I was just checking on algae control and shock prices in anticipation of slamming the green velvet coating on my pool this spring.
I ran across a product called GreenCleanMax: http://www.newtechbio.com/catalog/in...roducts_id=222
I called the company out of curiosity and spoke with one of the reps. He explained that you add the stuff - and recommended adding more than required to open a pool - since it doesn't upset the chemistry.
Evidently - it foams up, lifting any leftover leaves etc off the pool bottom in the first 15-60 minutes of treatment. You skim until you've gotten rid of most of the stuff, then kick on the filter and resume chlorination after a couple of hours of circulation. The algae is gone within a few days.
For my pool - I estimate about $90.00 with shipping. I suppose I'd still get a couple of cases of shock to complete the job.
Has anyone ever tried this stuff?
