Look for an inexpensive Polyquat 60. Anybody have any luck with the Pool Solutions P81001DE Algae Prevent 60? Seems to be various prices for the PQ60, just wondering if there is really any difference. Thanks!!

Welcome to the forum. :lol: Not too many of us here on the forum use an algaecide at all (I don't) but some do so I think you will get an answer pretty soon.

thanks for the welcome!

Making the move from Trichlor to BBB. Finishing up mustard algae fight. Was thinking of using PQ60 just as piece of mind,while I continue to work on getting my CYA level down.

From what I can see that looks the be the right stuff. You want Poly[oxyethylene(dimethyliminio)ethylene(dimethyliminio)ethylene dichloride]. I am convinced I can make that out on the label in the photos I've seen, but it gets blurry.

No, everything containing that chemical is made by the same company and then sold to others for distribution. The only difference is that not everyone sells it at 60% strength.
