    I have a customer that has that blue dye in the pond/waterfall. They were asking me if I knew a way to make the water clear again. I sure as hell don't know, since I don't due that kind of work. But after I left I was still kind of curious myself. Does any one have an answer for this? Oh yea, she also said that she prefered that it not be pumped out, since it would have to be drained on her lawn, and she was afraid that it would turn her lawn blue.

    The only way is to do water changes. Just get a really lond discharge hose and drain it into the street so it doesn't turn the lawn blue. Even if it does get on the lawn the color will wear off.

    Also the chances of the yard turning blue are very slim.

    I don't plan on doing it myself.......I was just wondering. Thanks though. Hopefully she will find someone.

    Yeah... I quit using the blue dye myself. Tried it out once and decided I did not like the look at all.

    Much of it is fish safe, so its probably okay to pump to a hardtop area.
