Fish Safe Algae Control - Ultra Sonic Algae Control System


Ultra Sonic Algae Control - How it works:

In most basic terms, the algae cells get shaken to bits! In little more detailed terms, the control box of the Ultrasound system has a micro chip that digitally generates a range of ultrasound frequencies. The transducer (under the water) then emits these frequencies as a series of pulses five times per second. As these pulses strike the algae cells they start to oscillate. The cells reach a point where they burst, much like an opera singer smashing a wine glass on the right note!

Not only will ultrasound kill algae but it also eliminates "biofilm". This is the slime that can be found on submerged surfaces (i.e. rocks, liner, etc.). Over time algae grows on the biofilm. Ultrasound waves prevent biofilm as well as other water born pathogens such as E.coli.

2 Year Warranty - Average product lifespan 10 years

Works In All Seasons!

Some strains of algae grow during the winter months. The Ultra Sonic works in all temperatures and is helpful in preventing spring time algae blooms that often occur when the ice melts.

A minimum of 2½' of water depth is required for any Ultra Sonic system to work properly.

Ultra Sonic Algae Control - Before and After

The ultrasound wave emitted are absorbed as they travel through the water. In essence, they become weaker the further they travel from the transducer. As a result, easy to control algae types can be controlled far out into the pond while harder to control strains, like Chara, will be controlled in close ranges but not as far away.

The size of the coverage area will depend on several factors including the type of algae being controlled. Simple algae forms like floating algae will be controlled over an area up to the sizes listed below in the product details, harder forms of algae will be controlled over a smaller area due to their resistant nature. other factors such as pond shape, presence of fountain, aerators, water clarity, weed growth, etc will also affect coverage size. In larger ponds having complex shapes more than one device may have to be used.

It's important the transducer is located in the proper location of the pond. Island, bays and other obstacles in the pond will limit the effectiveness of the unit. Ultra Sonic Algae Control

While the initial purchase price is higher than chemicals for controlling algae, the increasing cost of these products along with many new paperwork regulations coming make these units a great control method. Divide the cost of an ultrasound unit by ten (average life span in years) and the cost per year is very comparable to chemical algae control, its better for the environment and you can install it, plug it in and your done - no maintenance!
