Re: barnacle rid in Australia

I could be wrong, but I believe it works in conjunction with the antifouling.

Yes, well, you still need to use anti fouling paint in conjunction with the ultrasonic systems. They are not a replacement for it.

Yeah, right.

Barnacle Rid
Just went back and looked at their web site and yep, that's the claim. But according to the diver this bottom does have mossy, slime stuff that is prevalent here in the Chesapeake. He said it was thin and easily brushed off with his hands. I thought the fact that he couldn't find any hard growth pretty impressive...

This isn't an ultrasonic system though. Seems to be more of an electrolytic system.

I stand corrected.
