PondCare Accu-Clear is a colorless liquid that rapidly eliminates cloudy water in ponds and water gardens

Newly constructed ponds may develop cloudy water during the first few weeks, especially in warm, sunny conditions. Established ponds can also experience cloudy water any time. Cloudy, discolored water may form while changing the filter, working with aquatic plants or when making a water change. In all these instances, Accu-Clear quickly restores pond water to a crystal clear condition.

Accu-Clear causes tiny, suspended cloud-forming particles to clump together into larger clumps called flocs. Once clumped together these flocculated particles are easier to trap in the pond filter than the tiny particles, thereby aiding the filter system in keeping the water clear.

If the pond does not have a filtration system, the flocs will settle to the bottom of the pond or become trapped in the pump prefilter. As the water clears, the particles will accumulate in the filter and it will be necessary to rinse the prefilter and filter pads/foams more often when using Accu-Clear to regain crystal clear water.

Before using Accu-Clear, make certain that the pond has vigorous aeration, (a fountain, waterfall or aeration device) especially during hot summer months. In summer heat, pond water contains very little oxygen.

In sunlight, algae and submerged plants produce oxygen, and in some cases may be the major source of oxygen in the pond. At night, however, submerged plants and algae actually consume oxygen. Decomposing organic matter also consumes oxygen, even after it is removed by the filter. Until the filter is changed, decomposing organic matter may still cause the oxygen level to drop to harmful levels if adequate aeration is not provided.

Therefore, when using Accu-Clear, especially during the warm summer months, adequate aeration is required to keep oxygen levels healthy for your fish. Do not shut off pond pumps or aeration devices at night! Aeration must be provided to pond life at all times.
