Aquaritin is a non-toxic liquid formulation that
feeds and grows Diatoms native to your water body.
Algae removal simplified using biology.
What are Diatoms?
Diatoms are phytoplankton that live inside ‘glass houses’ – they have hard outer shells made of silicon and oxygen, the same elements that make up glass. These outer casings are made of two outer shells made of silicon and oxygen, the same elements that make up glass. Inside this shell is a single celled organism that photosynthesizes, releasing pure Oxygen micro bubbles. The Oxygen is used by aerobic bacteria to breakdown organic matter and consume the sludge. Higher DO levels result in tangible changes like cleaner water, reduction in BOD, lower coliform levels, elimination of foul odor, reduction in mosquito colonies in water and healthier aquatic life.

Independent research has conclusively established an inverse relationship between the presence of diatoms and Cyanobacteria or Blue-Green Algae. Diatoms are responsible for 20% of the oxygen produced on Earth. Because of their glass like structure, they need less light to photosynthesize and therefore photosynthesize faster and earlier in the day, outcompeting filamentous algae like the harmful Blue-Green algae (BGA) or or green algae for nutrients such as N and P. Highly mobile zooplankton feed on the diatoms and the fish feed on zooplankton thus completing the natural food chain in a healthy water body. The organics exit the water in the form of fish biomass. Diatoms increase dissolved oxygen by releasing nano bubbles of oxygen thus enhancing fish survival rate and improving fish health and vitality.
Aquaritin contains P, K, Fe, Mn, Ca, Mg, Zn, B, S, Mo and Co adsorbed on a Nano-Silica base. Diatoms require a large amount of silica in order to survive and thrive. This allows Aquaritin nutrients to be exclusively delivered to diatoms as other algae do not have the ability to consume silica. Aquaritin causes a growth of native Diatoms in all water bodies and strips nutrients from the water. Nuisance algae is thus easily controlled. Aquaritin is economical to apply and extremely effective in growing Diatoms. There is no product anywhere that is as concentrated as Aquaritin. One litre of Aquaritin treats 15 million litres of water once a month.
Tests in a river flowing at 280 million litres per day shows a 90% reduction in Ammonia, Nitrates, Phosphorus and BOD. Dissolved oxygen levels went up 383% over a 2 week period.” back_title_f_size=”18″ back_desc_f_size=”18″ front_box_color=”#b7ea3f” title_color=”#000000″ back_box_color=”#000000″ back_descr_color=”#b7ea3f”]
