    Chemicals still ok?

    Hello all its that time again in northeast Ohio to close and I'm gathering my supplies needed to close my pool. As I was doing inventory I found my algeacide from last year that I never brought in over the winter. Do you guys think it's still ok to use? It was in a cabinet in my non-heated garage, don't know if it froze or not.
    Thanks in advance

    If the algaecide container was simply exposed to some chilly temperatures while in your garage, I would think it should still be okay. On the other hand, if it received a lot of excess heat in the summer, that may have impacted it some. Depending upon the exact brand of algaecide, their web site may have some shelf/service life info related to temperature storage limits that could help validate.
