The barnacleRID electrodes must be submerged just under the surface of the water for the protective field to be established. The protective copper ion field extends from the copper electrodes. The protective ions are emitted from the electrodes in all directions, so the volume of the space occupied by the field is sufficient to protect all of your submerged hull.

An Electrode Assembly

barnacleRID does NOT cause electrolysis or galvanic corrosion, independently tested. This report is available on request.

How Many Electrodes Do I Need?

Depending on your hull configuration and size, your boat will only require between 2-4 electrodes in total to provide complete protection from barnacle growth.
Larger marinas or vessels  may need 6, 8 or more electrodes, which are made to order and for requirements.

Common Electrode Configurations - Mobile Systems

2 Electrodes - Under 35ft Monohull - Single Prop
3 Electrodes - Under 35ft Monohull - Twin Prop
4 Electrodes - Under 65ft - Catamaran
4 Electrodes - Between 35ft-65ft - Monohull

Some Electrode Configurations - Fixed Marina Systems

Half Berth - 4 Electrodes Fixed installation, 1 of them on Buoy - Full drive in and out system
Full Berth - 4 Electrodes Fixed installation - Full drive in and out system
Half Berth - 3 Electrodes Fixed installation, 1 is mobile and must be lifted and lowered manually, before departure and upon arrival respectively
European Style Berth - 4 Electrodes Fixed installation, 2 of them on buoys - Full drive in and out system.

The barnacleRID electrodes are manufactured with the highest quality materials right here in Australia. They’re rugged enough to stand up to the harshest conditions.

The electrodes only need to be in the water when your boat is anchored or moored. When you want to travel the electrodes can simply be lifted out of the water and stowed for the journey.

The computer controller recognises when the electrodes are out of the water and automatically reactivate on re submerging. This means that the computer controller does not need to be turned off.

You can also have the electrodes permanently mounted on your Marina powered by your shore mains power.

Large cruisers often use the zig-zag staggered positioning of the electrodes giving in some cases more protection rather than straight up and down the hull Installation,just ask us for our recommendation on your particular boat and location.
