Extra care should be taken if river type fish are present such as * Orfe-Rudd-Roach-Sturgeon it is important to maintain a high level of saturated oxygen if present.

The pond water will take on a milky appearance after application this may last 4-7 days depending on the pond conditions. Over the next 7-10days, the blanket weed will normally disappear in some cases it may take a little longer. It may also sometimes be necessary to add a top-up dose to some ponds to finally remove all the blanket weed although adding an additional top-up will not cause any harm we suggest leaving at least 14 days from the date of first treatment to allow time for the initial dose to complete the task.
In the bulk of cases, one treatment may be sufficient but in stubborn cases, we recommend regular use of Cloverleaf Prevent which has been designed specifically to keep blanket weed at bay after the initial treatment of Cloverleaf Blanket Answer.
After using Blanket Answer remember to add Cloverleaf "Sludge Answer"
Once the blanket weed has broken down and disappeared this will help to maintain a healthy balance in the pond by adding a unique culture of live bacteria to combat water pollution from decaying matter, this product is safe for all fish and the water is safe for all animals and birds and can be used all year round to help maintain a healthy biological balance.
The use of Cloverleaf Absolute Pearls is also an ideal way of adding a continual supply of natural bacteria all year.
