Undesired algae growth is a concern for natural ponds as well as hightech, floating, pond plants, golf ponds and park ponds. AQUAlog, made with xylite rolls, puts an end to this concern. Xylite is a fiber which offers a high degree of absorption because of its polarized structure. It naturally binds the nutrients of algae and other water pollutants and depletes the food chain for these unwanted pond inhabitants. The application is very easy: The readyto- use (xylite rolls) are simply secured around the edge of the pond, or in it as floating islands, and immediately begin their purification process. Nature instead of chemicals – this is one of the greatest benefits of xylite rolls.
Experimental measurements from the University of Cottbus.
Decreasing the phosphate content in the water within five days after the application of Xylit fiber rolls.
Algae use excess phosphates and nitrates in the water to grow and flourish. Xylit fiber rolls uses its superior surface area to bind these products and withdraw them from the water. Significant decreases of phosphate can be observed in the first five days following application. In addition there is rapid colonization of useful microorganisms. The result is cleaner water using a totally natural cleaning process.
In general wooden constructions or fascines in rivers suffer from a rapid biodegradation. Thus they require reworking or renewal after a couple of years. Xylit fiber rolls offer a durable and stable embankment protection. They also work as filters, absorb nutrients and are easily colonizable.
Flat water zones of standing waters usually have to be bordered and secured on the water side. Xylit fiber rolls are appropriate for this application as solid technical structures. They can be arranged in various design shapes, such as in pyramid shape. Alongside their ideal structural properties, they also offer benefits to standing waters due to their water purifying effect.
