    Pool Algaecides

      Winterizing Wonders
      Third year now that I have used the In The Swim winterizing package for my in-ground pool. Works like a charm and saves the cost of hiring someone to do it for me. This spring, the water needed less attention than prior seasons due to addition of floating clorinator included in the package. Thanks for making opening easier but my former pool guy misses the business. Maybe he'll pay you not to sell your products ??

      Finaly something that works
      We (or a friend) brought mustard algae from the lake. I spent hundreds of dollars on other chemicals in the past 3 years to get reed of the algae but it kept coming back a couple times per year, especially when we forgot to run the Polaris for a week. I tried every algaecide I could find in the stores and pool supplies companies. That's when I sent an email to ask what product would work best for my well water, salt system inground vinyl pool. Yellow out is just fantastic, It killed mustard ... read more algae overnight like nothing I tried before, with less than 2 pounds of it! Hopefully it is gone for good! Untill somebody brings some from the lake again. Tip: Make sure you ask anybody ready to swim in your pool if they used their bathing suit in a pond, lake, river, sea etc... and if they washed their suit since. That's how we ended up with mustard algae in the first place. Great product, Thanks.

      Great alge solver
      Tried this product because when I opened the pool was a swamp. I was shocked how fast it worked and it turned my pool from green to gray with in 20 min. Just make sure you have enough shock because you need to shock your pool 3 times. I agree with other people you also need to use a clarifier to clear it up. I will use this product again. I have recommend it to all my friends a family who have a alge problem with their pool.

      Finally!!!
      I used this in combination with the Algaecide 60 plus & had wonderful results! We have been combatting algae all summer & the pool stores were out of solutions! I put this & the Algaecide 60 in and within one day had a beautiful sparkly pool. It did cause a massive need for chlorine all of a sudden. We usually check our combined chlorine levels as well as free chlorine & our tests indicated that we needed chlorine levels of around 50 to burn everything out! After a ton of shock, we finally ... read more started seeing some free chlorine coming back! Also, our ph dropped at some point, so be prepared with some bicarb :-) However, all of our levels are back to normal & our pool is beautiful!

      Finishing touch
      I've been battling the cleanup of algae for a year. Our (fired) pool service did nothing for it except to add more and more liquid chlorine. We've used several products that have been working, but we just couldn't get rid of all of it. We decided to give this product a shot. I put it in last night, then the powder chlorine, 12 hours later, more powder chlorine. Tonight I only had 3 small spots of algae left. I have 1 more time with the powder chlorine and I think we'll have it licked. I wish I'd ... read more started with this product a year ago.

      Best Results Ever
      I would like to say, we thought our Algae would never have been cleaned up with the well water we use for our 30,000 pool during spring opening. But this kit really did the job. I was VERY impressed. Within 1 week, our pool was crystal clear. I would definitely suggest this kit for bad algae problems, it works AWESOME!

      Best Algaecide on the market
      We have used this product for at least 8 years straight now and no other product works as efficiently as this. It is costly but no other products are needed as others that need an additional product to eliminate the foam.

      Algae Clear
      With the ugly weather we had this summer and turning cold overnight my pool was a mess. This product helped turn my pool back to the clear inviting pool it should be. Very effective and worth every penny.

      Eliminated My Yellow Algae
      We have a 15,000 gallon 16 year old concrete pool that needs to be refinished because it has corroded over the years from chemical use which creates the perfect environment for algae growth. We had mustard algea pretty much everywhere with a concentration on the sides and steps. The Super Algeacide and Super Shock totally eliminated it! It took a lot of elbow grease (brushing and vacuuming), but after a couple days and almost the entire bottle of Super Algeacide over the course of thee days, it ... read more is gone and has remained gone! Last summer I spent much more $ at our local pool supply store buying products to eliminate the mustard algea. Great product and great price!

      Algae Problem??? NO PROBLEM!!!
      Been having horrible algae problems for the last two seasons. Tried everything - algaecide, super shock... NOTHING worked. Saw this product, and thought "what the heck...it's worth a shot." OMG ~ so glad I did. Liner is squeaky clean...haven't had that for three seasons! Highly recommend this product. It's been a sanity saver, and we're FINALLY enjoying the pool again.

      Seems to work
      Due to lots of rain and water temperatures around 95, we were getting heavy algae requiring frequent cleaning and diatomaceous filter changes. After through cleaning and shocking I used the recommended amount of algaecide and after 10 days no algae or filter changes. HOWEVER, the water is no longer crystal clear; it has a yellowish tint.

      It Really Works
      I have had a real problem with Green Algae. My pool is exposed to direct sunlight all day. After several treatments of Shock and Algaecide. This product along with periodic shock treatment has kept it under control and looking great. All my pool chemicals and equipment are from In-The-Swim. They have the best prices and you can depend on fast delivery.

      No Mor Money
      The recommended dosage is quite costly to keep up with and will require you to go thru several bottles in a season. It's active ingredient: ~40% sodium bromide...not sure why they can't tell you that in the specs, other than it's not all that special. I ran into problems with this stuff - the bottle doesn't really address if you have algae - I had to resort to a quat to take care of the problem. So, if you have a perfect pool and never get algae, this is for you. But I would highly recommend ... read more using a quat or copper-based algaecide in addition to or instead of this product. This is not the panacea it (and most reviewers) claim it to be!

      8 years of perfect clarity
      I started using No Mor Problems 8 years ago in our 10,000 gallon above-ground pool and it has performed perfectly. I use 2 1/2 ounces once a week and NEVER have algae problems. The only two times I have had an algae bloom was when I skipped the once-weekly application. Each time about a week after the missed dosing, the pool became a murky green, but cleared up in a few days after starting treatment again. If you are consistent, this product is very affordable. Small, regular doses keep algae in ... read more check and the water is really sparkling clear.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Algaecides

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Why Use Pool Algaecides?

    While lack of proper circulation and out-of-balance water chemistry can lead to the growth of algae in pools, even carefully maintained swimming pools can sometimes experience algae growth. It is important to use an effective treatment as soon as an algae bloom appears in your pool and it's also a good idea to take measures to prevent algae from growing in your pool in the first place.


    For killing out of control algae blooms, look to Green to Clean and Yellow Out, natural and non-toxic chlorine enhancers that boost the killing power of chlorine pool shock. Small localized areas of algae can be eradicated with In The Swim Pool Algaecide, Algaecide 50 and Algaecide 60 Plus, and a stiff pool brush. For repeated algae blooms, step up protection with our Super Algaecide, No Mor Problems or Algae Clear for stubborn situations.


    Preventing Pool Algae

    •  1. Well balanced water, with proper pH, Alkalinity, Calcium Hardness and Stabilizer levels.
    •  2. Constant and consistent chlorine level of 1-3 ppm, along with regular superchlorination to 10+ ppm.
    •  3. An effective filter; run the pump each day for 12 hours daily, more or less, depending on effectiveness.
    •  4. A clean pool; brush, skim and vacuum to remove organic debris which contributes to algae problems.
    •  5. Monitor levels of phospates in the pool. Use a phosphate remover when levels exceed 300 ppb.

    If you do all of that, and still have algae - begin an algaecide treatment with weekly doses of our Pool AlgaecideAlgaecide 50 or Algaecide 60 Plus, to assist your chlorine to combat pool algae. Algaecides accomplish this by eroding the outer protective layers of the organism, allowing chlorine to penetrate into the cells.


    Killing Pool Algae

    •  1. Clean pool of debris with skimming, vacuuming and brushing pool.
    •  2. Adjust Alkalinity to 80-120 ppm, Calcium Hardness to 180+ ppm, pH to 7.2-7.3, and stabilizer to 20-50 ppm. 
    •  3. Add Pool Shock per label instructions.
      • - For light green algae with good visibility, add 1-2 lbs of shock per 10,000 gallons.
      • - For medium green pools with visible shallow end floor, add 2-3 lbs shock per 10,000 gallons.
      • - For dark green pools with very poor visibility, use Swamp Treat or Green to Clean with a triple-dose shock.
    •  4. Brush pool and run filter overnight (remove solar blanket covers while chlorine levels are high).
    •  5. In 12 hrs, check pH and chlorine levels. If chlorine has dropped to near zero, repeat treatment.
    •  6. Continue to run filter 24/7, cleaning filter only when filter pressure rises or flow rates decrease.
    •  7. Add a Clarifier after 2-3 days, to assist your filter in removing suspended particles.
    •  8. Add an Algaecide after 4-5 days, adding an initial dosage, followed by regular maintenance doses, per label. 
    •  9. Add a Filter Cleaner after 5-7 days, to remove algae particles trapped inside of sand or cartridge pool filters.

Our powerful pool algaecide will reduce the need for pool shock treatments and are safe for all pool surfaces.
