Get rid of Algae Blooms and Water Weeds with Diatomix Algae Control
Natural – Non-Toxic – Animal Friendly
Garden ponds can be difficult to keep free of weed and problem algae, but with Diatomix the solution is easy, safe and also very cost effective – approx. $1.50 per week.
Diatomix is highly concentrated, to ensure we keep our environmental footprint very small, using less packaging and less freight costs.
There are no harmful ingredients in Diatomix so it is safe to use and store, the only requirement is that you remember to give the bottle a really good shake prior to use.
How to Use & How Much?
We recommend for garden ponds up to 10 square metres (e.g. 5 metres long and 2 metres wide) put 5mL – yes only 1 teaspoon of Diatomix, in your pond three times a week. This is just $1.50 per week.
To ensure better coverage in your pond it is best to mix the recommended dose of Diatomix in a container with some pond water, then throw scoopfuls of this across your pond. Avoid getting it on top of any weeds as it needs to be in the pond water.
Remember that Diatomix is a specially formulated mix of Silica and 10 vital nutrients for Diatoms to grow and replicate so just like us they need regular (3 x per week) nourishment to survive.
If your pond is large (more than 30 square metres) we would recommend you contact us so we can advise you on our Diatomix range for larger water bodies.
