    Can I use this product instead of PolyQuat?

    Hi.

    I have a case of Imperial Black Algae Out and its ingredients are:

    Dimethyl Benzyl Ammonium Chloride - 49.8%

    Just wondering if I can add this and use some of my inventory before I buy online.

    Appreciate the feedback.

    PolyQuat is the only recommended algecide.
