The BUWAcover Silofloat is a unique and complete solution for protection against algae growth.
Users of water storage systems are often confronted with algae growth in their tanks, which can obstruct the irrigation system and influence the water quality. The cover is made from special ‘solarfloat’ floating foam that does not need any additional support and also minimizes algae growth. The silver and black solarfloat material covers the tank and and its contents almost completely. Due to the closed structure of the foam, sunlight is blocked, but small holes in the material allow rainwater into the tank. This prevents the BUWAcover Silofloat from collapsing under the weight of rainwater. The cover is primarily used as an outdoor solution for tanks with a maximum diameter of 10 meters.
This BUWAcover Silofloat package is designed as a complete cover system, and contains all you need for installation. It includes polyethylene (PE) tubes, used to create a ring around the foam for additional strength, connectors and installation parts. The floating foam cover will be fastened to the PE floating tubes by tie rods.
