inexperienced pond owner to make water usable for recreation,
bring fish populations back into balance and restore property
Sonar RTU, the first Sonar product designed specifically for
small pond and lake owners. Now you can benefit from time-tested
application methods and materials developed by SePRO scientists all
in one convenient package you'll use right on your water's
Sonar RTU contains 5% fluridone in an easy-to-use liquid
formulation that is applied straight from the bottle. Sonar RTU
requires absolutely NO mixing,
diluting, spray equipment or boat.
Sonar works by stopping photosynthesis, which robs target plants
of their ability to make food. Target plants turn white and
gradually die over a period of six to twelve weeks. Unlike other
aquatic herbicides, Sonar has no restrictions for swimming,
fishing, boating or livestock use, even immediately after
application. Check the label for irrigation
Initial results show a bleaching at growing tips of the weed.
Within 7 to 10 days weeds begin to turn white or pink and decay.
Under optimum conditions full weed kill occurs in 30 to 90 days.
Results occur slowly.
Sonar RTU comes in a distinctive squeeze bottle that only
requires the user to lift the nozzle on the lid and squirt the
Sonar RTU directly into the water. Treating an entire lake or pond
only takes a few minutes. After measuring the size of the water
body, consult the rate chart included with each Sonar RTU purchase
to determine the amount of Sonar required.
Apply half of the total dose on day one, then return 21 and 42
days later to add the rest. Simply apply Sonar RTU at two to four
locations around the water body each time and the unique
formulation of Sonar RTU will disperse throughout the water.
