SonicSolutions®, the leader in ultrasonic algae control, offers you a chemical-free lake and pond management option that helps preserve the beauty and ecological balance of aquatic habitats.
The SonicSolutions transducer, submerged just beneath the surface, is programmed to generate ultrasonic waves that inhibit the growth and spread of lake and pond algae.
The SonicSolutions Algae Control device emits directional ultrasonic waves that “fan out” at approximately 180˚ from the front of the transducer (See Figure 1). It is important to install your device to provide the optimal exposure of the ultrasonic waves to the body of water you are treating. You should position the unit in a minimum of 2’ of water, close to the edge of the water to minimize the area behind the unit that will not receive the ultrasonic waves.
Large installations and certain shapes of ponds or lakes may require installation of more than one device. Multiple devices can be installed at opposite sides of a lake or pond or attached together pointing in different directions, depending on your site requirements (See Figure 2).
The SonicSolutions device, like all ultrasonic devices, is a “line of sight” technology. Ultrasonic sound waves will not go around corners or navigate around islands that may be in your body of water. Ultrasonic sound waves reflect or bounce off of hard surroundings, such as concrete, rip-rap, and large rocks, islands, as well as submerged obstructions such as sandbars and weirs. Even thick weeds can block or degrade the signal strength.
(See Figures 3 and 4).
Make sure that the placement of the device takes into account any potential reductions in the water level in order to ensure optimal pond algae control. You must have a minimum of 2’ of water at all times. (See Figure 5)
