K-Tea is liquid algaecide containing 8% metallic copper as the active ingredient. It is effective in controlling a broad range of green and blue-green algae including filamentous, planktonic and branched.

ALGAE CONTROLLED:  Blue-green algae including Anabaena, Aphanizomenon, Cylindrospermum, Gloeotrichia, Gomphosphaeria, Microcystis, Oscillatoria, Plectonema, Polycystis, Calothrix, Nostoc, Phormidium and Symploca.  Green algae including Botryococcus, Closterium, Coelastrum, Draparnaldia, Enteromorpha, Gloeocystis, Microspora, Spirogyra, Tribonema, Ulothrix, Zygnema, Ankistrodesmus, Chara, Chlorella, Cladophora, Crucigenia, Desmidium, Golenkinia, Nitella, Oocystis, Palmella, Pithophora, Scenedesmus, Staurastrum and Tetraedron.  Diatoms including Asterionella, Fragilaria, Gomphonema, Melosira, Navicula, Nitzschia, Stephanodiscus, Synedra, Tabellaria, Achnanthes, Cymbella and Neidium.  Flagellates including Ceramium, Cryptomonas, Dinobryon, Euglena, Glenodinium, Mallomonas, Synura, Uroglena, Volvox, Chlamydomonas, Eudorina, Haematococcus, Pandorina and Peridinium.  Visible reduction in algae growth should be observed in 24 - 48 hours following application with full effects of treatments sometimes taking 7 - 10 days depending on algae forms, weather, degree of infestation and water temperatures.

APPLICATION RATES:  Application rates range from 0.7 - 3.4 gal/acre-ft of water (0.2 - 1.0 ppm).  For effective control, proper concentration must be maintained for a minimum of three hours contact time.  For best results, K-Tea must be applied when conditions are calm and when algae first appear.  Even distribution of K-Tea in the water will improve algae control.  For help in determining acreage and volume, please visit our Acreage and Volume Calculations page.

USE RESTRICTIONS: Waters treated with K-Tea may be used for swimming, fishing, further potable water treatment, livestock watering or irrigating turf, ornamental plants or crops after treatment.  In Aquaculture, do not exceed a concentration of 0.4 ppm during any single application.  Do not use in waters containing Koi and goldfish. Not intended for use in small volume, garden pond systems.
