This product is a liquid copper-based formulation containing ethanolamine chelating agents to prevent the precipitation of copper with carbonates and bcarbonates in the water.
This product effectively controls a broad range of algae including: Planktonic (suspended) forms such as the Cyanobacteria (Microcystis, Anabaena & Aphanizomenon), Green algae (Raphidocelis & Cosmarium) Golden algae (Prymnesium parvum) and diatoms (Navicula & Fragilaria). Filamentous (mat-forming) forms such as the Green Alage (Spirogyra, Cladophora, Ulothriz & Rhizoclonium) and Benthic (bottom-growing) forms such as Chara and Nitella.
Water treated with this product may be used for swimming, fishing, further potable water treatment, livestock watering or irrigating turf, ornamental plants or crops after treatment.
Treatments with this product should be started when visible, actively growing algae and susceptible plants appear in spring, preferably before significant surface accumulations occur. Aeration and/or fountain systems, where available, should be in operation at the time of treatment.
