The product you are looking for will not act or dissolve fast enough for the task. Use 12% liquid chlorine ( to 5.0 ppm or higher) and brush the algae frequently. Back washing the filter when needed is a great help. Usually once per month. You may need anywhere from 2 to 6 gal or more of chlorine depending on severity of the algae. Adjust your pH and total alkalinity. Recheck chlor next day and maintain at 5.0 ppm until you are satisfied the alg. is gone. Shocking with liq. chlo. once per week will almost eliminate your alg problems. If you can find in your area the product "No Mor Problems" made by United Chemical of Calif. this will help greatly in your month to month maintenance. Easy to use. And depending upon which geographical location you are from you may not want to use a calcium based product if your make up water has a high calcium content.
