Foams and water feels slick. Definitely not as advertised on their bottle. I read that experts recommend copper-based algaecides because they truly don't foam. They are more expensive though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TileToolJim Great for Green Algae
This is a great value for fighting green algae. Follow the directions as overdosing is just a waste of money. Use as directed and it is a very good value.
For tougher algae, like black, you may need a stronger product like The Home Depot's Pool Time Algicide Plus to get it under control. I like to switch applications back and forth between the two products each month. Works for me.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rohit Cleared up a green pool
I left my in-ground vinyl pool unattended for couple of weeks and it turned green. I couldn't even see the bottom of the shallow end.
I bought this product just to try it out. I brushed gently the pool followed by adjusting it's Ph to above 7.6 at least. I also removed any metallic ladders or products that could be in the pool.
Added the whole bottle of it around the pool and ran the filter for 24 hours. O Boy! I was pleasantly surprised to see the pool crystal clear. :) I did vaccum the remaining algae which was minimal and totally visible. Follow the instructions before using it. 1) brush the pool 2) Bump up The PH 3) add this around the pool 4) run the filter for 24 hrs

Product is advertised as non-foaming but it is not. My spa looks like a bubble bath one week after application. It did kill my algae, though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Steve wow - this stuff worked great and worked fast !!!
Pool has some smaller areas of algae growing in several different locations. Added the entire quart to my 22000 gal pool and there was remarkable difference after just 5 hours - does stay foamy but not too bad - works great !!!

Application resulted in pool water turning green! Tech rep at Pool Time suggests using 3 quarts of Scale, Metal & Stain control to eliminate copper minerals (at $17.88/gt).
