How much Aquatain do I need to apply?
If applying Aquatain manually, we recommend an application rate of 2 litres per hectare every 10 days. If using a dosing unit (see below), the settings are calibrated to release approximately this amount.
What drum sizes are available?
Aquatain is available in:
- 2.5 litre and 5 litre drums (selected stores only)
- 20 litre drums
- 110 litre drums
- 200 litre drums
- 1,000 litre IBCs
How do I apply Aquatain?
Aquatain can be applied by simply pouring it directly from the drum on to the water. It will spread rapidly across the surface.
However, to ensure regular dosing and to enable you to ‘set it and forget it’, two automatic dosing units are available:
The DS-1 is designed for storages with a surface area up to 1 hectare (10,000 square metres), and is operated by 2 x 1.5 volt batteries
The DS-2 is designed for larger storages, and is solar powered.
Each unit delivers a programmed dose at regular intervals.

For storages greater than 20 hectares, aerial application is recommended.
