GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Ensure bathing has ceased before applying this product.
  2. Clean pool thoroughly, brush walls and floor with a stiff pool brush and vacuum to waste.
  3. Adjust the pH to between 6.8 – 7.0.
  4. Continue to run the pump and filter as normal.
  5. Shock dose the pool with a suitable chlorine shock and run the pump and filter for 24 hours.
  6. After 24 hours pour the calculated volume of Black Spot Algaecide near the algae (refer to the table provided). DO NOT ADD THE PRODUCT VIA THE POOL SKIMMER! Continue to run the pump and filter during the treatment.
  7. After treatment wait 24 hours, adjust sanitiser levels accordingly and run the pump and filter as normal.

CAUTION: When dosing the product excessive copper concentrations may discolour hair and swimwear as well as pool surfaces.

During the treatment, use of other copper based pool chemical is not recommended. We recommend using Lo-Chlor Starver® or Starver® X after shock dose to assist with the removal of phosphate from your pool water. Doing this prior to adding algaecides improves theire efficiency.

For additional peace of mind we recommend using Lo-Chlor Starver® or Starver ® X after superchlorination to ensure that phosphates have been removed from your pool water. By removing phosphates, prior to adding algaecides, it ensures the product remains effective for longer.
