Potassium permanganate (KMnO4)

Common treatment rates are 2 parts per million (ppm) or milligrams per liter (mg/L) for an indefinite pond application or 10 mg/L for a 10-minute tank  treatment. Actual treatment rates in ponds will vary  depending on the amount of organic matter, or organic load, in the water.
