OCION PX10 / POLYDEX is an effective and environmentally responsible solution to algae and bacteria including cyanobacteria and their associated toxins in natural, drinking, industrial, and recreational waters. It also controls against undesirable microbes in irrigation systems and livestock drinking water including zebra mussels.

Municipal water managers and engineers rely on OCION PX10 / POLYDEX to combat unsightliness, foul odor and taste in potable and non-potable water systems caused by undesirable bacteria.

Using OCION PX10 / POLYDEX in agricultural and industrial water distribution systems, keeps the system clean, protects animal health and preserves water resources. If not treated effectively, bio-matter can clog pipes, filters, hoses and nozzles serving as a breeding ground for bacteria. Noxious gases generated from improperly managed algae and pond slime can be harmful to workers, plants and livestock.  See OCION Advantage.
