Model EU100 - Biological Algae Control Product
EU100 is a biological product specifically formulated to control the growth of algae and other nuisance plants. Algae tend to flourish where nutrients are freely available to them, usually Nitrate and Phosphates. These nutrients are present in lakes, ponds and lagoons - due to run off from agricultural and other activities/natural processes including the breakdown of fish and shrimp food products.
EU100 controls the growth of these nuisance plants by out competing them for the nutrients that are essential to their growth. EU100 is designed to operate in both aerobic and anaerobic conditions.
EU100 is applied at a rate of 3.5grams/m2 water per day x 3 days then 0.5 grams per m2 per day until the algae goes. The product can simply be thrown onto the water surface or via a feeder stream.
EU100 can depress dissolved oxygen levels and these should be monitored and corrected as necessary.
