    Can I put in copper sulfate AND bleach into the pool?

    I put in Copper Sulfate and now I want to put in Clorine. Can I do this at the same time or will this ruin the water?

    Why are you using copper sulfate? If you have a plastered pool, you will damage it

    Welcome to the forum. Any form of copper in any pool is seldom a good idea. Tell us what you are trying to accomplish and I'll bet we can suggest a to do it without copper.

    By maintaining your residual free chlorine level where it belongs, no algaecides are needed. Copper sulfate acts as an algaecide. Chlorine kills algae far more quickly. The copper effectively does nothing except to greatly increase you risk for green stains.

    Unless you have aquatic plants growing from the bottom of your pool, you do not need CuSO4.
