Please do not eat, drink or smoke whilst handling chemicals.
Wear disposable vinyl or latex gloves and appropriate eye protection.
Dosage: 6.8gms per 1000 gallons (4546 Litres) of pond water.
Do not use below 10°C (50°F).
Directions: Measure the correct dosage for your pond. Add to a bucket of hot water and aerate for 20 miniutes to gas off any impurities. Fill a clean watering can with solution from the bucket, slowly apply to the pond over a 1 hour period. This will prevent shocking the pond with a highly concentrated dose.
Kusuri Potassium Permanganate will turn the water purple. Re-dose as required to achieve a minimum of 15 hours of purple coloured water e.g., 2 hours and the pond goes brown, redose, pond goes brown after 5 hours, redose, pond goes brown after 8 hours. 2+5+8=15 hours of purple water. Kusuri recommend adding Hydrogen Peroxide 6% to re-oxygenate and clear brown pond water.
Kusuri do not recommend the use of this chemical as a dip treatment.
