Algaecides
  • Introduction

    Quality Products for Water Quality
    Algae are small organisms which spread rapidly through flowing water, wind or on living organisms. Once in a pond, algae can cause cloudy water, a scum on the water surface, and/or thick mats that may be both underwater and floating on the water’s surface. Applied Biochemists offers a variety of algaecides which vary in type of algae controlled, active ingredient, use sites, formulation, application rate, water use restrictions, dilution requirements, permit requirements and product registration and availability. Be sure to comply with all government regulations for use. Always refer to product labels and MSDS for information about specific products. Always read product label prior to use. Please select from the algaecide products below for detailed product information and literature.
