How does this product compare to: Didecyt dimethyl ammonium chloride

A  Answered on 6/14/2019 by InyoPools Product Specialist Aidan F.

Hi Daniel, this produce (Polixetonium Chloride) is going to be very comparable to Didecyldimethylammonium Chloride. The Polixetonium Chloride is slightly more soluble in water and has a slightly more basic pH (6.9-7.3). In terms of toxicity, these will both be effective to eliminate Freshwater Green Algae, with slightly different EC50 water concentrations when it comes down to various species. The Didecyldimethylammonium Chloride will be slightly better for the environment, as it fully degrades in water. In the end, both are readily suitable compounds to eliminate your pool algae blooms.

My pool is equipped with an ionizer system which runs with a weekly shock treatment of 2lbs., no other chlorination. Will this algaecide be effective in this environment through the mid- Atlantic winter?

A  Answered on 9/30/2016 by InyoPools Product Specialist Scott W.

You will want to use some form of chlorine with an algaecide. For most algaecides, chlorine is what helps it works. If you are worried about chlorine being in your water next summer, don't worry, it will be gone by the time you open your pool next summer.

Speeds up the process of clearing up a green pool. A lot stronger than just algeacide.
