Symbio Aquablue is a highly concentrated blue vegetable dye which provides a very cost effective means of reducing algal growth whilst creating a more aesthetically pleasing water
APPLICATION: Symbio Aquablue should be added to ponds and lakes at several different locations to ensure even distribution of the
product. It is advisable to wear rubber gloves during application to protect the hands from staining.
• Reduces algal growth
• Reduces the growth of submerged aquatic plants
• Enhances the appearance of water features
• Made from a harmless vegetable dye
• Will not affect irrigation water quality
• Measuring chamber allows accurate product dosage
• Complements the effects of Blue Water sachets
DOSAGE: Symbio Aquablue is typically applied
at a rate of 1 litre per 5000m3 – 7500m3 of water (1.1 million – 1.7 million gallons).
For a deeper blue colour, AquaBlue can be applied at a higher dose as required.
When adding a higher dosage, it is recommended that the AquaBlue be added a little at a time and allowed to disperse completely until the desired colour intensity is achieved.
The colouration will remain for several weeks and can be topped-up as required.
NOTES: Symbio Aquablue will not stain birds or fish when used at the recommended rates although it is advisable to avoid dosing the
product close to swimming waterfowl.
Symbio Aquablue will not disrupt fishing, swimming or irrigation once the product has dispersed throughout the entire water body.
Symbio Aquablue should only be used in closed water systems. Any water with a significant outflow should not be treated, as the dye
will quickly travel downstream
If SWALLOWED Rinse Mouth, Do not induce vomiting
IF ON SKIN Gently wash with plenty of soap and water
IF IN EYES Rinse cautiously with water for several minutes
MEASURING WATER VOLUME
Water volume is measured by multiplying the surface area of the pond by its depth. If all measurements are made in
metres your result will be in m3
Example: A rectangular pond with sides 2m and 4m in length and with a depth of 60cm will have a volume of: 2m x 4m x 0.6m = 4.8m3
A round pond is more difficult to calculate but can be measured in the following way:
Measure the distance from the middle to the edge of the pond (the radius), square this result and then multiply by 3.14.
Then multiply this result by the depth.
Example: A round pond with a radius of 2.5 metres and a depth of 60cm will have a volume of: 2.5 x 2.5 = 6.25
6.25 x 3.14 = 19.63 19.63 x 0.6 = 11.8m3
