    We use it regularly so think you've misread or misunderstood ...

    5L diluted will cover ~100-300m depending on severity and type of surface.

      Dilution and Coverage

  • Interestingly, in the USA, zinc chloride or zinc sulphate can be used for mosscontrol on hardsurfaces.  http://www.corrys.com/All-Products/moss-b-ware/overview/ ; Unfortunately, not authorised for use here (neither is bleach  I'd guess)...... which is a pity as incredibly effective keeping areas clear for as long as MMC-PRO + it works out about a tenth the cost with these chemicals easy to purchase on Ebay .

      I'm amazed that people would go looking for and use non-approved products, especially from places like eBay - who knows what you are getting unless from an authorized source...but then they wouldn't be selling unathorised products ...would they ?

      Cost is not everything - health, environment etc should be coming up top of selction criteria - especially if you're running a business....

        AlgoClear Pro is worth using too, much lower dilution rate to mmc pro, though more expensive. Works out about the same price as MMC, though 4 times as strong.

      • Agree but as I said, is bleach or sodium hypochlorite authorised for this purpose?   Is MMC-PRO no longer listed as a moss controller/killer so is that being used incorrectly?  Might have got this wrong though. On a side-note, don't think the USA is too worried about pollution to be honest with all their gas-guzzling vehicles and Donald Trump at the helm:)  `

  • I see you mentioned sodium hydrochloride, from past experience for myself it does mix glyphosate, but eats away at knapsack parts especially diaphram and before you know it's all down the back of your legs, that was cooper and pegler sprayers, know if I use sodium hydrochloride I use the cheap sprayers from b&q for for fence paint. I used mmc thought it was great(4:1)
