I just got pink slim algae (bacteria) in my pool = never had it before.
What do I do??
Hi, Donald. You will have to treat the pool for algae. This product can be used along with chlorine shock.
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. You may view or purchase either Algaecide here >http://www.inyopools.com/chemicals_specialty.aspx > ://www.inyopools.com/chemicals_specialty.aspx

Quat 50 algicide wasn't doing the trick of controlling algae. Hit the pool with the quat60 stuff and problem disappeared and never came back. It even diminished my small dots of black algae I had in spots. I only use the quat60 stuff from now on.

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
Reviewed By: Kenneth E. ()
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
(5 out of 5 stars) Algae Prevent 60 is the BEST
Reviewed By: Gene O. from Cincinnati, OH ()
Pros: Keeps pool algae free for months. No metals to turn blonde hair green.
Cons: There's not one negative thing to say about this product.
I have bought this product from InYoPools for many years now. It keeps my 20,000 gallons algae free the entire year. I put one quart in at opening, one quart in mid-summer, and two quarts in at closing. I have yet to find a better price anywhere on this product. It amazing how much you can enjoy your pool when you don't spend so much time maintaining it!!

Reviewed By: Sharon O. from Mentor, Ohio ()
I am so impressed with this product. If used consistently as a maintanence program prevented algae growth. If algae presented itself the product got rid of it immediately. Very impressed. I have had my inground pool for 20 years and finally found the right product.
(5 out of 5 stars) Really works
Reviewed By: David G. from Houston, TX ()
Pros: Very effective, competitive pricing.
This is a very effective product and will prevent algae formation if used according to the instructions. I've used it for three years now and have not had any mustard algae at all. Inyo's pricing is very competitive as well, though "free shipping" is offset by the "handling" charge.
(5 out of 5 stars) Algaecide Prvent 60 (polyquat) is a top-notch algaecide
Reviewed By: Creekpaddler from Duck River, TN 38454 ()
Pros: Effective for algae control; kind to pool chemistry.
Cons: Only (1) domestic manufacturer; cost; unavailable locally.
I used polyquat for years with great success before it became hard to find at local retail stores. I rediscovered it this year at inyopools.com by reading about pool-water chemistry. Using polyquat makes sense because it kills a wide range of pool algae effectively. And preventive treatments make pool maintenance less of a headache. I've also read that it does not disrupt pool-water chemistry nearly as much as other algaecides can.
(5 out of 5 stars) Works great!

Pros: Works well, no strong odor.
I recently purchase Algae Prevent 60 along with Pool Shock Power Blast and Concentrated Clarifier. After using these 3 products my pool has gone from green to clean! Also, I did not notice any powerfull odors with this algaecide which is sometimes an issue for me.

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.

Pros: very fast acting
very pleased with this product. Put it in my poolwater which was tinted green with algae and by morning all of the dead algae was on the bottom of the pool and was able to vacuum out. Controls against algae very well.

Reviewed By: Vinny from Broken Arrow, OK ()
Pros: Best way to keep your pool alge free over the winter months.
Dont bother with all the other algecides, and winterizing products. This is all you need, and of course a good winter cover. Closed my pool last October, dumped a quart of this in, and uncovered it this weekend and was greeted with the sight of crystal clear sparkling algae-free water. This is the only one you need!

Pros: Very easy to use & maintain
Needed polyquat algaecide to clear 24 hour algae bloom in pool & this product took care of it. Now use it as maintenance & have had no returning algae problems.
(5 out of 5 stars) Clears water fast!
Reviewed By: damon from Stillwater, OK ()
Pros: Concentrated and effective
I use this product to clear a small 6000 gallon pool. Just follow the directions and spread the stuff around the perimeter of the pool, mixing it ahead of time with a little pool water in a bucket. Within a few hours, you'll start to see things clear up. This is not just a preventative product--it will actually eradicate existing algae! My pool went from pea-soup green to so clear that I can easily see a penny at the bottom. Great product, great price!
(5 out of 5 stars) Polyquat 60
Reviewed By: Buddy from Knoxville, TN ()
Pros: Superior Algaecide Prevent
Do your homework and you will find this is the only algaecide recommended on most pool forums (polyquat 60). I have a high stabilizer level and this product is recommended as insurance against an algae bloom. Simple to use with no problems to note when added to water.
