    banish Substitute?

    Is there a substitute for banish? I had some Mustard alge in my pool and had to buy that to kill it. I was wondering if there might be something else cheaper to use? The main ingredient was Copper.

    Chlorine kills mustard algae. You really don't want to put copper in your pool - you risk staining the pool and it causes green hair.

    nice, I knew I should have asked here first.... But My wife and I sorta freaked out when we seen it, covering the pool floor. I vacumned the floor ejecting the water, and it's back to normal. We'll see if our hair changes!!
