Oxygen gets rid of algae

“At first, the filters silted up with algae every few days, now we practically no longer need to clean them. In addition, the root development is very good. We see a lot more roots and practically no more dead material. "

“At first, the filters silted up with algae every few days, now we practically no longer need to clean them. In addition, the root development is very good. We see a lot more roots and practically no more dead material. "

Summarized in two sentences, that is the state of affairs in the garden at Andy Domen of Douglas Tree Nursery. He recently installed a number of Agrona Oxybull aeration systems in the water basin. These are a kind of mats that are placed on the bottom of the basin and are connected to a compressor. Oxygen is forced through a membrane and binds to the water molecules, making the water oxygenated. In addition, the Oxybull ensures movement of the water. Both factors - more oxygen and movement - counteract algae growth, provide more vital water, kill harmful bacteria for the crop and prevent the formation of sludge on the soil and in the pipes to a great extent.

 

 

“The effect was noticeable almost immediately,” continues Andy. “The growth of algae has been greatly inhibited, making the water visibly cleaner (see photos / videos). We kept busy, especially in good weather. The algae sometimes grew so fast that we had to clean the filters every other day. After installing the Oxybulls, this was very quickly reduced to just once every 10 days and now it is practically no longer necessary. ”

Andy had three Oxybulls placed at one of the two locations, and six at the other. Moreover, he recently completely renovated that last basin. “We had quite a bit of trouble in the past
Phytophthora, Pythium and other (water) fungi. Because we recycle our water, it is difficult to get it out of the system, and most of the crops are left in our garden for a relatively long time. We have been looking forward to a solution for a long time, but never really found anything. In short, we are very helped with this. ”
