Sen­si­ble pre­cau­tions

Canal Boat - - Back Cabin -

As you might ex­pect, any­thing that will kill al­gae is likely to be harm­ful to aquatic and plant life so sen­si­ble pre­cau­tions are needed.

Be­fore be­ing treated, the canopy must be re­moved from the boat and placed on a paved or con­crete sur­face – not the lawn. Chil­dren and pets should not be al­lowed onto the area un­til the liq­uid has dried; once it’s dry it is to­tally safe.

Al­gae Zap­per can be ap­plied us­ing a pump spray, like the ones used for house­hold clean­ers, or from a wa­ter­ing can. You need to pick a dry day when rain is not ex­pected for eight hours.

Hav­ing ap­plied the liq­uid, you can then sit back and let the Al­gae Zap­per go to work. Af­ter a few days you will be left with a light brown ‘al­gae dust’ on your cover.This can ei­ther be washed off or just let na­ture work for you, each time it rains, the zap­per is re­ac­ti­vated to help flush the moss, mould and residue.

Al­gae Zap­per can also be used on vir­tu­ally any sur­face where al­gae col­lects in­clud­ing paving, fenc­ing, deck­ing and gates.

Kin­ver Canopies are sell­ing 5 and 2.5 litre con­tain­ers; it can be ap­plied neat for very badly af­fected canopies but is nor­mally di­luted with wa­ter in a ra­tio of 1:5 to 1:10.
