Q: I want to use this for a fountain for Christmas. Does the water stay a bright red? if so how long does it take to fade? Will it dye the colors of the rocks? is it safe for the pump motor in the fountain? When we drain the fountain, it goes into our pond, will it be safe then too?
A: It is dye so it will eventually fade but not for a while. It is safe for pump motor, fish any wildlife. Like I said it is a dye so yes it would color anything it touches.
