Coptrol is a next generation algaecide, it will clear up existing algae, including toxic blue green algae. Coptrol offers a new approach to the control of an algal bloom (free floating or filamentous) in potable water supplies, animal drinking troughs, aquaculture, farm dams/ponds, flood irrigation bays, fountains, gardens, golf courses, hydroponics, irrigation channels, lakes, mining, microspray & drip irrigation, nurseries, ornamental fish ponds, poultry shedding, power stations, reservoirs, rice crops, sewage treatment, turf farms, waste water, water cooling towers, waterways, irrigation canals & other aquatic environments.

Coptrol can be used wherever algae pose a risk, problem or cause a nuisance. Coptrol can be used in water supplies used for cattle & livestock watering. Coptrol will not harm livestock, birds, fish or domestic pets when used in accordance with the label. Coptrol is a non-corrosive viscous liquid that will not corrode metal pumps, fountains or irrigation equipment.

The volume of the water body should be calculated before treating with Coptrol. Do this by measuring the surface area & multiplying it by the average depth down to 1 meter (you can ignore depths below 1 meter).

Application Rates:

TheCoptrol application rate depends on the degree of algae infestation, the kinds of algae present & the depth of water to be treated.

For Tanks & Troughs: 
Apply 2 to 5 mL Coptrol per 1,000 litres of water to be treated.

For Dams, Ponds and Water Impoundments, including potable water storages: 
Apply 4.2 to 8.4 litres of Coptrol per 1,000 square meters of water surface area at an average water depth of 1 meter or greater, or 5 to 10L of Coptrol per 1 mega-litre of water.

How to Apply: 
Simply dilute the measured amount of Coptrol 1 part product to 10 or 20 parts water. Once diluted it can be applied from horticulture sprayers, knapsack sprayer or even from a bucket, apply evenly over the water’s surface.

For Best Results:
Apply Coptrol in bright sunlight on a calm, wind-free day evenly to the water’s surface. Ensure the water temperature is not below 16 degrees Celsius. In ponds containing fish, ensure the carbonate hardness of the water is lower than 50ppm. Treat the shoreline first to avoid trapping fish in the shallows and only treat 1/3 of the area at a time to avoid oxygen depletion. Allow 10-15 days for oxygen levels to recover before continuing treatment.

How often do I need to use it? Generally one application is enough. However, if the algae infestation is severe, re-treat after 10-14 days as necessary.

Always read the label directions & use as directed by the label.
