PHOSCLEAR® - Buffered aluminum sulfate water treatment for effective phosphate control and improved water clarity
Alum is best applied at 25 to 50 PPM concentration. This equates to 0.25 lbs (1/2 cup) of product per 1000 gallons of water.
For example, a 5000 gallon pond would use 2 ½ cups (5 X ½) per treatment.
Phosclear® is available in 4 lbs plastic jars or 40 lbs (five gallon) pails.
When used as directed, the product is safe for fish and aquatic plants. It effectively controls phosphate levels and agglomerates suspended dirt particles to leave the fish or koi pond sparkling clear!
The pH of the pond must be checked! We recommend that pH be between 6.5 and 8.2. The reason is that – in very alkaline ponds (above pH 8.2) the Aluminum in these products can react with the alkaline groups to form Aluminum Hydroxide which can be toxic to fish.
Phosclear® can be sprinkled as a powder over the water surface or introduced through a waterfall or skimmer intake. It is best to get the product circulating throughout the pond.
The water will initially turn milky white but begin to clear rapidly in 1 or 2 hours. Within 24 hours the pond should be significantly clearer than before treatment.
For ponds with high phosphate levels or a lot of suspended dirt particles, additional treatments may be required after the first application. We recommend additional treatments every three (3) days until desired results are achieved.
Thereafter, the products should be applied every 4 to 6 weeks as routine maintenance.
