Clean Algae Fast From Your Fountain – Use a Non-Toxic Product

Here is how to use non-toxic certified organic Stain Solver to clean any indoor or outdoor fountain:

  • Turn off the fountain water – allow surfaces to dry for best results
  • Apply Stain Solver solution using a hand-held sprayer and spray on all the green algae areas
  • Allow the Stain Solver solution to do its thing for 15-20 minutes
  • Scrub the dead algae off and repeat if necessary

Mixing Instructions:

Take one quart of warm or hot tap water and add 4 tablespoons of Stain Solver powder. Stir until all powder is dissolved. Failure to do this will create frustration as powder can clog the tips of sprayers. Just stir for a couple of minutes and ensure your happiness.

Best Practices Tips:

Wear goggles or protective glasses to prevent getting the solution in your eyes when scrubbing.  Treat the fountain reservoir as needed with a couple of dry ounces of Stain Solver spread across the surface of the reservoir and rocks if needed. The Stain Solver will not cause any harm to pumps and piping.

There is no way to predict the frequency of treatment. Every fountain will be different.

Hi, I’m Tim Carter, the founder of Stain Solver and today I want to show you how simple it is to use Stain Solver to get algae from exterior surfaces.

You can use it to remove algae from vinyl siding, wood siding, concrete patios, deck railings, decking, you name!

Let’s take a look at this deck. Right now you can see right here the algae has coated the railing and down here on the decking, you can see algae actively growing. Yesterday, I went ahead and cleaned this part of the railing and the decking so it would be dry to be able to show you the dramatic differences between the before and after.

It’s really, really simple to use Stain Solver to get algae from this railing and deck. I’m going to show you right now to use Stain Solver on an exterior surface.

All you have to do is follow the directions on the label. Mix eight ounces of the powder per gallon of warm water, stir it until dissolved and then, I like to pour it into a hand pump sprayer, just like this. And all you have to do is spray it and watch what happens watch how it starts to foam up very quickly on the algae.

Yeah – look at that! You can start to see the white foam and it’s really that simple. You just get it nice and wet and then all you have to do is let it sit for maybe 10-15 minutes.

Let Stain Solver do most of the work while the stain solvers soaking.

Let’s talk a little bit about scrub brushes, because you’re going to need one to get really professional results.

Here’s three of them. There are different shapes different sizes and they do different things. I prefer the big traditional scrub brush for the wide-open decking. This handheld brush works really great on the vertical pickets of the railing, and this little one gets in all the tight areas. So use different scrub brushes. You’re going to get really great results.

The Stain Solver has soaked for about 10 or 15 minutes. I’d like to go ahead and put a little bit on the brush itself. We’ve got the railing and the decking nice and wet with a solution. I’m just going to scrub a little bit. You get the idea.

Yeah – it comes right off. Look at that – you can see it right here. Just the algae comes right off, and of course right here look at the decking.

Oh yeah! So let’s rinse it. You can see how well that works right there. Look at that!

There’s some before-and-after where I didn’t scrub but you pretty much get the point. All you have to do is apply it, scrub it a little bit, rinse it with clear water, and you’re good to go.

One last thing. Remember Stain Solver doesn’t hurt any of the vegetation around your house. Go ahead and use it now.

I’m Tim Carter for Stain Solver.
