Ultra Algaecide

AquaPure Ultra Algaecide has become the most effective method for killing and preventing the growth of algae, combing a high strength organo copper complex with benzalkonium chloride. This highly concentrated pool algaecide breaks down the protective membrane of algae to allow the sanitizer to treat any problems.

In pools containing Ionizers or Nature 2, AquaPure Ultra Algaecide SHOULD NOT be used, we recommend the use of AquaPure Metal Free Algaecide.

  • Dual action algaecide

  • Use for the treatment of severe, resistant algae strains

  • Effective over a wide pH range, best results at pH between 7.0 and 7.2

  • At lower pH, the waxy coating surrounding algae cells is greatly softened, allowing easier penetration by the chemical

  • Compatible with all recognised sanitisers and other pool additives


Q: Can I use AquaPure Ultra Algaecide with a salt water chlorinator?

A: Yes, When added to a pool running with a salt chlorinator the Ultra Algaecide sometimes can reacts with the gases produced in the salt chlorinator cell causing fine bubbles to form on the surface of the pool. These bubbles will dissipate as soon as the chlorinator is switched off and usually only last 5-7 days.

Q: If I’m treating a heavy algae outbreak can I super chlorinate my pool after I use Ultra Algaecide?

A: No, Do not Super chlorinate the pool water for 48 hours before or after the addition of Ultra Algaecide.

Q: If I have an Ioniser system on my pool, can I use Ultra Algaecide to treat an algae outbreak?

A: No, Ultra Algaecide Should NOT be used in pools using Ionisers or Natures 2 systems. Copper can build up in the water and cause unsightly stains.
