Step-by-step instructions for use

zerogreen® green algae remover is very easy to use, we promise:

Step 1: Surface preparation

Start by removing coarse dirt such as foliage, leaves, heavy moss growth or other debris from the area. The green algae remover should be able to be applied directly to the surface to be treated.

Step 2: Adjust the mixing ratio

Mix the zerogreen® green growth remover with water in the desired ratio. We recommend diluting it to a maximum of 1:10. Use our recommendations in the consumption calculator or test the product on a small area. For light green growth, a ratio of 1:10 is usually sufficient. For heavier soiling, it may be necessary to adjust the mixing ratio.

Professional tip: The zerogreen® green algae remover with long-term protection is also ideal after high-pressure cleaning to prevent rapid re-greening.

Step 3: Apply solution

Apply the prepared solution evenly and generously to the area to be treated. A pressure sprayer is ideal for this as it offers the best cost-benefit ratio. Alternatively, the solution can also be applied with a watering can or spray gun. Consumption can vary considerably here.

Pro tip: Use a pressure sprayer made entirely of plastic (including the nozzle) to avoid corrosion.

Step 4: Exposure time

After application, the surface should be protected from rain and moisture for at least 24 hours. Once dry, the surface can be used normally again by humans and animals.

Professional tip: If the dirt is particularly dirty, the effect can be increased by brushing it in. Please also ensure that the product does not get into areas where animals live, such as fish ponds.

Step 5: Duration of action

The active ingredient in the green algae remover is released over a longer period of time. This means that dirt does not disappear immediately, but gradually. The duration depends on the intensity of the dirt and the mixing ratio.

Professional tip: For immediately visible results and long-lasting protection at the same time, we recommend the combined use of our green algae remover Turbo for cleaning and then the green algae remover with long-term protection for sustainable care.

Step 6: Aftercare

If green deposits reappear, the zerogreen® green deposit remover with long-term protection can be used immediately for follow-up treatment.

Pro tip: Regular use, for example every year in spring, even without visible green deposits, keeps the area permanently clean and saves costs and effort in the long term. We offer automatic delivery at the desired interval and you can save money at the same time!
