Balance: Balanced pool water improves summer comfort and chemical effectiveness. Use Pool Time PH Up, PH Down, Chlorine Stabilizer and Total Alkalinity Increaser to balance.

Sanitize: Routine sanitation helps to kill bacteria and algae in pool water. Use Max Blue 6 in 1 Chlorinating Tablets. 3 tablets per week or as needed.

Shock: Shock regularly to remove contaminants and create crystal clear water. Use Pool Time Max Blue 6 in 1 Shock, 1 bag per week.

Algicide: Using routinely to prevent algae or as a treatment to eliminate current problems. Use Pool Time Algicide Max Blue as needed for black and/or green algae.

Solutions: To correct dull, hazy or cloudy water use Pool Time Super Water Clarifier.
