How does this product compare to: Didecyt dimethyl ammonium chloride
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?
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.
I am looking for a algecide called poly[oxyethlene(dimethyliminio) ethylene-(dimethyliminio) ethylene dichloride] 60%, do you have this specific algecide?
Rwk, This is the product that you're looking for, we just carry a different brand.
What is the difference between Prevent 30 Algaecide and Prevent 60 Algaecide?
>The prevent 60 is 2 x's as concentrated as the prevent 30. The Prevent 30 has an initial starting dose of 24 to 36 ounces per 10,000 gallons and a maintenance dose of 4 to 9 ounces per week, where the Prevent 60 has an initial starting dose of 11 to 17 ounces per 10,000 gallons and a maintenance dose of 2 to 4 ounces per week.

Pros: It works, good price
What more can you say about algaecide. It works. We put this in at the beginning of the season it killed the algae that was there and we have not had any algae since.

Each year at closing and opening, I use an algaecide 60 to minimize/eliminate algae. This is my first time buying this specific algaecide 60. Other users reported success with this product. Pricing was better than pool store.
(4 out of 5 stars) cost effective algea preventative

Pros: cost effective, non metallic
Cons: non so far
I have used this product on a weekly basis for about 3 weeks now. Pool was free of visible algae at the time i started treatment, so i can't comment on how effective it will be as an algae killer, but it seems to do the job as an algae preventative without unduly affecting pool chemistry. Highly concentrated so you use less for each treatment
