I have a 10,000-12,000 gallon pool. I noticed a slight algae problem and used an algaecide today. I added 16 oz of AquaChem algaecide approximately one hour ago. The ingredients are as follows:
Ingredients: Allkyl (c-67% C, 25% C, 7% C, 1%).
dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride 50.0%.
Other ingredients 50.0%.
Now I'm wishing I would have just done a superchlorination. But it's too late now. My question is how long will it take that bad smell to go away from the algaecide? Also, prior to the algaecide the water was clear. I would say I had 100% visibility. One hour since algaecide application I have approximately 90% visibility. I'm a little worried after reading an old post about someone commenting that their pool became completely cloudy the next day. Is this something I should worry about?
Any help would be appreciated. I've only been a pool owner for about a year and this is the first time I've ever use an algaecide.
