Surface Algae Attack Bundle—20L Cupricide Algaecide, 20kg Biostim Tablets, 20L Biostim Accelerator

Rid your water surface of algae with this all-in-one attack and restore bundle. It includes everything you need to kill the algae on the spot and then clean up your water to prevent the algae returning.

Note: This bundle includes chemical, algaecide. Included in the kit are natural products that help reduce how much algaecide you need. 

Cupricide Algaecide is used to get straight to the source and kill the algae. At the same time, Biostim Accelerator, a natural biocatalyst, is applied to the water to speed up the effectiveness of the algaecide, thus reducing how much chemical you need. Biostim Accelerator also speeds up natural degradation processes, aka it stimulates “good” bacteria to get to faster work breaking down decaying material. Otherwise, the dead algae accumulate on the bottom becoming fertliser for next year’s algal bloom. The Biostim Tablets settle on the floor of your dam, feeding the “good microbes” enzymes and nutrients so their populations flourish. These “good” microbes eat any organic material on the floor of your dam. As well as cleaning up, this reduces the amount of nutrients in your water body. Fewer nutrients means less food available for algae. In other words, algae is going to have a much more difficult time returning. 

Chemical warning: we don’t advise using a chemical like algaecide or herbicide on its own, i.e. without natural probiotics, a biocatalyst or both. The reason is the chemical kills everything it touches, the “good” microbes too. This causes a two-factor problem: (1) the dead algae decays over time adding more nutrients to your water, which is fertiliser/food for future algal blooms, and (2) there are less “good” guys than before (the survivors) to compete for this additional food. Without probiotics, you enter a slippery slide: every year you get more and more invasive algae. Algae that arrive earlier, grows faster and is more immune to chemicals. Adding probiotics helps restore the damage done by the initial kill as well as get your water into a healthier condition long-term, aka less nutrient dense from a flourishing population of “good” bacteria. Conditions that algae cannot survive in.
