The system’s best manufacturing practices (BMP) remove dissolved metals in a simple, easy-to-use configuration. The Zinc-B-Gone System is typically installed above ground in line with a rooftop downspout, and its three models come scalable up to 1200 GPM for rooftops 0.5 acres and up. Targeted metals include copper, zinc, iron, lead, aluminum, nickel, cadmium, and other metals.
