How To Use
  1. Perform a complete water analysis for winterization and balance according to ALEX® recommendations.
  2. Do all housekeeping chores. Brush and vacuum the pool surface. Clean the waterline with Off the Wall®to remove any oily buildup and dirt. Clean out the skimmer baskets and the hair/lint trap. If the system will not be circulated, remove and store them.
  3. Chemically clean the filter using Strip Kwik® and/or Kleen It®. (If you have problems with high calcium hardness and feel there may be scale buildup in the filter, clean with Strip Kwik® first, then use Kleen It® to remove scale deposits.)
  4. With the pump running, add 1 lb. of Arctic Blue® Winter Shock per 6,000 gallons. Brush up any undissolved product. Circulate 2 - 4 hours.
  5. Pour 16 ounces of Arctic Blue® Algae Protector per 12,000 gallons of pool water around the edges with the pool with the circulation system operating.
  6. Allow to circulate 2-4 hours to evenly disperse the products.
  7. Winterize equipment as the type of season demands. (In much colder climates, equipment may be removed and stored until spring. Follow the equipment manufacturer's specific instructions for storing equipment.)
  8. Drain the pool partially if recommended by the builder or your dealer.
  9. Cover the pool.
