What does 100% Biodegradable mean?
A simple explanation would be that if you saturated and area of soil with a chemical that is not bio-degradable, that soil would no longer be able to support bacterial life. If you saturated the same amount of a Triton Marine product on the same area, that soil would be able to support bacterial life in less than 10 days.
Can I wash my boat when it is in the water/marina?
Our products are safe for direct release into fresh waterways in small quantities, assuming the effluent does not contain harmful materials (metals, etc). We always recommend you follow your local marina’s policies regarding cleaning your boat in the water and use your best judgement. Always dispose of a chemical in a proper manner, even if it is a safe chemical.
