We had friends over last night who have owned a pool for about 4 years. He has relied on the pool store in the past. I have recommended this site.
He mentioned that he walked along the perimeter of his pool and dumped algaecide unto the mesh cover (loop-loc or equivalent) yesterday.
He was happy it rained last night because that helps get the algaecide through the mesh cover.
He claimed that this would prevent algae in the pool until he opens it a 5 weeks from now (beginning of May). We live in south-central PA.
I asked, "How do you get it to disperse without filtration?" He replied, "It just mixes somehow."
Will this have any affect on algae growth?
Or did he just get "pool stored"?
Thanks for your help.
