How do I remove tough algae and stain from my pontoons?


Robert Warden asked:

Please help! I pulled my Manitou pontoon boat out last week and had grass growing all over the bottom of the aluminum pontoons. I guess that’s why it slowed down so much. I spent 2 hours scrubbing a 3 foot section and still can’t get it clean. There must be an easier and quicker way. What would you recommend? I’m desperate.

Algex will break the bond between the Aluminum and the algae so you can get it off without killing yourself. This Step by Step video will show you how to blast the algae off in minutes. When you get it clean, protect the pontoons with VS721 to prevent algae from attaching and make clean up a lot easier.

Thanks for your question,
Captain Aurora
