Davies "Algae-Ban" is a highly effective and concentrated algaecide, specifically designed for swim pool treatment. "Algae-Ban" incorporates 'Broad Spectrum Kill', the latest algaecide development, by controlling most types of algae and preventing their immunity to treatment. "Algae-Ban" is ideal for swim pool use, as algae problems are generally eliminated overnight, and it does not cause foam.
Green or brown algae turns the water green and gives a slippery feel to surfaces around the pool. It can also cause the water to become cloudy. Black algae forms patches on pool sides, giving them a spotty look.
For pools with algae growth, add 32-58 fluid ounces (1 - 1 -1/2 quarts "Algae-Ban" per 10,000 gallons of water. Run the filter overnight and the next morning vacuum and remove the dead algae. Some pool owners feel that adding "Algae-Ban" weekly will prevent algae growth. Although the necessity of this practive with proper chlorination is questionable, the proper dosage is 16 fluid ounces (1 - pint) "Algae-Ban" per 10,000 gallons.
