Please Note:

  • When using natural products such as Hydro-Bugs, patience is required! Please allow 6 to 8 weeks to see complete results.
  • Turn off all UV treatments for 24 hours after application to ensure that the bacteria have time to colonize your pond.
  • For best results, please use in water above 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius).


  • For a healthy, well-maintained pond, use 1 tablespoon (1/2 ounce) of Hydro-Bugs per 1,000 gallons of pond water to maintain good water clarity and a healthy ecosystem.
  • Apply it evenly over the surface of the pond or near its primary circulation pump.
  • Apply it daily for the first 2 weeks then continue applying it at least 2 to 4 times per month thereafter.
  • If poor water quality exists in the pond, then you may apply Hydro-Bugs at a higher rate, up to 1/2 cup (8 tablespoons) per 1,000 gallons of pond water.
  • Apply the product regularly for optimal results.
