It's what I have used to help control algae in my backyard fountain for about 8 years. It works quite well and, used as directed, is harmless to the backyard birds. As far as I understand, it won't harm bees, either -- however it is toxic to fish and other aquatic creatures.

FounTec Algaecide and Clarifier
No more algae
Great algae remover/preventative for my water fountain
- Value for money
- Ease of use
- Time saver
Worked in less than an hour!
So far first application went great!
PROBABLY WORKS WELL IN A POND. I NEED SOMETHING THAT WILL CLEAR ALGAE FROM EXPOSED WHITE PVC WATER LINES IN A GREENHOUSE. IT WILL TAKE A WHILE TO DETERMINE IF IT WORKS FOR MY APPLICATION
Made both of my previously algae laden fountains crystal clear in just one application. Should last the rest of my life as you apply it in drops. If you have an algae problem, this is your answer or at least it was for me.
Best for Fountains
Can't live without this product. Algae is a huge problem without it. So happy to find this product at this size at Sam's. Purchase was easy, shipping was fast.

The Best Algaecide on the Market
I've bought this product before from my local nursery and just loved it. A small bottle of it cost me $10.99, but it lasted a long time. On a whim, I searched the Sam's club website and was surprised that they sold this product. I searched Amazon and Target prior to searching Sam's and I was excited to find it cheaper at Sam's than what Amazon was selling it for. Great work Sam's club! This big bottle should last over a year!
Reasonable Algae solution.
I use double the recommended amount for my six gallon fountain that evaporates water at a gallon per day. But it still becomes cloudy after a couple months. Probably the best solution for algae control in a small to medium size fountain, though.
I purchased this because of the ratings. I have an artificial waterfall holding approx. 30-40 gallons. Upon receiving the product I added it to the waterfall that had a mild amount of algae growth. I followed the directions...no results. I added more... no results. I emptied the waterfall and let it dry several days. I added the product and it seemed to work for about a week at which time I added more as recommended. However, algae started to grow again. I again added more product... no result. I again added more product to to point the water turned blue ( the color of the product) and again no result. At this point I'll be looking for something else. This did not work for me, I can't recommend it.
