Do I Need To Dose As Recommended?
Dosing can vary from pond to pond. We do suggest the above dosing
for ponds with adequate filtration and a reasonable fish stocking
level. For ponds that are over-stocked with fish, you will want to
double the weekly dose. You will also want to double the dose for
ponds with inadequate filtration.
Can I Overdose My Pond With Thrive Koi Clay?
Thrive Koi Clay is a very safe product that cannot be
overdosed. The only ill effect that dosing very heavy can have
on your pond is that you can get too much settling of the clay on the
bottom of the pond. Also, dosing in very heavy amounts can cause
clogging of your filter pads. What is very heavy dosing?
When we say very heavy dosing, we are talking about 25 times or higher
than the recommended dosing amounts of Thrive Koi Clay. So
dosing two or three times over the recommended dosing will not
adversely affect your pond.
How Do I Know How Many Gallons My Pond Is?
Some simple math will give you a pretty good idea on how many
gallons your pond is:
