Reduce copper sulfate
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) see an immediate reduction of the amount of copper added to the environment.
