    5-Step Algae Treatment

    1. Brush to loosen the algae and allow the chemicals to penetrate through outer layers. Use a steel bristled brush on plaster pools.
    2. Apply pH Reducer (included) to bring your pool pH level down to 6.8 - 7.0 to increase the pool shock power. Test water to be certain of pH level near 7.0.
    3. Add Pool Shock  by dissolving it into a bucket filled with water. Pour around the inside edge of pool. Brush the pool again to disrupt the algae and distribute the shock.
    4. Add Algae Treatment – a specialized algaecide to target your specific algae type and color.
    5. Add Super Clarifier (1 qt) - to assist filter by collecting dead algae into larger clumps for easy filtering.

    Run the pool filter 24/7 during this time, cleaning it as needed to maintain good flow and pressure. When the "shock dust" settles on the floor after a day or two, brush the pool, or vacuum to waste if possible.

    After you have defeated the algae, clean your pool filter by using a pool filter cleaner chemical. This will dislodge the tiny remains of dead algae that can provide food and nutrients to future generations of algae.

    smiley-algae-greenContinue to operate your pool filter at least 12 hours daily, and keep the pH low and the chlorine high, and you should be able to make it through the pool season, without another Algae Attack!

    If you have questions about your algae battle, do not hesitate to give call the SPP Pool Experts at 1-800-983-POOL, or send an email with some pictures!
