From the first weeks of use, algarine will stabilize and clarify
your pool water for the rest of the season.
Please refer to the dosage calculator for
the appropriate quantity.
algarine may be used at the start or at any time of the season.
It remains safe even when high concentrations of chlorine or other disinfectants
are in the water. As with any other type of treatment, it is necessary to
maintain proper water balance:
- Total alkalinity (TAC)
- Calcium hardness (TH)
As well a sufficient concentration of disinfectant (chlorine, bromine, etc.)
should be ensured. Monitor these parameters using an appropriate analysis
kit. The temperature and properties of the water may affect these parameters.
algarine is not compatible with PHMB (Biguanide).
At the beginning of the season and depending on the quality
of your pool water, it may be necessary to proceed to a shock treatment. Follow
the instructions provided by the chlorine manufacturer (or of the other disinfectants
used) for amount required. For optimum treatment, adjust pH between 7.0 and
7.4. In this range, water is mild for the skin and optimizes the efficiency
All season long, use algarine once a week. It can
be poured directly into the skimmer. Let the filter run for a few hours to
provide for adequate distribution of the product. For cartridge filters, dilute
the required quantity in warm water (preferably) before pouring it directly
into the pool. Please refer to the chart on the packaging for the amount to
If treatment starts mid-season, dilute a double dose of
algarine (or triple if water temperature exceeds 26°C) in a bucket
of water (preferably warm) and pour it in front of the return fittings or
distribute it around the basin.
algarine may also be used in problem water.
Following the disinfectant shock treatment, dilute a double dose of algarine
(or triple if water temperature exceeds 26°C) in a bucket of water (preferably
warm) and pour it in front of the return fittings or distribute it around
algarine does not replace disinfectants.
It is VERY important to ALWAYS maintain a safe concentration of disinfectants
in your pool water. The number of swimmers and water temperature influence
this concentration. Maintaining an adequate level of disinfectants in the
water provides for maintaining healthy, clear water. After excessive rains,
when the temperature is very hot or after intensive use of the pool, it might
be necessary to add disinfectant to maintain a safe concentration.
