Algae is another common issue in pools that aren’t properly maintained. Algae turns the water a yucky color, but it’s also unhealthy for swimming in. BioGuard offers products that not only kill any algae currently trying to grow in your pool, but also inhibits algae from developing in the first place. This is Step 3 in the proven BioGuard process.
For use in both chlorinated and brominated swimming pools, this algae preventative can work within those tiny cracks and crevices, where algae tends to like to start growing. Back Up stands as one of the most popular algae preventatives in the BioGuard lineup of products, featuring a powerful surfactant/wetting agent that becomes even more active as the water temperature rises — a prime time for algae to strike.
As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. When it comes to preventing algae to begin with, nothing beats Smart Algicide. This BioGuard product is a patented formula that doesn’t foam. It stops green, black, and mustard algae from ever getting started. Usable in all types of pools, Smart Algicide contains a patented chelant in order to prevent stains that so often appear when using copper-based algaecides.
Optimizer Plus works in conjunction with your BioGuard Pool Care System to suppress the growth of unsightly and unhealthy algae. Usable in all kinds of pools — chlorinated, brominated, and biguanide — you’ll want to use Optimizer Plus as much for the way it makes your water feel as for how it helps prevent algae. It makes water luxuriously soft and sparkling!
