Koi clay is a fine powder that dissolves readily in water.
The dosage rate is only 2 tablespoons per 1,000 gallons. Using more than that rate will turn the water gray. And my water did turn gray but cleared up - crystal clear 3 days later. Three days later it was all dead and we vacuumed it up off the bottom of the tank.
Now I have found that for my pond it will take 3 treatments every day for 3 days. Depending on how much string algae in your pond you may need more or less treatments.
Now I use 2 tablespoons per 1000 gallons of water once a week, 52 weeks a year. I have found this keeps the string algae gone.
My Personal Experience:
We are in the middle of spawning our Koi (May 2002) and one of my fry tanks had massive amounts of string algae. I would normally not be too concerned about it because the fry will eat the string algae. But the amount that we had was massive, almost 12 inches long and I was worried that the fry would get tangled in the string algae and die.
Our four-year old granddaughter was here helping "grandma" and accidentally spilled the whole container in the tank.
Interestingly enough the fish were fine, the water turned gray and stayed gray for a couple of days and then algae died off and was gone. The water was crystal clear and actually sparkled.
