    algaeside needed with BBB

    Hello everyone,
    I have been doing the BBB since June. Things are working out quite well. In fact, I just recently added borates to the pool and really like the sparkling clear water. I have installed a liquidator as well and have been able to keep my FC above 3. Just wondering if I need to add algaeside to the pool or not? Especially now that I have added the borates to the water. Please let me know what you guys do. Thanks DW6

    Not at all.

    But if you need to for a reason such as an extended vacation or to close your pool for the winter, make sure you use a PolyQuat 60% algaecide since PolyQuat doesn't have copper in it.
