrients and improve water quality. These are a crucial step in the Airmax Ecosystem, a simple 3-step approach to pond and lake management. The Airmax Ecosystem is the industry-leading method to achieve a clean, thriving aquatic ecosystem. Learn more about the Airmax Ecosystem.
