Siltex is a calcium carbonate product that is highly porous therefore highly absorbant and effective. Siltex is a natural product therefore has no harmful effect and completely safe to the environment and water body in question.
Siltex is a fantastic product to apply as it has so many benefits.
Siltex decreases amount of silt by breaking down organic matter
Siltex increases the amount of calcium carbonate available which is used by invertebrates and macrophytes
Siltex can help decrease weed/blanket weed by promoting the growth of other plant and bug species
Siltex improves the stability of the waters pH and helps bring it to a more neutral level
Siltex can impove water clarity and definitly improves biodiversity
As a rule of thumb it is essential to apply water to the whole of the water body and not just the 'worst effected' areas. It is also recommended that after the first application it should be closely monitored and generally speaking two applications of Siltex should be applied.
Price depends on size of water and location, Siltex need not cost the earth and can be usually carried out within a day. Siltex applications are best carried out during the cooler months of the year (October to April) to minimise disruption to the biology of the water body in question, however Siltex can be applied all year round if strictly necessary.
