Athena Cleanse is made from hypochlorous acid. This mild acid is derived from salt and a proprietary electrochemical treatment process. The result is a unique chemical with powerful oxidative properties which can be used to reduce mineral scale in irrigation systems. Key Features
How To UseSystem Maintenance:
- Non-toxic and non-nutritive - Safe to use on plants in and stage of growth
- Works to descale irrigation systems and decompose residual organic matter
- Effective as a final flush to remove mineral buildup (scale) in growing media and irrigation lines
- Very low TDS - Doesn't throw off mineral balance
- Keeps irrigation system cleaner and running efficiently longer
Irrigation systems that are regularly maintained with Athena Cleanse treatment will last longer and run more optimally throughout. This is because Cleanse helps break down mineral scale and other buildup that has been lodged in the system.Regular Use:
Use a dilute mixture of 2-5 mL per gallon water for regular maintenance.Severe Conditions:
Increase rate to 5-10 mL per gallon water for combatting severe reservoir and growing media conditions.RDWC and Other Recirculating Hydroponics Systems:
Any recirculating or deep water culture (DWC) irrigation system should use Athena Cleanse remove mineral residue and reduce scale.
Using Cleanse in a recirculating or DWC system helps break down materials with lower solubility ratings, such as mineral complexes that are no longer available to plants. Mineral buildup and lockout are major causes of nutrient deficiencies - solve these issues with Athena Cleanse.

Use Athena Cleanse at a rate of 5-10 mL/ gallon of water during the final flush stage to help reduce residual mineral buildup.
The mild acid used in Athena Cleanse does not impact plant growth or development, and as such, the product can be used to descale irrigation systems during all growth stages.
