    No idea on its insecticidal properties but linear quats are the common components in cheap algaecides (also found in non-alcohol based hand sanitizers). They are easily broken down by chlorine into compounds that cause water to foam.

    The side effects will be increased FC demand if you add it to your pool water as well as possible foaming.

    Sounds like a terrible idea in that case then. Unless you like foaming, and increased FC demand.

    I'll pass.
