How To Apply

Surface Application - Mix 2-3 ounces of Clipper with 1 gallon of water for every 1/8 acre (5,456 feet).

Subsurface Application - Mix 8 ounces of Clipper with 1 gallon of water for every 1/8 acre (5,456 feet).

Mix the amount of Clipper and Treatment Booster PLUS (if using) with water in a tank sprayer according to label instructions. Spray onto floating weeds and algae, or place the tip beneath the water's surface. Over time, the weeds will begin to brown and die. Once completely dead, use a rake, like the Pond & Beach Rake, to remove dead weeds to prevent an accumulation of dead plant material and muck.

When To Apply

Clipper has no temperature restriction, but it should only be applied when weeds are actively growing. Do not re-treat the same section of water within 28 days of application.


  • Wait 5 days before using treated water for irrigation.

Did not work at all

I was a bit disappointed with the Clipper, especially with how expensive it was. It may work for someone else, but did not work at all for me. The only reason I gave 2 stars instead of one was because of some slight brown on the surface of the Chara that I sprayed, but all it sprayed under water did nothing. I really hate giving negative feedback, but I have to be honest with my experience and disappointment.

What a wonderful product. I tried multiple treatments of other products, no luck. I had both the duckweed and pondweed in my pond. It has helped tremendously. My pond honestly never looked so good. Thanks
