We recommend mixing salt and pond water in a bucket, and then spreading the slurry around the perimeter of your pond. Be careful to avoid direct contact with pond plants.
To calculate number of gallons in the pond: Multiply: Length (ft.) x width (ft.) x depth (ft.) x 7.48 = total gals. Basic application Rates:
Small Ponds: ˝ Cup (120g) per 10 gal. (38L) of pond water.

Be especially careful when adding any salt to tanks that contain aquatic plants as salt can have a toxic effect. Before adding salt to your tank, remove any zeolite products. Fish tend to emit excessive amounts of ammonia when salted, so be sure to test your water for ammonia spikes. Do not overdose.
