Algaecides are the only real solution to controlling and eliminating all types of algae growth in your pool. They are usually divided into two categories: quat/polyquat and metallic-type formulas. They come in either granular or liquid forms for added versatility, and either type is just as effective as the other.
also Algicide – A natural or synthetic chemical designed to kill destroy or control algae.
A strong chemical which kills algae and stops it from growing.
Chemicals that are used to kill or prevent algae growth. The addition of a preventive is usually added weekly.
A term commonly used to refer to a microbicide. Algaecides are used to combat the excessive growth and damage due to algae bacteria or fungi in cooling systems, pools and spas. Alkalinity: The amount of bicarbonates, carbonates, and hydroxides in water, usually expressed as an equivalent concentration of CaCO3.
Algaecides are chemical products designed to kill algae.

a chemical that kills algae. Commonly available in a variety of chemical types: quaternary ammonium compounds, copper, silver or polymer (poly quat). Chlorine and bromine, also, function as algaecides. The different types show varying effectiveness against different strains of algae.
Used to kill algae. Algaecide can cause foam. Alkalinity: How alkaline is measured in hot tub water, i.e. above 7.0 pH (see Total Alkalinity).
Meaning to kill algae. Algaecides perform best as a backup to a routine sanitation program. They also help to kill airborne spores as they blow into the pool. A variety of algae treatment products are available including copper and silver compounds, quat compounds, chlorine enhancers and herbicides. Algaecides are often formulated for a specific type of algae (green algae, mustard algae, black algae) with black algae being the hardest to treat.
A chemical that is capable of killing and controlling algae.
Any pool chemical added with the purpose of eliminating algae growth within the swimmin pool.
