Skill-it Algaecide is a user-friendly, EPA registered algae remover. It removes strong and persistent algae including most types, colors and forms of algae. It can be applied directly to water for treatment.
Skill-it works best when it is added directly to pool water by itself in the area where the algae is most severe. (turn off water features and keep agitation to a minimum to prevent excessive foam during treatment) The product is compatible with most swimming pool chemicals but should never be mixed directly with chlorine or any other oxidizer. Add 26 ounces of this product to each 50,000 gallons of water (5.2 ounces per 10,000 gallons) or ratio thereof. Vacuum the pool after 24 hours to remove dead algae. If the algae are still visible, repeat the process until the pool is free of algae. For maintenance application, add 1.60 ounces per 12,500 gallons or 6.5 ounces of Skill-it to 50,000 gallons of water every three to five days or as necessary. A booster application may be need is after a heavy rainfall or when many swimmers have been in the pool. Then, add 6.5 ounces of the product to 50,000 gallons of water. If algae growth is noticeable, use the initial application of the product for best results.
After treatment allow the filter to run for at least 6 hours after adding algaecide. During this period, swimmers must not be allowed into the water.
