Airmax® EcoBoost® PRx

Phosphate Control

Permanently Binds Free Reactive Phosphorus (FRP)
Improves Water Quality & Clarity
Clarifies Water Without Impacting pH

 

Overview



EcoBoost PRx is a proprietary blend of naturally occurring phosphate binders designed to permanently bind free reactive phosphorus (FRP). EcoBoost PRx is designed to bind phosphates quickly, safely, and effectively making them unusable as a food source for weeds and algae. Professional strength EcoBoost PRx will not affect pH levels has no water use restrictions and is safe for use in lakes, ponds, lagoons, and other aquatic environments.

Improves Clarity

The natural phosphate binders in EcoBoost PRx work within the water column to clear up cloudy or murky water resulting from storm runoff, chemical fertilizers, organic decomposition, and chemical herbicide or algaecide treatments. The highly effective, all-natural phosphate binders found in EcoBoost PRx eliminate the need for heavy metal treatments.

Excessive Phosphates Fuel Poor Water Quality and Algae Blooms

Phosphorus is the main nutrient that supports the growth of aquatic plants, and it is a natural part of the aquatic ecosystem.

Phosphates enter a pond or lake from leaves, twigs, grass clippings, fish waste, other organic matter, and storm runoff, which carries fertilizers and other contaminants that can begin to disrupt the natural aquatic ecosystem. Human activity is increasing phosphate levels at a dramatic rate and making headlines around the world.

High levels of phosphates can cause toxic algae blooms, rampant weed growth, and poor water quality. Unless phosphates are controlled, successful aquatic management is limited.

EcoBoost PRx is designed to bind excess phosphates quickly, safely, and effectively making them unusable as a food source for algae and weeds. EcoBoost PRx is providing a natural solution for excess phosphates where there were previously only heavy metal solutions. Heavy metals (such as treatments with aluminum sulfate) negatively affect pH levels in aquatic environments.

Fish, Pet, Livestock & Wildlife Friendly

EcoBoost PRx may be applied to lakes, ponds, and lagoons used for irrigation and/or aquaculture. Water treated with EcoBoost PRx may be used for recreation, fishing, and other activities immediately after treatment. Safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife, and the environment.

Directions for Use

  1. Determine treatment area as follows: [Length (ft) x Width (ft) x Average Depth (ft)] / 43560 = Acre-feet
  2. Measure initial FRP (free reactive phosphorus) with your preferred test kit.
  3. Use the chart below to determine the amount of product required.
  4. For large applications over 10 acre-feet, please contact Airmax at (866) 424-7629 for site-specific treatment rates.

DOSAGE RATES

FRP Level
(mg/L)
Dosage Rate
(lbs per acre-foot)
0.1 to 0.2 20
0.2 to 0.3 30
0.3 to 0.4 40
0.4 to 0.5 50

When to Apply

For best results, apply EcoBoost PRx when plants and algae are minimal or not present. If algae or aquatic plants are present, it is recommended to apply EcoBoost PRx after performing an algaecide and/or herbicide application and only after plants and algae have fallen from the water column. This ensures the maximum amount of FRP are present within the water column before applying Ecoboost PRx.

Use EcoBoost PRx as an initial or reset application early in the spring or any time phosphates become a problem, such as following heavy rain. Use EcoBoost PRx as a maintenance application to continually bind excessive phosphates in the water column and to maintain water quality.

How to Apply

Mix EcoBoost PRx with water to make a slurry and apply with a high-volume tank sprayer to the surface of the waterbody. It is important to distribute EcoBoost PRx uniformly for best results.

Water Use Restrictions

EcoBoost PRx may be applied to lakes, ponds, and lagoons used for irrigation and/or aquaculture. Water treated with EcoBoost PRx may be used for recreation, fishing, and other activities immediately after treatment. Safe for recreational ponds, horses, livestock, birds, pets, fish, wildlife, and the environment. EcoBoost PRx has no water temperature restrictions and may be used year-round to control phosphates.
