Fountec keeps water continuously clear and helps remove and
prevent green, blue-green, yellow, and black type algae in water.
Fountec not only improves water quality but provides superior
treatment results. Fountec's maintenance program eliminates
scrubbing, continuous chlorine use and makes year-round fountain
care simple and most effective. To keep fountain surfaces scale
and stain-free and looking new, use Protec Surface Protector.
Before You Start: The most effective use of
Fountec is best achieved when fountain and water garden equipment
has been checked and working properly. If needed, backwash or
clean filter according to instructions. Occasional small use
of chlorine product to non-chlorine shock helps remove organic
waste and excessive algae growths. Follow recommended dosage
for your water feature size.
Maintenance: To maintain water clear and algae-free,
add the proper Fountec initial dosage under "Clean"
for your fountain size. The addition of Fountec "Weekly
Dosage" makes for easier maintenance by keeping water clear
Cleanup: For maximum effectiveness, water
containing heavy algae growth should be cleaned of excess debris.
Add and dispense proper Fountec dosage under "Visible Algae"
directly to water. Superchlorination or shock treatments synergize
with Fountec to improve the control of algae. In fountains;
a non-chlorine shock is recommended,follow label instructions.
Operate circulation pump during algae clean-up period to ensure
through distribution and maximum cleanup effect.
