Fountains and Water Features
The Green Bullet is for use in Fountains and Water Features to clear algae and keep it clear.
Fountains and water features are very unique in that they have a tremendous amount of water movement but a much smaller volume of water than an average pool. In Chemistry we learned that all elements will return to their natural elemental form in time. Chlorine is a gas and by super cooling it we change it into a liquid. When exposed to the elements this liquid chlorine will always return to a gas form; in addition what it leaves behind when it returns to a gas is food for another algal bloom. That is why a green fountain that is “Shocked” with chlorine and left unchecked will turn completely green again within a week or two. The Green Bullet is not a gas but rather a proprietary blend of polymeric salts. Salt and other minerals remain in the water even through evaporation. Because the Green Bullet is not a gas it will remain in the body of water indefinitely and continue to stay active because of the rapid water movement that keep it mixed. The Green Bullet actually is a vehicle for the algae as it carries the algae to the filter and re-liquefies at that point and goes back into the body of water to work again to grab more particulate and bring it to the filter.
Accelerated levels of algae in fountains and water features are caused by three key factors – abundant food, light and water. By removing and or altering one or more of these life essential elements, it creates an unstable environment for the algae to grow, thus eliminating it naturally!
APPLICATION – Fountains and Water Features
We have developed a concentrated version of our traditional the Green Bullet that does not have a foaming agent as that would be an adverse reaction in a fountain or water feature.
For fountains and water features we have quart bottles that will treat a total of up to 16,000 Gallons and can be added directly into the fountain near the intake or outlet (whichever is more accessible). The water will take on a milky white appearance that will clear in 24 hours leaving the Fountain or Water Feature crystal clear. Add as needed from then on, typically every 4 – 6 months for continued clarity.
1 Quart Treats up to 16,000 gallons*
One treatment will last from 4-6 months depending on the weather conditions.
CALCULATING FOUNTAIN AND WATER FEATURE GALLONS:
Measure the Fountain in sections using the following formula. (All numbers are an average). Length (inches) x width (inches) x depth (inches) = total / 231 = total average gallons. Add all sections up to figure total gallons. You may need to add some gallons to the total if there is a lot of plumbing to consider, for example if the pump and equipment is a long distance from the actual fountain or feature.
