MAINTENANCE ALGAECIDE Continuous Algae Control
Controls Algae and Algae Slime Growth in Pools
Algae, while not harmful to bathers, does not belong in a properly operated swimming pool. If allowed to grow freely, the pool quickly becomes unusable. Algae can make your pool water cloudy, clog filters, create objectionable odors, increase chlorine demand and reduce effectiveness of other pool chemicals. Using a good algaecide as part of regular pool maintenance program is the best way to control these microscopic plants. Maintenance Algaecide is a highly concentrated algaecide consisting of a special blend of quaternary ammonium compounds that effectively control algae and algal slime growth in pools.
- Broad range – Effective on a wide variety of algae and algae slime.
- Non-metallic – Will not stain pool surfaces or discolor swimmers’ hair.
- Efficient – Fast acting surfactant penetrates and kills algae.
- Summer boost – Performance actually increases as water temperature rises in the warmer summer months, when algae is most likely to bloom.
- Complements most sanitizers – Formulated to be compatible with most chemicals commonly used to treat pools.
- Versatile performance – Prevents algae growth and fights existing algae in pools.
