Case Study - Marineclere Pro

'...A one step solution to algae and mould problems for marinas...'

Premier Marinas Fuel Pontoon, Port Solent

The demarcation between treated and untreated areas is becoming increasingly visible.

A single application of MarineClere Pro was applied to the fuel pontoons shortly after all of the pontoons and ramped areas had been steam cleaned. The pontoons have been allowed to age in the 8 weeks since initial treatment.

The untreated areas are visibly becoming darker as the algae and lichen recolonise.

‘…I am very impressed with the results so far on the pontoon trial…it does what is says on the tin and the great news is that it is not slippery when you initially apply it…’

Applied to the Fuel Berth Pontoon, a section of the concrete apron in front of the fuel pumps and on an adjacent brick wall suffering from lichen growth...

…and after extensive trials lasting 12 months since the original application, Marineclere Pro has demonstrated effective control & protection against algal growth and has removed the majority of the lichen in all three trial locations.

‘…at Premier Marinas, we are delighted with the results - the pontoon has been clear of algae over the course of the trial; the results on the concrete and wall are particularly impressive.’

As well as treating and protecting against algal growth, Marineclere Pro prevents the propagation & colonisation of hard-shelled organisms such as lichen, a fungal plant that grows symbiotically with algae, leaving the dead shells to drop away with time.

‘…the commercial case is very straightforwards - treating the marina pontoons with Marineclere Pro is significantly more cost effective and quicker than pressure washing.’

How to use the hose end applicators - just plug in and spray

Cleresolutions products can be easily applied with our hose end applicator which attaches to any domestic or garden hose pipe using a standard HoselockTM connector or equivalent.

The applicator automatically dilutes the product as its applied.

As easy as watering your garden, just plug the applicator connector (A) into the connector oyour hosepipe and then turn the tap on. Turn the water feed tap (B) through 90 degrees to switch the water on and then turn product feed tap (C) through 90 degrees to start apply the product.

Wash the surface to be treated with a generous coating of Cleresolutions product making sure that the surface is thoroughly wetted. When you have completed applying the product turn taps B and C off and disconnect from the hosepipe. The surface should be left to dry.
