Treating Pools with Banish to Remove Algae
If your pool is turning green, has algae spots in it or is otherwise discolored, the pool most likely has algae.
One of the best ways to get rid of algae is by using BioGuard® Algae Banish™. Banish is a highly effective, patented, non-staining algaecide that kills all types of algae in swimming pools. It is formulated for use in chlorine or bromine sanitized swimming pools only. Be sure and read the important notes on the bottle before using.
STEP ONE: If your pool is clear or only slightly hazy, proceed to step two. If your pool is so cloudy or the algae is so extensive that you cannot see the bottom in areas of the pool where the water is 3 to 4 feet deep, use PowerFloc. Be sure to follow the label directions on PowerFloc. After completing the final step of the PowerFloc usage – vacuuming to waste – proceed to step two.
STEP TWO: Vacuum away any debris in the pool. Thoroughly brush all pool surfaces with a surface compatible brush.
STEP THREE: With the pump and filter operating, apply one (1) pound of Burn Out Extreme per 7,000 gallons of pool water or one (1) pound of Burn Out 35 per 6,000 gallons of pool water. Be sure to brush any undissolved product off any bleachable surfaces.
STEP FOUR: Continue to operate pump and filter for one hour.
STEP FIVE: With pump and filter operating, apply sixteen (16) ounces of Banish per 10,000 gallons of pool water, pouring the product directly into the pool in the areas of heaviest algae growth.
STEP SIX: Keep the pump and filter operating continuously for the next 24 hours.
STEP SEVEN: After 24 hours, thoroughly brush all pool surfaces.
STEP EIGHT: Continue to operate the pump and filter continuously for the next 24 hours.
