do you have problems with barnacles, goose barnacles or any hard shell growth on your boat?

our copper ion electronic marine anti foul system will help you

Barnacle Rid uses copper electrodes coupled with our sophisticated computer controller to create copper ions that are released into the water, as a result, it creates a protective copper ion field around the hull and running gear (props & rudders), to stop barnacles, hard shell growth attaching and settling on the hull.

This copper ion field is green friendly and does not harm barnacles, put simply, it creates an environment undesirable to barnacles/hard shell larvae so they go elsewhere. Barnacle Rid is also safe for swimmers, unlike ultrasonic systems. Read comparative list about Ultrasonic Difference in the FAQ page.

Copper has been used for over 250 years to protect against barnacles, by copper sheathing the entire hull.(Copper sheathing was the practice of protecting the underwater hull of a ship or boat from the corrosive effects of saltwater and biofouling through the use of copper plates affixed to the outside of the hull. It was pioneered and developed by the Royal Navy during the 18th century), Barnacle Rid has created a simple to use, sophisticated computer controller to enhance that process making it affordable in today’s environment.
