The addition of shock and algaecide on a regular basis will be more effective at preventing algae growth than treating algae once it is visible in a pool. However, if algae does appear, follow the steps below for treatment:
Step 1. Adjust the pH to 7.2 – 7.4.
Step 2. Brush the pool sides vigorously.
Step 3. Shock the pool with Poolife® TurboShock® shock treatment or Poolife® Rapid Shock® shock treatment.
Step 4. Add Poolife® AlgaeBomb® 30, Poolife® Super AlgaeBomb® 60, or Poolife® Algaecide 90 according to label directions. Your authorized Poolife® dealer can recommend which product is best for your pool.
Step 5. Run the filter 24-48 hours, brushing and vacuuming frequently.
Step 6. If algae remains a problem, contact your authorized Poolife® dealer for further directions.
NOTE: If you continue to experience algae, despite a high chlorine reading, the pool water may contain too much stabilizer (cyanuric acid) which interferes with the efficiency of the chlorine. Ensure you are following responsible pool care by shock-treating with a Poolife® calcium hypochlorite-based shock product and contact your authorized Poolife® dealer for further directions.
