*This decreases the surface tension and helps the water penetrate the cracks and crevices where algae hide, "carrying" the sanitizer with it. Reducing the surface tension also allows debris to sink where it will be picked up by automatic cleaners. A wetting agent makes water feel wetter, making for a more refreshing swim.
