Silver Preferred Manufacturer
  • Kills and removes all types of green, blue-green algae growths
  • Eradicates yellow algae blooms and black algae-fungi
  • Super-clarifies pool water during cleanup function
  • Prevents algae regrowth due to bio static inhibitors
  • Salt pool friendly
Purchase Options
Algatec provides superior cleanup especially in chlorine and salt pools due to its strong killing action with all types of chlorine products. The product is both an algaecide and algastat (prevents re-growth). Algatec also eradicates Black Algae (fungi) with chlorine in just 7 to 10 days. Unlike phosphate remover products that seek to control algae by phosphate starving, Algatec kills algae and prevents its re-growth. This amazing product makes it easy to control algae blooms and leaves pool water sparkling clear.

How it Works
Algatec's unique cationic polymeric compound function as a broad spectrum, non-oxidizing algaecide-microbicide that kill and control the growth of microorganisms by disturbing their normal metabolic process of the living cell. Algatec has powerful synergy with chlorine sanitizers which further enhances algae kill and removal. The product is metal-free, non-hazardous to handle, will not cause foam, and does not remove chlorine from pool water.

what is the dosage rate for a 10,000 gallon pool?
A shopper on Mar 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Depends on how bad. I would do about 1/2 (32 oz) if you have quite a bit. Run your pool to circulate for at least 4 hours. Wait about a wek and pour in the rest and run it for about 4 hours. You will need to clean your pool filter system especially if you have cartridges. I would clean them right after the first application. Just flush them out and let them dry in the sun.
After adding Algatec, we have a weird substance (kinda of foamy, hard to describe) floating on top of the water and the skimmers are FULL of it!!! Is this normal?!
Jessica H on May 12, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I've used the Algatec however my water has not been extremely green to the point of being foamy. If your pool water was that dark it is normal, manually remove the foam with hand skimmer and keep running it. Add a second portion of Algatec if water not clearing after a day or two. I add one full gallon, my pool is 22,000 gal. Hope that helps.
After I add 1/2 (32oz) jug and run 4 hrs, clean cartridge filter, -25000 gal Marcite pool, do I have to wait the whole 7 days because we're by the Gulf Coast, during frequent rain storms get a lot of spores blow in from South America. Just wondering when I should pour in the other jug?
Jayscorvette on Oct 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used Algatec on a regular basis for a few years. I follow the jug instructions for either initial treatment or maintenance and add additional Algatec using the maintenance schedule or more frequently if Algae is still present. You should not clean the filter unless the pressure gauge on the filter increases more than 10 psi over the "clean filter" reading as Algatec also works by coating the filter to filter more thoroughly and cleaning the filter before it is required will remove the Algatec that you paid to add.
can this treatment ok to use for water fountain and it is not damage a fountain's water pump ??
A shopper on Sep 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A water fountain is just a small swimming pool so it will work fine. Just be sure to use the proper amount of Algatec based on the number of gallons of water that your fountain contains.
Is it safe for dogs?
Jeff Y on Mar 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not have my dog around any pool chemical. You won't want to swim till after you have applied it and then cleaned the filtes. I'd wait till the next day to swim.
Can this be used on vinyl liner as well?
A shopper on Apr 7, 2017
BEST ANSWER: this product works on all types of pool finishes
When is it safe to swim after using it? How long should you wait to swim?

I have a fountain with 1000 gallon reservior. No filter. Not sure which product to purchase. No filter in enclosed system to pull out algae.?
A shopper on Jul 24, 2018
We are dealing with an infestation of boatman water bugs. We have a pebble tech bottom pool. They say they eat Algae and are attracted to dark pools. We have been putting in Algicides (First Choice)) for the last 3 weeks. Has anyone else had this problem and would Algatech help?

Helped a lot!
I haven't kept up with my pool lately because of my busy life. It had gotten green over the last few weeks of summer. Thanks to this algae killer it is gone.

Algae Killer
I was in a never-ending fight with the algae on the pool until i found this product. I tried several before but they never quite did the job, but now i just pour this on my pool and wait until it does its magic... highly recommended.

Algatec Algaecide !
This product works great ! I have a 50 unit apartment complex and since just all seniors live there, the pool gets used about three to for times a week and with the hot sun and high temps this past summer, some algae started to show its self, but we started to use Algatec Algaecide and it worked great !
