  • Controls Blue-Green, Black & Mustard Algae in swimming pools
  • 50 g/ltr Copper (Cu) Present as a complex blend of copper salts
  • 150 g/ltr Benzalkonium Chloride

200 ml per 10,000 litres

Benzalkonium based algaecides work by smothering the algae spore or bloom molecule in a detergent based film. This film removes the ability for the algae to absorb oxygen so it can no longer grow and dies off.

Copper Based Algaecides work by slowly poisoning the algae molecule and breaking down the organism. This is a slow working algaecide against black and mustard algae. Copper based algaecides work best in conjunction with pool acid (maintaining a PH level below 7.2) and stabilised granular chlorine (Sodium dichloroisocyanurate). 

Note:- Copper based algaecides which are used with Liquid Chlorine and Granular chlorine (Calcium Hypochlorite) can cause black copper staining to the surface of your pool if used incorrectly depending on the application.
