I can see green algae on my mineral stones in the bottom tank of my Alps Water Filter, how can I clean this and is it harmful?
Green algae is not poisonous. In fact, various species are being examined as food sources, since they are the most efficient plants at trapping sunlight over a given, large area. It is unsightly however.
Green algae forms when your Alps Water Filter is in direct sunlight or just getting too much light in general; hot humid weather does not help either. Firstly remove the mineral stones and put them in a saucepan with enough water to cover and then boil them for at least six minutes, strain and let them dry in the sun. While this is happening, wash your water tank with soap and water, rinse well.
If you cannot find a shady part of the house to have your Alps Water Filter then try wrapping a dark blue colour paper around the bottom and top water tanks, this will stop sunlight creating more algae.
