I have been told I will need hydrated lime for my muddy water. My local tractor supply has what he called powdered yard lime for only $4.49 a 50# bag. Is that what I need and is ag lime the same thing? Also need a source for Alum? TSC has 42 bags in stock.

I tried to send him a PM but it said he has gone over his allotted message limit?? If you have contact with him can you give him a message to PM me? Will overtons come out and treat my muddy water?

I don't think the yard lime is what you are looking for. Stop by your local seed and feed store for hydrated lime. It should not be hard to find.

East Texas - Red clay muddying your water?

I used Barn Lime from Tractor Supply. Probably the same stuff, powdered limestone. $2.99 a bag. Perhaps 8 bags cleared up my red water in a couple of days and it has never recurred. Cheap and easy, if it doesn't work you aren't out much and your pond will still love you.

Hydrated lime is something else entirely. BE CAREFUL with it. It can kill fish and must be applied correctly.

definantly not a bloom Pat. I put just a 1/4 teaspoon alum in the jar of water and it went perfectly clear and all stuff settled on bottom in a matter of minutes!!

Hydrated lime is white powder (like baby powder) and is highly caustic. You do not want it on you or to breath it.

Yard lime/ag lime is entirely different.
