Gypsum can be used as a water treatment additive in many different areas and in different ways. It helps considerably to reduce the level of silt and mud build up by flocculating the clay present.
It assists in clarifying the water and has the ability to neutralise the pH of acidic waters and so improve the development of aquatic life.
