Correspondingly, how long after adding algaecide can I add clarifier?
If you are referring to foam (not air bubbles), a clarifier can help your filter remove foam, soaps, oils, etc., but you must wait after adding the algaecide per the instructions on the product (usually 12 hours).
Beside above, what does algaecide and clarifier do? Algaecide + Clarifier is a fast-acting algae treatment that kills and prevents common green algae while clarifies water for clear water. Use weekly to prevent green pool algae. This two-in-one formula works great for all pool types, including saltwater pools.
Similarly, you may ask, can I add algaecide and shock at the same time?
Shocking your pool and adding an algaecide to the water are two ways to get rid of the sickly green color caused by algae growth, but you shouldn't do these things at the same time. Chlorine combines with the algaecide ingredients and renders them useless.
Is clarifier the same as algaecide?
Swimming pool clarifiers and algaecides are often grouped together, but exist for two very different reasons. What are algaecides? “Quat” or “polyquat” algaecides are safer to use than copper-based algaecide given that they do not cause staining, but quats can cause foaming if they are not used properly.
