Water Weed Mat

EASY INSTALLATION

One person can easily install the heavy-duty picture frame design Water Weed Mat by either standing in the water or by using a small boat.

WARNING: Caution should be taken not to install the HD Water WEED Mat (picture frame design) in an area where it might be contacted by a boat propeller. Damage may occur to the boat and HD Water Weed Mat. A marker buoy warning sticker is supplied with the HD Water Weed Mat and should be deployed to alert of a potential hazard.

HD Water Weed Mat Picture frame design Instructions (with weight connectors)

Roll out the HD Water Weed Mat near where it will be installed. It is best to do this on a day with as little wind as possible for ease of installation.

To assemble the weights lay out the weights in five rows . Connect the row of weights with one of the10 straight weight connectors by sliding a weight connector on to the end of a mat weight until it hits the weight stop in the center of the weight connector. Slide the other end of the weight connector on to the next weight so that you have attached the two weights together. Do the same with the last weight so that you have three weights attached together in a row.

Slide each row of connected weights into one of the four outside mat pocket. You should now have the outside of the mat framed with weights. Starting in any corner slide one end of the corner connector (the curved connector) on to one end of a weight and slide the other end on to the adjacent weight so that the connected weights form a 90 degree angle. Be certain to slide the weight in about 3 inches into the corner connectors. Continue connecting all four corners in the same manner. It can be helpful to be sure that the weights you are connecting are pushed back as far as possible into the opposite end. Once you have the outside of your mat connected slide the last row of weights into the center pocket and secure it in place at both ends with the plastic tie provided. Tie a retrieval line (not supplied) through the corner that will be the closest to shore or dock for help in moving and / or removing at a later time. Apply a Water Weed Mat caution sticker to a plastic milk jug (or other similar type floating device) and tie it to a rope or line. Tie the other end of the line to the corner that will be the farthest from shore for the best visibility for approaching boaters.

One person can easily install the HD Water Weed Mat by either standing in the water or by using a small boat. Pull one end of the HD Water Weed Mat into the water and to the area you want to cover. It is easiest to do this by grabbing hold of the HD Water Weed Mat by the mat weights (the one with the buoy attached) in about the middle of that row. Allow the mat to sink to the bottom. Tie the retrieval line to the shore or dock for ease in locating the Water Weed Mat in the future.

It is recommended that the HD WATER WEED MAT be installed in no shallower than three feet of water to avoid the possible disruption of the mat by excessive wave action. For the most extreme cases you may need to add additional weights. Lake rocks make a good choice and are often close by.

Leave the HD Water Weed Mat in place until all vegetation under it has been neutralized. You can then move it to another location to start the process over again. In most cases you are able to move the Mat about every four weeks. Your situation may vary.

The HD Water Weed Mat should be removed from the water at least every season. Remove the weights and store them separately. The HD Water Weed Mat should be cleaned by washing off with a hose and dried and stored out of the sun so that it will be in good shape for next season.
