Why it is important to deal with Algae problems in these markets

Algae is an aquatic plant that is usually unicellular and contains chlorophyll, but does not have leaves, stems or roots. Water that is stagnant, has a high temperature or where a high concentration of nutrients exists is one of the most vulnerable environments for exponential algae growth.

Algae is known to cause perennial problems in a range of different areas including boats, ponds, lakes, ships, cooling towers and heating systems.

The presence of algae can have a significant negative impact including harm to fish, damage to boats, and damage to the environment, in addition to its unsightly appearance.
