AlgoLon® destroys thread algae and aids in decomposing waste products (e.g. sludge) in ponds intended for various purposes: swimming ponds, ornamental ponds, ponds with ornamental fish, Koi ponds, water with new plants.
AlgoLon® quickly releases active oxygen in the water. Oxidation begins immediately, destroying the cell structure of the thread algae. The dead algae can be skimmed out of the water a few hours after the product is administered; any remaining thread algae is trapped in the filter. The oxygen in AlgoLon® also improves decomposition of the sludge at the bottom of the pond, where ventilation is poor. The activity and effectiveness of the bacteria that decompose sludge is improved, because it has access to more oxygen. AlgoLon® enhances filter functioning. The slime mold living in symbiosis with the thread algae is killed by the patented formula. Unless the slime mold is combated, methods such as mechanical removal of thread algae is counterproductive. AlgoLon® decomposes and leaves no residue. It contains no heavy metals or organic biocides and does not accumulate in organisms. It is a good idea to administer SeDox after using AlgoLon®; this will bond the phosphates, the main cause of algae growth.
AlgoLon® should be used in rain water and other soft water only after administering OptiLake. The pH-value may not exceed 8.5 at the time of application. If the pH-value is higher, first administer pH-Minus, then
OptiLake, then AlgoLon®.
30 g AlgoLon® per 1000 liters (1 m³) of pond water. Apply directly to the thread algae nests in the morning; sprinkle across the surface when the algae has spread substantially. Wait at least three days before repeating treatment. Check the pH-value. AlgoLon® can be used repeatedly throughout the season if needed.
AlgoLon® is available in the following quantities: 1 kg, 5 kg, 10 kg, 25 kg, 50 kg
