A few facts from the professionals...

  • Product may smell and foam for a short period.
  • Reduce pH to around 6.8 for best results. At lower pH the waxy coating surrounding algae cells is greatly softened and allows easier penetration by chemicals.
  • Using “equal parts” of l.c.c. pool algaecide and liquid chlorine (i.e. 5 litres of each) can help accelerate the action of  the product.
  • Use in conjunction with starver® for really bad pools.
  • Regular brushing recommended to assist in algae removal.
  • High doses of quat compound may combine with free chlorine resulting in excess levels of combined chlorine and this may last 2 or 3 days. Addition of Aqua Boost is recommended if condition persists.
  • After algae have been removed always follow up with regular dosing of a Lo-Chlor algaecides and starver®  to prevent re-occurrence of algae and assist other chemicals to work more effectively.
