Algaphite Bio

The six species of naturally occurring bacteria in Algaphite Bio are specifically selected to reduce the levels of phosphate and nitrates in water which contribute to the growth of aquatic algae and blanket weed in lakes and ponds. Helping to improve the visual appearance of these water bodies as well as promoting an improved balance of flora and fauna within the water system.

Algaphite Bio is available in two options, a 500 ml liquid for dispensing and pouring into the water as well as 200 g sachets designed to be evenly distributed across the surface of larger bodies of water.
