I always like to go with a more natural approach with problems in my aquarium rather than a chemical one. I have used alum as a plant dip in the past and when it hydrolyzes it forms a weak solution of sulfuric acid. I noticed that the aluminum container that I had the dip in got really shiny where the water line was (the dip was removing the corrosion lol) . Also some of the plants I dipped it in died.
Have you researched clown loaches? They're great at getting rid of snails. Also you could build a snail trap like this person did here:http://www.petfish.net/kb/entry/781/
One more thing that i've heard is that you can put a piece of lettuce in your aquarium at night and in the morning it should be covered with snails and you can just remove them.

I hope this helps
