OptiMax boom keeps dock free of floating debris

Residential floating debris containment boomA resident in Michigan had a problem. Dead fish, seaweed and large floating debris was invading her waterfront area. The look and smell were awful. Efforts to keep areas around homes on the water previously involved using blowers to try to push the debris further out with little success. The homeowner felt that there must be a better solution.

To find that solution, she turned to the Internet. After searching for boom or containment systems for holding back debris she found Elastec. The homeowner said that Elastec and its line of debris containment boom really stood out. After consulting a sales representative, the homeowner purchased Optimax 1 containment boom and installed it around the residential waterfront.

She reports that the boom is doing an excellent job of keeping the seaweed, dead fish and floating debris away from her dock. She says that seaweed is already starting to show up this year but that thanks to Optimax her water is clean and beautiful.

“Seaweed, dead fish, and large debris (logs) is kept out of my area. My water looks beautiful.”
