Algeacide problem

Just wait it out. You can neutralize chlorine but algeacides are made up of a variety of molecules, so knowing which one your algeacide uses and how to neutralize is extremely complex.

The algeacide will burn itself out in a week or two. You may have some water foaming in the interim. Algeacides are usually not too harmful so you should be okay.

I tried the Pool Wizard last year and I'm sold on it. No algeacides and definitely no algea. I hardly use any chlorine either.
