EarthTec Product Overview
Copper Sulfate Reduction
EarthTec can be used to replace copper sulfate. Many customers have been using copper sulfate for years to treat unwanted algal blooms in the late spring and throughout the summer. The problem is copper sulfate crystals sink, so much of the copper is wasted and settles to the bottom. It also requires an extensive labor campaign to apply the product. These drawbacks are eliminated with EarthTec. EarthTec can be applied in one location and it will evenly distribute throughout the body of water. All of the product is immediately bioavailable and toxic to algae. EarthTec does not settle out and is not wasted. The residual EarthTec stays in solution to prevent algae regrowth and is only consumed when met with biological demand. Most customers who switch from traditional copper sulfate crystals (25% Cu) to EarthTec (5% Cu) find that they immediately reduce the amount of copper they are adding to the environment.
Algae Control Problems / Taste & Odor
Are you frustrated with yearly complaints from customers about the earthy, musty smell of the water? By proactively monitoring blue-green algae levels and monitoring yearly lake trends we can help you start controlling the algae that releases taste & odor compounds into your source water. We can detect the problem before you start getting complaints and begin using a very low dose of EarthTec to kill the algae that is present and prevent it from turning into a much larger problem. By monitoring the problem we can help your normal taste and odor event become a shorter episode with fewer complaints from your customers.

EarthTec QZ Product Overview
Kills Zebra and Quagga Mussels
QZ is NSF-Certified to ANSI Standard 60 for drinking water, making it one of the most practical approaches available for controlling the spread and infestation of this devastating species. EarthTec QZ can be applied in lakes, reservoirs and pipelines leading to water treatment facilities. It is a product that is rapidly dispersing and immediately bioavailable. The zebra mussels do not detect QZ as a threat and readily ingest it. Studies generally confirm complete mortality within a 48-96 hr period of time. It has also shown to be effective at concentrations that are non-toxic for most fish and other non-target organisms.
EarthTec QZ is the cost-effective and proven solution of choice at municipalities across the U.S. Contact us to discuss how we can help address your infestation too.
