The Prescription for Black Algae
Black Treat has the strength to control Swimming Pool Black Algae
Black Treat is an EPA registered patented Algaecide designed specifically for black swimming pool algae. This powerful formula can deter black algae growth in any type of swimming pool.
A lesser known fact of black algae is that it can never be “cured”; black algae releases spores that can remain dormant on the surface of your pool for years - it can even survive things like acid washing the surface directly. While spores aren’t visible – this means your pool will be susceptible to black algae growth. On top of this, Black Algae growth is difficult to eradicate.
Luckily, Black Treat is specifically formulated to eradicate outbreaks of swimming pool black algae in one easy to administer dose; simply add one bottle per 20,000 gallons and follow the recommendations on the bottle for super chlorination.
And to make sure you never have an outbreak of Black Algae again, we always recommend that you follow up with No Mor Problems® to suppress black algae from coming back and to keep your pool crystal clear all season long.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How does Black Treat® kill black algae?
A: Black Treat®’s patented formula is a powerful algaecide that works in conjunction with super chlorination. Black Treat® accelerates chlorine’s ability to kill algae by turning it into its strongest (oxidizing) state to burn through the algae in one powerful shot.
While this may not eliminate black algae spores, Black Treat® will eradicate all black algae growth. To prevent the growth from returning and to keep Black Algae spores suppressed, use No Mor Problems®.
Q: Does Black Treat® work in any type of pool?
Yes. Black Treat® works universally in pools treated with chlorine and bromine (including salt pools/chlorine generators).
Q: What advantages does Black Treat® offer over other types of algaecides?
A: In a word- results. Black Treat® is trusted by pool professionals because it gets the job done on the first try using less chemical – and does it without creating more problems.
Metal-Based (such as silver) algaecides do work – but create more problems to deal with: metal-based algaecides can cause significant staining.
Black Treat® works better without causing additional issues to deal with. This means less time fighting algae and other problems, while leaving you with more money in your pocket.
Q: Can I use Black Treat® to prevent green algae?
A: Although possible, this is typically not cost effective. We recommend you use No Mor Problems® - since it specifically formulated to prevent algae. No Mor Problems® will suppress black algae growth caused by spores in your pool.
