If a variety of factors cause a body of water to become unbalanced, cyanobacteria (also known as blue algae) can very quickly multiply, displacing other species and rapidly worsening the condition of the body of water. CyanoClear releases hydrogen peroxide from sodium percarbonate and not only destroys the cell structure of the cyanobacteria by oxidation, but, unlike conventional methods, also renders the dangerous toxins produced by cyanobacteria harmless. The first effects begin to appear a few minutes after application, with the full effect coming into force against the released toxins within 48 hours. The water quality improves immediately and further spreading of the cyanobacteria is curbed – and ultimately stopped. If the correct dosage is used, other flora and fauna are not affected because pollutants are not produced and CyanoClear breaks down without leaving any residue.
