  • Revitalise Your Water Body with Aquatic Blue: Enhance Appearance and Control Algae

    With our revolutionary Aquatic Blue dye, you can effortlessly refresh the colour of your water, reduce UV light penetration, and effectively manage green water. Our highly concentrated formula ensures vibrant and long-lasting results, surpassing any other dye available on the market. Plus, the added anti-foaming agent makes it perfect for use in fountains and water features.

    Safety and Simplicity at Its Best

    Rest assured, Aquatic Blue is entirely safe for use around humans, livestock, fish, domestic pets, and wildlife. Once diluted into the water column, it poses no harm to swimming or staining skin, hair, clothes, rocks, or sand. Applying our dye is a breeze – just follow the instructions, measure the required amount, and apply directly into the water or spray for a quick and hassle-free outcome.

    Unveiling the Science behind Aquatic Blue

    Dyes have emerged as a powerful method to transform green water by limiting light penetration into the water. Our science-backed product works by effectively restricting the penetration of UV rays into the water column. With our dye filtering the sun’s rays, the water body experiences a significant reduction in UV light, which it imparts a mesmerising blue hue to your water, elevating its overall aesthetics.

    Promoting Healthier Waters

    Aquatic Blue’s unique light-filtering properties may lead to decreased water temperatures where applied6. This cooling effect plays a vital role in increasing oxygen saturation, which benefits fish health and fosters the growth of beneficial bacteria in your water6. Additionally, the change in water colour due to Aquatic Blue can make fish less visible to predators, thanks to the refraction of light against the blue hue6.

    Let’s break it down: Aquatic plants and algae require sunlight for photosynthesis and growth2. Aquatic Blue acts as a barrier, preventing light penetration into the water. Our dye is specifically formulated to filter out red-orange and blue-violet light rays from the sun.

    Did You Know?

    • Colder water holds more oxygen, benefiting the health of fish and promoting the growth of beneficial bacteria.
    • Reducing light intensity in water can help maintain stable pH levels for a longer duration.

    The Aquatic Blue Formula

    Our innovative blend consists of highly concentrated colourants and dispersants, ensuring even distribution and vibrant colour throughout your water. With Aquatic Blue, you can bid farewell to clumping or sinking dye particles – enjoy a consistent depth of colour and long-lasting effects.

    Revive Your Pond with Aquatic Blue

    Aquatic Blue is expertly formulated to disperse evenly throughout your water source, creating a visually stunning blue hue that permeates your entire pond. Our dye works quickly and has a lasting effect, providing the perfect solution for maintaining the aesthetic appeal of your water. Say goodbye to clumpy dye particles and embrace a remarkable depth of colour that stands the test of time.
