Expensive and worthless
I balanced the water and applied a bottle of this to my pool (26000 gal) and 24 hours later, absolutely nothing. Zip, nada, ziltch, $27 for NO results. I've had a pool for 30 years and I've never seen anything cost more and do less. I can't believe it did nothing, but the algea is still the same. I did everthing according to the instructions.

Bye, Bye Green Algae!

Being a new pool owner, I am still researching products. Having purchased a new pool home in Dec., this was my first summer battle with green algae, and I was working hard to win. I put this product in the pool last night around 8pm and was shocked to find this morning at 7am that the hint of yellow was gone and even the ladder stairs are perfectly white again. I'll be doing further research as to how it affected the black algae in the grout of the tiles along the edges. Only suggestion would be to mark the side of the bottle with oz. measurements.

A Must Have for Every Pool

This stuff does exactly what it says it does. If wake up to find you have an algae bloom in your pool one day use Clorox Pool&Spa Algaecide XtraBlue and it's gone in no time. Make sure you clean/backwash your filter before and after application because the dead algae with clog in up quite quickly. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Good Product

This product works well if you follow the instructions. You have to balance the chemicals in your pool, backwash your filter, and shock the pool before you use this product. Remember, if your alkalinity is not right, none of you other chemicals will be right either; no matter what they are reading. You will see results in 24 hours but your pool will not be completely algae free until about 48 hours. You may have to use a clarifier to get the cloudy, dead algae out completely. It took me about 72 hours to be algae free and cloud free. After the product began to work, during the first 24 hours, I got a green sludge on the surface that was cleaned by my skimmer. I did have to vacuum the the dead algae off of the bottom of the pool after the first 24 hours. Be prepared to backwash your filter several times during this process because the dead algae will clog it up.

Pool still GREEN

I bought the more expensive one thinking that would be better. My pool is still blooming 2 days later, and with all of toxic warnings on the back of this algeacide, I'm scared to pour more in until the 72 recommended hours have past. I was hoping this would do the trick, but honestly, NOTHING has changed with my pool. I upped the PH. I double shocked it. I backwashed and vacuumed. I used clarifyer....I'm not sure what to do next. Can't swim in it, that's for sure. I wish I had tried a different algeacide and not wasted my money on this one.

Expensive waste

I spent almost $30 on this because my local pool store was closed (owners went on vacation) and I wanted to kill the algae in my pool quickly. I added the recommended dosage and nothing.....Added the rest of the entire bottle and still....nothing. I had all of the chemicals in the pool right where they needed to be according to the test strips and still had a gorgeous green pool. I would not recommend wasting your money with this. Bought an algaecide from the pool store after the owners came back for $22 and one dose later, my pool is cloudy and ready for floculant, AND I still have enough left in that bottle for, probably the next couple of years.

Expensive, didn't work

Bought this product even after reading the horrible reviews, thinking maybe it was user error, hoping it would kill/clear the little bit of black algae I had in my pool. NOPE! I balanced my salt pool perfectly, even had it tested to make sure. I did exactly as the directions on the bottle instructed, including heavily brushing with a wire pool brush to break up the protective layer on the surface of the algae. It was like a thick cloud of blue in my pool, you could barely see the bottom of the shallow end & not at all in the deep end. I brushed every day, 2-3 times each day, for a week while keeping everything balanced. It kept my pool that cloudy blue, it started causing a little foam when the water was disturbed after the 3rd day, didn't do anything to the black algae, & only kept scale from forming on the walls. I eventually got all that blue cloud out & chemically cleaned my filter & equipment. A week later the black algae was 100x worse! It originally was only in the shallow end, a few small patches on the one wall that gets the most sunlight & some small spots on the floor near that wall. It turned into the whole pool, even the deep end, all of the walls, steps, benches, floor, & even our dolphin tile on the center bottom. I went & got a different product from my local ACE, & less than 2 hours later it is almost all gone. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS! If I could give less than 1 star, I would.

2. Yes, only a small amount especially for such a small pool. They are better preventatives than this including just adding a bag of shock once a week or after a lot of rain.
