ECS Products :: Gatton Queensland - a tethered modular, floating cover providing algal control and saving water by evaporation control.
Task: To install a partial cover to control algae and reduce evaporation losses whilst allowing easy access for entry and exit of water being used to irrigate avocado trees. The effluent water, being rich in nutrients created a problem with the growth of algae which blocks the filters of the irrigating equipment.
Result: There has been a significant reduction in the algal growth and more water saved due to the floating cover reducing evaporation . This module can be replicated many times to cover large areas.
