Improve Water Quality in Stagnant Ponds

Step 2 Supplements

Rush® improves water quality in stagnant ponds by eliminating heavily matted, floating organic matter on the surface of the pond. It enhances the nutrient-consumption activity of beneficial bacteria, accelerating the decomposition of floating organic matter.

Rush® directly spreads onto the organic material you are targeting and last 7-10 days. By accelerating the consumption of excess nutrients and increasing oxygenation in the water, Rush quickly and effectively reduces green organic matter in ponds.

Description

Rush® (51130, 50002)

Rush® is best used in combination with the AquaSphere®PRO or one of Healthy Ponds’ other dispensers as a means to compensate for seasonal spikes in nutrients and temperature. It is the product of choice for treating low-oxygen environments.

Healthy Ponds recommends monitoring your pond weekly for clarity and floating material. This allows you to identify and respond to potential problems before they start.

This particular product has to be signed for upon delivery.

Dosage Recommendations/Direction for Use

FLOATING ORGANIC MATTER
5 pounds of Rush® will treat 400 sq. /ft. of floating organic matter.
25 pounds of Rush® will treat 2000 sq. /ft. of floating organic matter.

Calculate the Surface Area of Pond
Length x Width = square feet of surface area
Estimate the surface area of the pond covered by the organic matter.
Apply Rush® evenly over the organic matter surface area at a rate of 1 pound per 80 sq. /ft. every 3-7 days as needed for removal and control. Ponds with floating organic matter may experience lower water oxygen levels as the floating matter decomposes. Ponds with large fish populations should reduce the dosage by 50% and treat affected area every 2-3 days.

WATER TREATMENT
5 pounds of Rush® will treat 30,000 gallons of treatment water.
25 pounds of Rush® will treat 150,000 gallons of treatment water.

Calculate the Total Gallons of Water
Length x Width x Depth x 7.5 = Total Gallons
Ponds: Apply Rush® evenly over the surface of the water at a rate of 1 pound for every 6,000 gallons every 7 days as needed.
Ornamental Water Features: Apply Rush® evenly over the surface of the water at a rate of 1 cup for every 4,500 gallons as needed every 7 days.

HEALTH MAINTENANCE
5 pounds of Rush® treats 250,000 gallons of healthy water.
25 pounds of Rush® treats 1,250,000 gallons of healthy water.

Calculate the Total Gallons of Water
Length x Width x Depth x 7.5 = Total Gallons
Ponds: Apply Rush® evenly over the surface of the water at a rate of 1 pound for every 50,000 gallons (1 cup will treat 30,000 gallons of water) every 7 days as needed.
Ornamental Water Features: Apply Rush® evenly over the surface of the water at a rate of 1/4 cup for every 2,500 gallons every 7 days as needed.

DO NOT ADD Bioverse microbial products for 24 hours after treatment.

CAUTION:
Microbial treatment in ponds with low oxygen levels, high water stagnation (no aeration), with high levels of organic matter AND containing large fish populations run a risk of initiating fish death due to low water oxygen levels. It is recommended that ponds stocked with fish be tested for oxygen levels as well as having a source of aeration in the pond prior to treatment with microbials.

MICROBIAL FACTS:
Treatment with microbials requires oxygen to establish bioremediation.
Microbial treatments will reduce the water oxygen levels as the bioremediation occurs.
Bioverse’s microbial products are 100% natural, safe, and effective for fish in all ponds as long there is enough oxygen for the number of fish living in that pond.
Ponds with large number of fish should have mechanical aeration systems in place as treatment is started for improved results.

POND WATER FACTS:
Low oxygen levels will produce localized fish death in any pond.
High heat will decrease the oxygen levels in ponds (as water temperatures increase the oxygen levels will decrease).
Ponds overstocked with fish will have lower oxygen levels than a pond that has no fish.
Excess amounts of organic debris will lower water oxygen levels.
Shallow ponds will always have lower water oxygen levels than ponds that are deeper.
