Introducing Sonar RTU Aquatic Herbicide—the newest formulation for successful do-it-yourself weed control for ponds. Sonar RTU is a Ready-To-Use formula that controls most troublesome pond weeds including Duckweed. No mixing, no need for spray equipment or a boat—simply apply directly into the water from the shoreline. Sonar* Ready-To-Use RTU represents an exciting new era in pond weed management for the do-it-yourselfer! The innovative new RTU formulation allows anyone to make water usable for recreation, bring fish populations back into balance and restore property values. It’s so simple that applying Sonar RTU doesn’t require any mixing, special spray equipment or a boat simply open the bottle and treat from the shoreline. Based on a ¼ acre pond with a 4 foot average depth, the initial application would be one quart of Sonar RTU. This treatment would be followed up by ½ quart 21 days after the initial treatment and another ½ quart 42 days after the initial treatment. In fact, Sonar RTU is so effective and simple to use, the results are guaranteed. We’re so sure that applications of Sonar RTU conducted according to directions will control target aquatic vegetation listed on the label that we’ll work with you until you see the results you expect. Sonar RTU and Duckweed Many pond owners consider duckweed to be their toughest aquatic weed problem. Duckweed is a very common nuisance aquatic weed that is spread from pond to pond via waterfowl or other wildlife. While it is commonly mistaken for algae, duckweed is actually a tiny plant with an explosive reproductive capacity that can completely cover a pond in just a few weeks to the point that the infested waterbody resembles a golf-course green. No other aquatic herbicide is more effective on duckweed. Sonar provides complete, long-lasting control of duckweed and other stubborn unwanted aquatic vegetation. Sonar RTU programs should be initiated in February thru the end of June for optimal results. Once an untreated pond has been allowed to top out with weeds, consumers should consider the use of Sonar AS or Sonar Q. Contact Aquatic Control for programs options and application dates.

I have had duckweed for years and tried many tactics to rid myself of the stuff. This product works wonders. Yes, you must purchase it every year, but it is worth it.

I was very hesitant to spend almost $500 for a herbicide that I could find almost no rating information. But, my pond is in the front of my house and was totally covered by Duckweed and looked really bad. I think the turtles, fish, and frogs were being impacted by the choking weed coverage as well. So, I took a chance and gave Sonar RTU a try. It has taken four weeks, but almost all of the Duckweed is gone.
It took some time to see a difference. There was almost no noticeable difference in Duckweed coverage for the first three weeks; then, slowly, the Duckweed started to clump-up and disappear. No indication of any residual effects concerning pond life. Pond-edge grasses turned white but trees and shrubs seem fine. I will make the final third application of the product in about another two weeks.
Sonar RTU is expensive, but did the job as advertised for me. After spending much time researching, Rural King had the best price that I could find.

Sonar has kept the small pond from being covered by duckweed, but it's starting to multiply again. I'll have to treat it again for the 4th time. Not sure what else to use.
