Algae Prevent 60 (PolyQuat)
Pool Solutions Algae Prevent 60 - Effective algae preventative 1 quart
For More Pool Chemicals
I added 1/2 a bottle of the Algaecide Prevent 60 to my pool 4 days ago. Before adding this product I use the wash on my filter to eliminate the algaecide from the bottom of my pool. I let the pump running for 24 hrs. Two days later I still have a good amount of algaecide back at the bottom. Wash and vacuum again. Runs for 24 and I still have algaecide in my pool. What should I do?
Hello Orlando. Add Pool Shock Power Blast at the dosage rate of 3 -1lb bags per 10,000 gallons of pool water. Add 1 - 2lb Yellow Out and the dosage rate of 2 pounds per 15,000 gallons of water. Brush the sides and bottom of the pool after adding the chemistry to remove all the algae from the surface of the pool. After 12 consecutive hours of pump run time add Pool Shock Power Blast at the dosage rate of 3 - 1lb bags per 10,000 gallons of water. Continue to run the pump until the water is clear, cleaning the filter daily. Make certain to maintain chlorine levels in the pool to prevent a further reoccurrence of algae. Pool Shock Power Blast (68% Cal Hypo) 6x1 Lb Bag - R20841-6 Yellow Out for Mustard and Green Pool Algae 4 lb. - A5296
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.
Is this product compatible with Baquacil?
Hi, The Algaecide Prevent 60 Low Foam 1 Qt is not compatible with Baquacil. Baquacil has their own Alaecide that will work with their line of products.
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.
(5 out of 5 stars) It works

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.
