NATURE OF THE RESTRICTION: This product must be used only in the manner authorized; consult local pesticide regulatory authorities about use permits that may be required.
RESTRICTED USES: Product is to be used for control of algae in municipal water supplies (bodies of water that may be used as a source of potable water before it is purified for drinking purposes). Do not apply or allow discharge to lakes, flowing water or ponds with outflow.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Apply 1 litre Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution to 60,000 litres of water for 1 ppm of copper.
Commercial Use: Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution is an innovative formulation which provides an excellent control of algae in ponds, dugouts, lagoons and potable water storage tanks.
Use Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution for the control of ammonia and suppression of bacterial Odors in fermenting substrates, organic waste holding tanks, sewage lagoons, animal manure pits and similar applications.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Dilution of 1: 60,000 (16 ML per 1,000 litres of water) provide 1 part per million (ppm) of a biologically active form of copper (Cu++). Use a copper test kit to determine existing copper level before adding Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution. Do not exceed 1.0 ppm of copper in drinking water.
Ponds, Lagoons, Dugouts:
Product is to be applied for control of algae in industrial and farm ponds. Apply 1 litre of Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution to 60,000 - 600,000 litres of water. Water condition and the extent of active micro-organisms present determine the effective application rate. For permanent algae control maintain 0.5 to 1.0 ppm Cu in the water. (Add l.6 mL of Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution per 1, 000 litres to increase Cu by 0.1 ppm).
Algaecide for animal drinking water tanks:
Apply 1 litre of Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution to 60,000 litres of water for prevention of algal bloom. Maintain a minimum of 0.7 ppm of copper++ in animal drinking water. Precaution Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution may break up deposits of accumulated waterline impurities which may cause digestive upset in animals. After treatment, flush waterlines with clean water daily for one week or until the water pipes are cleared out completely.
Bacterial odor control in liquid sewage and animal manure pits:
Application rates may vary depending on the amount of organic matter, characteristics of manure or sewage, extent of bacterial activity in the pits, and degree of desired odor reduction. Basic application rate is 1 litre of Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution in 30,000 litres of sewage. Several pit application points speed up dispersal. Odors should be reduced in a few days. Treat added sewage once a week at 1:30,000 ratio (32 ML per 1,000 litres of water). Treat manure lagoons 2 weeks before spraying on fields to reduce odorous air pollution.
Other organic (fermenting) sludge's:
Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution must be thoroughly mixed with sludge. Apply at the rate of 1 litre Think Purity Algaecide and Odor Control Solution to 20,000 - 30,000 litres of sludge.
