Crystal Plex Algaecide
CRYSTAL PLEX is an algaecide which controls existing algae and inhibits rapid re-infestation. CRYSTAL PLEX also acts as a herbicide in controlling the rooted underwater weed Hydrilla verticillata.
CRYSTAL PLEX is U.S.E.P.A. registered for use in drinking water reservoirs, farm fish and industrial ponds, golf course water hazards, lakes, fish hatcheries and raceways, irrigation water conveyance systems such as canals, laterals and ditches. Water can be used for swimming, domestic uses and livestock watering immediately after chemical application.
Water from treated lakes, ponds, irrigation systems and golf course water hazards may be used to irrigate turf, fairways, putting greens and ornamental plants.
Fish can be caught and consumed immediately after application
Registered for use in:
Potable Water Reservoirs, Farm, Fish and Industrial Ponds, Lakes, Fish Hatcheries and Raceways, Irrigation Conveyance Systems, Ditches, Canals, Laterals Golf Course Water Hazards.
Algae at 0.2 to 0.4 ppm copper and hydrilla at 0.4 to 1.0 ppm copper.
Controls all three forms of algae: planktonic, filamentous and chara
CRYSTAL PLEX is applied at a rate of 0.6 gallon per acre-foot (43,560 cubic feet) of water to be treated for planktonic and filamentous algae, 1.2 gallons per acre-foot for Chara and Nitella and 1.2 to 3.0 gallons per acre-foot for Hydrilla.
Method of Application:
CRYSTAL PLEX should be diluted with at least 9 parts of water to facilitate even distribution during application. Surface spray is most practical for treatment of planktonic and filamentous algae. Bottom-growing algae should be treated by underwater injection or by application of CRYSTAL PLEX. Hydrilla can be treated by surface spray or underwater injection.
