Cloverleaf Blanket Answer
Cloverleaf Blanket Answer is one of our best selling lines for blanket weed and certainly works well for thousands of happy customers. Cloverleaf Blanket Answer is a unique blend of minerals and enzymes to combat blanket weed – the nightmare curse of many a pondkeeper. The special formula works in all temperatures, and seeks to succeed where many commercial bacteria cultures will fail. It is 100% safe for all pond fish, plants, and biological filtration systems. UV units or protein skimmers need not be switched off. Unlike some products on the market Blanket Answer is not dependent upon water temperature, and is not held back/restricted by high ph levels.
For persistent Blanket Weed filamentous algae growth it is recommended that the pond be treated 8 times a year. This in itself will likely mean that the treatment over the course of a year will be cheaper than many similar competitive products. An 800 Gram bottle of “Blanket Answer” will treat 10,000 litres (2,222 gallons).
Blanket Answer is simply added to the pond by sprinkling the powder evenly over the surface. The water will initially take on a white milky appearance, but this will clear after about 5 days.
The composition of the ingredients will form as a powdery layer on the ponds liner faces, and it is here that the roots of any blanket weed gets attacked. As with most water treatments the pond should have a good level of oxygen saturation. During and after applying, common sense should prevail in the washing of hands, and storing the product in a dry place away from the reach of children. Although no known dangers are thought to exist the application to the pond of any other chemical or treatment should be spaced 10 days from applying the Blanket Answer.
Cloverleaf have received many telephone calls from users of Blanket Answer giving praise to the product, it is Cloverleaf’s pleasure to provide the pond keeper with a quality product that works effectively (as with all other Cloverleaf products). Below are a series of extracts taken from various internet pond related forums. Perhaps you have contributed to sharing the good news. If so thank you.
Cloverleaf Blanket Answer is the King!
Cloverleaf Blanket Answer. I used this product April last year and still no blanket weed yet, its brill stuff. Cheers Andy.
After 14 years of blanket weed problems I have found a cure!!!!!!!!!!
The product is called Blanket Answer and is sold by Cloverleaf .Its a powder you sprinkle onto the surface, It goes milky for a while and you must have a good air pump running with airstones. Up till 2 months ago I have always had 5mm of the shite on my pond walls. With this gear I have none. A BIG THANK YOU to Cloverleaf.
Hi all. I used this product about 2 years ago and its brilliant, so why try other things on the market if this works ??????
I'm amazed at just how good it actually is really. This may sound like a silly thing to say but when you look at the outside of the bottle, its very plain and basic and doesn't really 'glam' itself up as the wonder product that it seems that it is.
Cloverleaf Blanket Answer. I don't know anyone it has NOT worked for.
I used Viresco and it had little effect. I also tried the No More Blanket Weed - didn’t have much luck with that either and seemed to get problems with my water after (though could have been a coincidence??) The only thing which actually ever got rid of the stuff for me was Cloverleaf. I think different ponds sometimes get different results but the Cloverleaf seems to have worked for many on this forum.
Hi Jason, I used the Cloverleaf Blanket Answer when my blanketweed got to a length of about half an inch in September 2005. The tub says the pond water will be milky for about 5 days but mine stayed milky for about 9 days. A bit of a worry at first because you cant see the fish. Don’t worry though this in my opinion is a superb product. Give it a try. Regards Scotty.
I have everyone’s blanket weed 3500 galls I use a water king elec controller uv and have tried almost every chemical on market (Cloverleaf seems to be working at moment).
It's working a treat....although my liner looks like sh!t at the mo. The filters have to be cleaned every other day and the pump the same. It's really dying down now though. Just need to invest in a good pond vac to clean everything up!
Try cloverleaf's Blanket weed answer it well turn your pond white for 5 or 6 days but it will clear and the b/w will die. Did mine last year (end of march) and still no b/w at all it is chemical free as well hope this helps
If you have approx £13 to spend...get some Cloverleaf Blanket Answer. This stuff is magic and trust me...it clears the blanket weed.
Hi Richard. We had blanket weed so bad last year it was blocking the bottom drains, I used a full dose of the Cloverleaf blanket answer, It did make the pond look like milk for over a week but boy did it ever work, infact it worked so well the dead blanket weed was blocking the filters! This was early summer 2005 and not had a touch of blanket weed since, The sides of the pond are showing the fibreglass with just a tinge of brown stuff growing on it.
Cheers Pete for the advice, my local dealer doesn't stock Blanket Answer yet but I am sure he will when he checks my post out and sees what people are saying about it.
Hi. I had bad blanket weed last summer. Pond Balance did nothing for it, even though I had success with it the year before, and it didn't stop throughout this winter. A few weeks ago I tried the Cloverleaf. This seems to be working quite well though it still hasn't all gone yet. But considering some of it was up to 5ft long, it hasn't done too bad.
As always people have different opinions, but I don’t think you will go far wrong with Cloverleaf Blanket Answer. I would recommend.
The best and only stuff I have used is the Cloverleaf Blanket Answer. I used to have blanket weed but not anymore. Ian.
Hi Mark, If its blanket weed that you have, the best product to use is Cloverleaf Blanket Answer. This will clear it up.
Try Cloverleaf Blanketweeed I’ve used it and I found it very very good
Cloverleaf product is superb. Since application I’ve been advised that a half dose is enough, l did a full dose and the pond took a month to clear, it looked awful.
I agree...Cloverleaf, I tried many products before this without results, but this stuff worked.
I've just purchased a bottle of the Cloverleaf Blanket Answer and have applied a dose to commence the 4 - 5 days of milky water. I'm now eager to see if the treatment lives up to the praise it gets!! I think the fish are wondering what the hell I'm doing as I strive to clean my water and I've just chucked a load of powder in but hopefully their understand in a few days!! Being a very impatient person, I couldn't give the Cloverleaf Blanket Answer 4-5 days to do its stuff..... I gave it 3 days instead......And not a sign of blanketweed in sight. Believe me, I had loads of it. All ponds sides were covered, huge long strands of it were almost reaching a foot or two long. All the pipes feeding to my pump and air stones were covered. but now everything is clear as a bell (of blanketweed at least, the water still needs sorting). So 10 out of 10 for this product and massively recommended if you have the problem!!
I applied one application at the beginning of the season, NO Blanketweed since, not even when we had the heat wave, pond had remained blanketweed Free!!!! I'm hoping next season brings the same success.
When I spoke to John at Cloverleaf he said they had been a victim of their own success and could hardly keep up with demand. It works and I guess word gets around.
It was Andy that put me on to this product and he was 100% right. It was the only one which worked for me.
I used this at beginning of year just has a precaution and haven’t seen any since, best product I have used for years.
Over many years I’ve spent a small fortune in trying every product on the market to remove what I have described on many forums as “weirdo weed”. In desperation I even sent a sample to a Government funded laboratory, but they could offer no solution to the frustrating problem. The answer however came from Cloverleaf’s Blanket Answer which I truly believe is magical, and now I have enjoyed several years of crystal clear water without any algae’s.
Sorry friends go for Cloverleaf, EA can cause problems dropping the PH, Barley straw is fine to inhibit but not to exterminate, CLOVERLEAF did a great job for me ! good luck
EA works great but I had ph drop too so now I use Cloverleaf which works good too, the only down side to Cloverleaf is it takes up to 2 weeks to clear from milky white appearance ,but I have just ordered more as I think the rewards of no blanket weed is worth it.
I agree...Cloverleaf, I tried many products before this without results, but this stuff worked.
I use Phoenix 2000, no weed, but this is also down to the Cloverleaf Blanket Answer which got rid of it all in Summer 2005.
4 years ago I discovered Oase string algae control (blanket weed). It was OK, it stopped it growing but never ever got rid. Then in spring of this year I used Interpet Pond Balance...yea, rid the pond of the BW on the bottom and reduced it on the sides to half a centimetre. But then I found this forum and the views on the Cloverleaf gear were tops!! 2 and half weeks since treating its dissolved it off the sides and the scale on the bottom of my pond is coming off. I CAN SEE MY LINER.
Don't give that horse a chance to bolt!
Cloverleaf Blanketweed Answer for me every time. I bought some for the first time this year after trying many other methods and this sorted it in a couple of days and its not returned. In fact, of all the things I've bought for the pond this year, its the best thing I've paid for!
Cloverleaf Blanket Answer, the best solution, I used it for the first time this year on Rick's advice, and a lot of other members saying how good it is, and as recommended only used 1/2 the dose, Result no blanket weed all year. NONE
Hi all, I’m just writing this for anyone baffled by the endless "miracle" cures for the dreaded blanketweed. I was told about Cloverleaf's blanket answer so decided to give it a go after a particularly heavy infestation in my pond for reasons unknown, The water went cloudy for a couple of days then it cleared & immediately you could see the beginnings of it working. After 2 to 3 weeks there is nothing left, the people I got it from say its common to use just half the recommended dosage which I don’t doubt, so there you have it, buy some next time the dreaded weed returns, amazing product !!!!!
I don’t go a lot on gadgets they never seem to work how they are supposed to. The best thing on the market for Blanket weed in my opinion is Blanket weed Answer from Cloverleaf. I don’t know any one that has used it and hasn’t had fantastic results. Gets my vote every time. Justin
Hi Tom Cloverleaf Blanket Answer is the name of the product I have recently used it myself and it works wonders. It took approx 2 weeks to rid my pond completely of blanketweed. It also puts a nice polish on the water.
Having read the letter from Nigel Farris in the December issue (Koi magazine), concerning the death of his three Koi and the application of Cloverleaf’s Blanket Answer, I thought I’d write to let you know I had quite the opposite results. I used Blanket Answer in my 2,750-gallon pond after a particularly sudden and heavy attack of blanket weed. After three or four days the cloudiness caused by adding Blanket Answer started to clear and immediately the blanket weed had started to die off, and in the next few days all I had to do was make sure my bottom drain didn’t block up – such was the rate of the weed dying! It had gone without a trace after two weeks, with my fish feeding well all that time and with no ill effects whatsoever. Fingers crossed, it has shown no sign of coming back. I was sorry to hear of the demise of Nigel’s fish but I can’t endorse this product enough.

Go with Cloverleaf Blanket answer as recommended. Used the stuff for the first time about 3 weeks ago (2 full bottles) and it has worked a treat. I think it may be the only bw product that does what it says on the tin. Your sturgeon will be very grateful. Cheers.
I used Cloverleaf for the first time about a month ago, I put the full amount stated on the bottle in, after 2 weeks all my blanket weed was gone and I now have crystal clear water. Amazing product.
Put my Cloverleaf Blanket Answer in my pond on Saturday, wow is the only word I can use. Excellent stuff noticed a difference within a few hours, but the one thing I’ve really noticed is my sturgeon is a lot happier not having to fight his way round the pond anymore. Thanks for all the advice.
Tell you what - many people have wasted a LOT of money in the past on BW products that didn't work. Have you seen a single person post up yet that Cloverleaf’s Blanket Answer didn't kill their BW?
Used the EA stuff, it made water PH unbearable and its not cheap, my advice use the Cloverleaf stuff, it works and is reasonable to buy.
I had success with EA last year but not this year. I started dosing in March, bought a big tub for 50 quid, dosed for 8 consecutive weeks instead of the recommended 3 ....... and it hardly had any effect. I slightly overdosed with Cloverleaf treatment and its all gone. Just had a weeks holiday and got back to crystal clear water.
I gave it 3 goes with the EA earlier this year and it was still growing, hit it with 2/3rd dose of Cloverleaf Blanket Answer and it is back to bare walls - my pond was clearing after 2 days and crystal after about 4/5.
