Products - supplied by R&M

R&M Blitz Clear is a natural product (calcium carbonate) that consists of the remains of billions
of tiny fossilized marine invertebrates. The product is processed into minute particles
averaging only 5 microns (5 thousandths of a millimetre) in diameter. The smallness of the
particles is one of the key properties that provides the product benefits listed below. R&M Blitz
Clear can be used to treat organic sludge in lakes, ponds, reservoirs, canals, streams & rivers.

Product Benefits

  • Improves water clarity by settling suspended solids.
  • Decreases organic matter in sludge by increasing natural microbial activity, thus reducing sludge depth.
  • Increases oxygenation in anaerobic (without oxygen) sludges.
  • Counteracts acidity in water & sludge.
  • Reduces foul smelling gases, a by-product of anaerobic sludge.
  • Can boost the aquatic food chain as organic matter is turned in to microbes.
  • Provides essential calcium.

How the Prodcut Works

The tiny particles in R&M Blitz Clear act as a flocculant which aggregates tiny organic particles and algae in the water. These aggregates then sink to the bottom of the water column and form a layer on the sludge. Cloudy or green water thus becomes clearer allowing greater penetration of sunlight. The R&M Blitz Clear on the surface layers of the sludge provides an ideal habitat for the microorganisms which degrade the organic matter in the sludge. The porous nature of the particles carries trapped oxygen to the sludge which is essential in the aerobic breakdown of organic matter. Anaerobic sludges tend to go acidic, which slows down degradation rates, and the calcium carbonate in R&M Blitz Clear neutralizes the acidity thus promoting degradation activity.

Product Use

R&M Blitz Clear is best applied in spring and thereafter every 6 months. A typical application rate is 250g per m2 or 25 kg for every 100 m2 (125 sq yd). The product can be applied either directly to the water surface, although mixing is essential (e.g. by an out-board motor) or as a suspension sprayed over the water surface,please contact us if you require more information.

Environmental Safety

R&M Blitz Clear is non-hazardous, non-corrosive, and harmless to humans, animals, aquatic life and plants. Some people are hypersensitive or allergic to some compounds and therefore direct contact with skin and eyes should be avoided.
