Pond Clear Plus

Applied Polymer Systems products harness the power of environmentally friendly materials to solve numerous water quality, erosion, and sediment challenges. Anionic polyacrylamide (PAM) is a polymer flocculant that can be used for a wide variety of erosion, sediment, and stormwater management applications. APS products bind, stabilize, and/or remove commonly problematic particles like sediment (clays, silt), metals, and nutrients to prevent erosion, clear water, and improve BMP performance. APS products are made and packaged in the United States, are drinking water quality (NSF/ANSI Standard 60 Certified), have been extensively toxicity tested by third party laboratories in accordance with EPA standards, and are safe for both terrestrial and aquatic organisms and environments.

Directions for Use

  • Pond Clear Plus may be applied via hydroseed or dry/hand spreading.
  • Apply evenly over the surface of entire pond. Wait 24 hours for turbidity to settle to bottom.
