I used 2 of these for an in-ground pool about 18,000 gallons. Followed all the instructions carefully. Pool is emerald green. Had better luck with other products.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TileToolJim Bye Bye Algae Stain
I had stubborn yellow/green algae. Used Algicide and Chlorine to kill. Brushed and vacuumed repeatedly, but couldn't get the yellow/green stain completely gone. A friend told me to try this product. I followed the instructions EXACTLY. And the next morning, there was no more yellow/green stain at all. The pool chemistry remained in excellent condition as well. This product really works and will be what I use for now on.

14 bucks seemed a little steep.
But I've tried a variety of remedies with no success whatsoever.
Followed directions to a T.
Within a day a "noticeable difference"....and I had a TON of mustard algae
that seemed permanently embedded in my pool.
Within a week.....all gone.
Two weeks later STILL gone.
1 month.....the same.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mdc Worked Great!
Had a problem with a green / brown 'dust' covering the walls and floor of the pool. It would sweep right off, but what was not filtered out through the main drain would settle back down on the Pebble Tec and then get progressively worse as time went on. Shock treatment had no effect. Applied Yellow Gone according to directions, and within 2 days the water was back to being crystal clear with no sign of the dust coating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bj This stuff actually works
I was struggling with yellow algae in my pool for months. Scrubbing just about daily and could never fully get the yellowish orangish staining off the sides and bottom of the pool. I was thinking it was there for good and I would have to repaint or plaster my pool if I wanted to get rid of the stains. Luckily I gave yellow gone a try. UNBELEVIABLE results! After about 24 hours the pool is bright blue again for the first time since I moved in the house. Even rust stains were removed. I have never written a review for home depot but I had to for this one. I couldn't have imagined it would've worked so well so fast.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Len did not get good results
I followed the directions exactly, I even use more than the recommended amount because the pool is very green. The product did not work.
Not at all happy with the results.

After strugle for over a month with green algae using several diferent product from wallmart and lowes and super chlorinate my pool several times, I give a try and it work beutifully...
just make sure to bring your PH to 7.8 and proper chlorine leval and it will clean your pool!
I use over night and in the morning was clean.... cloudy from the dead algae but after use water clarifier was ready to jump in.
