    Winterizing question

    So before TFP, I have always added to my pool water 1 L of ultra 60 by regal and 1 L of 3-Met-0. The algaecide is labeled as Poly ( oxyethylene dimethyliminio ) ethylene-( dimethyliminio ) ethylene dichloride ...60 %. The metal product does not give actual ingredients, just says it eliminates iron,copper and manganese.
    So wondering if algaecide is the same as Polyguat ? And weather I should be adding these 2 products or just wasting money ?

    The algacide you added is Polyquat 60. You're safe there. This is an insurance policy to help you open to a clear pool next year.

    The 3-Met-0 however is hard to find info on. I did find this old post on TFP that discusses this product. Do you have metal problems with your fill water??
