Please note: The manufacturers of Vanodine V18 do not advise using the product for keeping a pond clear. V18 affects surfactant will adversely affect the water-proofness of the feathers of ducks and the like. Iodine is toxic to aquatic species even at very low concentrations so fish, newts etc., will suffer if the pond is treated in this way.
