    ion Gen question

    Hi everyone..
    I am interested in the ion Gen copper ion system
    But have 1 question, the only place I can install it
    Is right before a 100 gal tub of bio mat filters..
    Will the copper get trapped here or is it fully disolved
    In the water and make it to the main pond regardless? ?

    Thanks for any help..

    The Cu ions generated should make it into the pond and the algae areas just fine. To me the most important part of an ion gen install is measuring the copper levels with the test strip and being sure the pH and pond alkalinity are right for the Ion Gen. We have a lot of customers install their Ion Gen at the skimmer discharge that pumps water into our BioFalls which is similar to your situation. The Cu levels should be low as the Cu generated is taken up by the algae. So if you see low algae and read zero Cu on your test strip that's exactly right for your operating range. I'll post a link to our instructions for more details. Hope this helps.
