the sun is out, nitrate levels up and slipways are getting covered with slippery green stuff.

deck scrubbers are not up to it. chemicals are a problem in a drinking water res.

what is the solution?

Gerni on a trolley with a pump and either a long leccy lead or a small genset.

Picks up water from reservoir and washes it back there.

Non-trivial investment, but long term saving in scrubbing backaches, and bruised bums or worse from falls.

We staple chicken wire down to wood ramps.

I heard scattering the ash from freshly burned solos helps.

Think about it: do you really think adding more slime will help?
