the idea is if you are maintaining the correct chlorine level based on your pool CYA level, you shouldn't need a separate solution to manage algae. if you are managing algae with copper, the water still needs chlorine to be properly sanitize all pathogens, not just algae. bottomline, this is duplicative or unnecessary.

https://www.troublefreepool.com/t...ce.142398/

i have followed troublefreepool forum advice for 6+ years and have spent less time/money each year managing my pool. google BBB, SLAM, Taylor K-2006C test kit, and pool calculator if you interested learning more. the only stuff i add to my pool is salt, chlorine (liquid bleach ideally or calhypo if i need calcium to increase CH), baking soda or muriatic acid (to manage PH). the forum recommends against all other additives including trichlor (traditional pool shock) as it adds things like CYA that makes it harder and more expensive to manage your FC (free chlorine levels).
Add me to the chorus of avoiding this or any other copper based algaecide. Get your pool balanced and add the appropriate amount of chlorine and you don't need this. Chlorine doesn't turn your hair green, copper does, not to mention its affect on your pool.
I second this. This is year 2 of my pool, and it is always clear. I stopped using my poolfrog completely. Which I never bought it.

Only downside to watch on these is the introduction of copper into your pool. Copper does not degrade in water and will corrode metal components as well as discolor your pool liner.

That being said, I had one of these for a couple of years (Costco version) and didn't have an issue with the copper levels but I tend to drain/refill my pool about every two years due to increased CYA levels from pool tabs.

Also, these are not completely maintenance free. You have to pull them out and clean off the copper rod with the metal brush every so often.

Probably a good deal but just paid lots of money for our PebbleTech Pebble Brilliance so no way I'm introducing copper into the pool to stain the finish. Hard pass.

Does this really work? Seems very similar to PoolRx.

I got $99 one from Costco and I have to say so far it seems to work. Did not add any additional algicide after initial opening and don't shock as often and the water seems to stay clear.

TFP is okay. They act like free chlorine, total chlorine and CYA levels and ratios are some big secret. Ive known people who use it and have quit TFP doctrine but with a good rain and dumping out my pool my CYA levels have been fine for a decade. Seems like more trouble than it's worth from the few people that I've know who have tried it. That said. I still don't want added copper in my pool. I'd say this is fantastic for a lined pool though.

Just found this in the Home Depot description:
Ideal for use in variety of swimming pool systems such as shaded pools, screened pools and fish ponds

UPDATE:
If you look in the questions, the mfg responded not to use it in a koi pond because of bleach?

So, there's conflicting information out there.

If you live somewhere like South Florida, have a saltwater chlorine generator, PoolRx or anything like this is a must have (I prefer the PoolRx as I don't want more stuff floating in my pool, but this is more economical at this price).
