Aluminum Sulfate

Aluminum Sulfate, or alum, has long been used as a water clarifying agent and rapid phosphorus binder. Depending on weather conditions, several applications throughout the season may be required.  Alum has the potential to rapidly drop water pH.  This rapid change has the potential to negatively impact aquatic life.  Monitoring pH during applications is highly recommended.

  • Use 50 lbs./acre-foot of water for phosphorus reduction
  • Use 125 lbs./acre-foot of water for water clarification
  • Caution: Highly Corrosive
  • Avoid a rapid drop in pH by applying with a buffering agent

The reactions of many chemicals cause rapid decomposition of heavy vegetation growth and/or greatly reduce the oxygen content of the water, causing distress and possible death to the fish.
