    throw away old Super Blue?

    Have 3 bottles of Super Blue left over from times past. Don't need it. Time to get rid of it.
    Could take to ?garbage ?hazardous waste but
    Is there anything wrong with just using it up?
    Does it do anything bad? Like gum up the glass?

    Sell it to someone who hasn't seen the light yet. They'll think they got a good deal.

    Robarb™ Super Blue is a clarifier so you wouldn't want to use it up. Overdosing can cause cloudy water and gum up the filter. You should not need to use it. It likely is similar to GLB® Clear Blue® made by the same company (Advantis Technologies bought by Laporte Water Technologies bought by Arch Chemical bought by Lonza) which is a product I used once to quickly clear a pool after a phosphate remover experiment clouded the water and my wife would be swimming the next morning so I needed faster-than-usual clearing. So while it probably works in some situations, you'll likely not have any need to use it.

    We can't advise you on proper disposal of any product, but perhaps the mfr can. I would think if it's safe to swim in, it can't be too harmful.
