Dilute this product with at least nine parts water before applying. Pour required amount of this product into a plastic watering can and fill with water. Maintaining constant pool circulation, sprinkle solution around the edge of the pool.
Maintenance Dosage (weekly): To maintain pools free of visible algae growth, add 6 ounces per 10,000 gallons of pool water every week after the initial treatment.
To Treat Existing Yellow or Green Algae: For maximum effectiveness, pools with a large amount of algae present must be cleaned prior to using this product. Pools having visible algae growth must be treated with 32 ounces per 10,000 gallons of pool water. After 24 hours, the algae debris must be removed by standard cleaning procedures, including brushing loose algae spots, vacuuming the pool and backwashing the filter.
