Often its usage is labor-intensive and therefore very costly. Additionally, large quantities of copper sulfate are usually required to achieve a concentration of dissolved CuSO4 • 5H20 sufficient to control algae. Long-term control is nearly impossible as the copper quickly settles to the bottom, often requiring further applications. Chem-A-Co, Inc. now manufactures a fully dissolving copper-sulfate product which offers significant improvements over other copper-based algicides. This product - SCI-62®, a liquid copper treatment - has many amazing advantages over bluestone and other liquid algicides. SCI-62® self-disperses both horizontally and vertically throughout the water column. Copper concentrations are easy to measure, providing the correct treatment rates for targeted species of algae and bacteria. Pre-treatment is now possible because SCI-62® can be applied before algae can start to bloom. Long-term control is now possible without constant application, thus relieving concerns of the contamination of sediments due to the extended use of copper. SCI-62® is registered as an algicide/bactericide with the U.S. EPA, and certified to ANSI-NSF Standard 60 as a drinking water additive.
