Some states restrict a variety of pond chemicals. You need to contact your local DNR to see what they allow in your area. We cannot be responsible for chemicals restricted in your state. Some states require you to be a licensed applicator. In that case, we may need to have a copy of your applicator's license on file before we can ship the product(s) to you.

* In case where restrictions are not given in above chart, consult your State Conservation Commission or Fish & Game Department for specific restrictions. Chemical manufacturers and manufacturer's representatives can also supply you with specific recommendations based upon water usage.
** See label for distance allowed from potable water intake.
+ Not for use in potable water.
NOTE: Waiting period ranges given for endothall products (7-25 days) are dependent upon dosages used. See labels for accurate determinations.
NOTE: Copper sulfate is not included in this chart nor is recommended due to problems with copper buildup in sediments and toxicity to aquatic organisms.
NOTE: Many pond chemicals are restricted in various states. It's up to you to contact your local DNR (department of natural resources) to see what products, if any, are restricted in your area. You also cannot treat any body of water if water flows to or from your property via a small stream, creek, etc.. This is because your body of water and how you treat it would essentially affect our public water system and the DNR has jurisdiction on what you can do to your pond and if you can treat it. Contact your local DNR to see what restrictions you may have, if any.
