    How do I know which algaecide is polyquat

    If I want to use a (as recommended) polyquat algaecide for pool closing, how do I know if the one I may purchase is a "polyquat" type of algaecide? Will it state that on the container?

    And the closing info on this forum says to spread evenly with a leaf skimmer or etc... does this mean such an algaecide is in powder form or is it liquid?

    Thanks

    How do I know which algaecide is polyquat

    Active ingredient -

    Poly{oxyethylene(dimethyliminio)Ethylene (dimethyliminio)ethylene dichloride}

    60% concentrate in water

    If it says -

    alkyldimethylbenzylammonium chloride

    That is a linear quat algaecide and you do not want that.
