here are the actual AquaTech NEWS and our special offer of the 2nd quarter 2009:

Algae problems are not necessary and can be reduced or avoided with -

Digital ultrasound algae destroyer

Algae are problematic in many water areas and can create hughe problems and high costs in industry, agriculture and other fields wher water is used. Algae also make ponds and pools to ugly holes and can settlke on boat hulls - where expensive antifouling coatings are necessary. This digital ultrasound devices (connection 220-240 V/47-63 Hz AC or 12-32 V/1,5-2,0 A DC) send to the water (pond, pool or lake) special ultrasonic sound waves in periodic time scales trough the transducer in an ange of 180° on the front side. The wave length is depending on the type of the device and the mentioned distances are based on average values which can vary according to local circumstances, like water quality and water plants etc. In every algae the is a micoscopic liquid bubble called vacuole. Our digital ultrasound device force that to swing which burst and finaly kill the algae. But this is specific to different alage species. Single cell algae are killed after a treatment of 7-10 days, but filametous algae need a longer treatment and die after 3-7 weeks. In which time the water will get clear depends also on the biological balance in the water. But also the quality and capacity of the eventually installed filter plays an important role. Additionally, with the ultrasound also the biological film (which builds up as sludge on the bottom or wall) in your water will be reduced and remove the base for many diseases pathogenes like fungi or bacteria etc. The created ultrasound are not tho hear for humans. If the device is in operation you may hear just a little ticking. But some other animals like dogs can hear it and may stay away from the device. Other is the whole with fishes, which some customers report prefere the ultrasound and stay nearby may because their skinn is cleande from parasites. Fishes feel not only better but also grow faster and are healtier with the ultrasound device.Ultrasound algae destroyer
