For sterile tank maintenance
Silver Bullet Roots is a peroxide treatment that has been greatly enhanced by cleverly combining it with silver. The chemical bonding of the silver makes the peroxide much more effective at killing microbes and allows the peroxide to be active for much longer.
It works so well because it contains colloidal silver. The silver ions break down the barriers that bacteria use as protection, allowing them to be destroyed by the H2O2 molecules which the colloidal silver stabilises, extending their life and activity. This makes it up to 100,00x more effective than H2O2 alone. It is adept at destroying biofilm, which is normally a breeding ground for bacteria.
Over time, there is a slight natural decomposition of the silver-stabilised H2O2, coupled with the sterilisation reaction, this leads to the release of dissolved oxygen into the nutrient solution. This increase in oxygen produces an increase in nutrient uptake in the roots, stimulating growth rates.
Silver Bullet Roots lasts 5 times longer than standard peroxide treatments meaning you don’t have to keep adding it to your tank to maintain its effects. Used at a lower dosage than other hydrogen peroxide treatments, Silver Bullet Roots is highly cost effective.
WHY USE SILVER BULLET ROOTS?
- Kills 99.99% fungi, spores, bacteria, viruses, protozoa and algae
- Breaks down and removes Bioflim
- Non-toxic and non-corrosive, won’t damage your plants
- Promotes oxygen around the roots, keeping them healthy
- Cost effective as only a low dosage required
- Stays active in your tank for up to 5 weeks
- Neutral pH level
- Helps prevent spread of microbes and their spores
- EPA and FDA approved
Make sure to use appropriate protective gear, such as eye goggles, face protection and gloves when handling this substance. If the product is accidentally inhaled, move to fresh air space, and if respiratory problems occur, consult a medical professional immediately. If the product makes contact with eyes or skin, rinse out with water carefully and consult a doctor if feeling unwell.
Silver Bullet Roots kills all types of microbe, both friendly and pathogenic. This makes Silver Bullet Roots incompatible with organic/biological gardening as these methods of growing depend on beneficial microbes to break down food for the plant.
For seedlings/cuttings: Dilute at 2ml per 10 litres if theres no root disease or at 4ml per 10 litres if there is/has been
For preventing problems early on: Dilute 4ml per 10 litres
For established plants: Dilute 6ml per 10 litres, every 1-2 weeks
For diseased plants: Dilute 8ml per 10 litres then repeat for 5 days before reverting to 6ml per 10 litres
For flushing and cleaning systems: Dilute 2ml per 10 litres then flush the pipe with clean water
