How much algaecide do you put into 24ft round pool?
First you have to figure the number of gallons in the pool. Go to: www.poolsandspachemicals.co.uk. Fill in your pool information and the site will calculate the number of gallons. Next examine the instructions on your algaecide and it will tell you how many ounces of algaecide to use per 10,000 gallons of water per week.
I can calculate how much water it will take to fill the pool but not the cost. The cost has to be determined by how much you pay for water where you live. The volume of the 24ft round pool x 5ft deep pool (assuming the dimensions given are inside dimensions) is 2,261.952 cu ft and will hold 16,921.662 gallons of water.
Assuming that your pool is 24 Round 52" Walls, Roughly 14,435 Gallons. Amount to be used will vary depending on the algaecide used. We normally recommend refering to the label of the algaecide you are using. We use Blue Wave Halt50 Algaecide with our winter closing chemical packages which recommends using 5oz per 10,000 gallons for booster dose.

For a 24ft round overlap pool liner that is not expandable, how deep can I safely dig out the middle Thanks,?
What should you do if you accidentally put two and a half times more algaecide than the recommended dose in your pool and is it too toxic to go in it?
Vaccum the algaecide and its treated remainder to WASTE. Keep testing until it is ok. It should be fine. You may also call the company who makes the algaecide to get their suggestions. When I had a problem with my pool about three weeks ago, the pool company put a LOT of algaecide in the pool and then I vaccumed it to waste. Now I put just the minimum in each week to prevent algae…
How do you close a salt chlorinated pool if before the salt chlorine generator you would shock the pool and add algaecide but you have never had to do this with the salt system?
How long until it is safe to swim in a 20000 gallon pool that has 1 gallon of algaecide in it when it only was to get 12 point 8 oz of it according to the directions?
Do you use algaecide and chlorine to get started on cleaning a really green pool full of dead leaves?
Yes. They have different types of Algaecide, you want to use one that is recommended for pool openings. Add the proper amount of chemicals (most bottles/packages have a chart with how much to add) and brush your pool. Fish out any leaves and when you can start to see the bottom start the vaccum. Any pool chemical website has this information.
Follow the directions on the bottle of algaecide. For algae other than black you can be liberal, but for black algaecide follow the instructions to the letter. Blk algaecides have a tendency to restrict flow in your filter. Lastly, remember you are putting copper in your pool so too much over a long period of time can build up to a stain.
Ah, yuck. Not a good idea. You may also have E.coli, cryptosporidium, giardia and who knows what in the water. I can only imagine what the quality of the water is or what shape the equipment is in. Booo. k I believe that K may have misread the question . There is not too much algae but rather too much algaecide in the pool. I have done some research and found that eye and skin…
Without seeing your water, I am going to guess that the liquid algaecide you are using is a quat (quatenary ammonium). It is an effective algaecide but it can cause the water to get a little "sudsy" or "foamy". You may have had just a bit too much in there. A way the old service company guys would check your algaecide level was to put their hand in the pool and shake it around. If…
