    Re: Eclipse 3

    Welcome. I wouldn't advise the use of Eclipse 3 - a Copper-based Algaecide. Here at TFP we recommend simple, easy to do techniques and less costly options for pool care. Eclipse is an expensive and unneccessary product that could do more harm than good. You don't want copper in your pool, believe me, you DON'T.

    The ONLY algaecide we recommend is Polyquat 60 and even then, only for specific circumstances, not everday pool care.

    With properly chlorinated balanced pool water, routine algaecide use is not necessary.

    If you are having issues with your pool water, feel free to post a full set of water test results and we can advise you better.

    The use of copper based algaecides can lead to copper stains in the pool (which are oftren almost impossible to remove) and green hair! Green hair is caused by copper, not chlorine, period!
