    Ascorbic Acid Treatment Question

    I want to know if it is OK to add Polyquat60 AFTER I started the ascorbic Acid treatment process? I have a bottle of Poly60, I added 1 lb of AA a few hours ago and 64 oz of sequestrant. All stains are lifted and water is looking blue, slightly hazy. PH is at 7 and chlorine is at 0.

    You can, but it's more effective if you use it before algae has a chance to grow. It should still help if your water is just hazy and may slow down algae that may have already started growing.
