Can you use this Aelgicide?

Rather should you. If not, why isn't it safe? It's blue btw. It says to put it into a pool every week. I have a 40 gallon system atm, this bottle is $10 at home depot and can be used on like 10,000 gallon pools+. Will it eat my tubes or anything? I know mayhem has some lovely products, but if this stuff works, hell might as well.

Even if it were safe, you would still need a corrosion inhibitor.

Check the active ingredients and see if they are safe with the materials in your loop.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

i wouldn't use it due to the clarifier. Aren't they typically coagulants that allow the fine particals in the water to stick together, then sink? Home Depot doesn't list ingredients, so no way to know how they're killing algae. One thing to note though. There's a vast range, from glycols, to sulphates (which would technically be fine) but there are also "other" things they use that may cause issues when mixed with your corrosion inhibitor. Who knows, you could create some form of nerve gas. Note, if it doesn't say "chlorine resistant algae" it's just chlorine.

if you do make the poor choice to use generic pool supplies, water it waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa y down.

Spend $40 on Mayhem's Biocide+ and Inhibitor+ droppers.

I hear stock is low though, as he's about to release an all new AIO dropper to replace the above mentioned (and I think is the new base anti for all fluids he'll be dropping going forward)

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.

Yeah all I know is it's blue and does not contain bleach ^^. Finding 40 gallons worth of biocide\anti corrosion is not as fun as it looks ^^
