OPC Green Pool Kit

Has your pool turned green? Are you looking for a simple solution? Then OPC are here to help. With these five fantastic products and six easy to follow steps you can turn your pool from the horrible green to a crystal clear pool.

OPC's Six Easy Steps

  1. Remove debris, brush floor and sides then vacum
  2. Adjust pH to 7.2
  3. Shock dose water with OPC Shock Granules
  4. Add Pool Sparkle
  5. After 24 hours add Klearpool Algaecide
  6. Re-check water balance using Test Strips

OPC Chlorine Shock Granules 5kgs

`A weekly shock dose is essential to ensure clean and healthy pool water`
Ideal for Shock Dosing the swimming pool water on a weekly basis after heavy bathing or as a preventative measure to ensure bacteria and organic contaminants are eliminated.
Rapid Dissolving Unstabilised OPC Chlorine Shock Granules are ideal for raising Free Chlorine readings without having an impact on stabiliser reads (cyanuric acid).

Treatment

  1. Test the water for Free Chlorine using a CHLORINE TEST KIT.
  2. It is recommended swimming pool water is shock dosed after Heavy Bathing and/or during warm weather to ensure water clarity is maintained and sanitiser efficiency.
  3. Ensure bathing has ceased before adding chemicals to the water.
  4. Add OPC Chlorine Shock Granules directly to circulating water with water temperature above 200C (for temperatures below 200C add product to 10 litres of clean water in a clean plastic container and add to directly to the circulating pool water.)
  5. To increase Free Chlorine reading by 1 PPM (parts per million) add 75g per 50 M3 (11,000 gallons) of swimming pool water.
  6. A shock dose of Chlorine Shock should achieve a reading between 5 – 8 PPM
  7. During the shock dose process always ensure water is circulating via the filter and all pool covers are removed.
  8. After 24 hours re-check Free Chlorine Readings and pH levels.
  9. Swimming should not resume until Free Chlorine levels are below 5 PPM (but above 2 PPM) and pH levels are 7.3 – 7.5.

OPC pH Minus 7kg

`The first line of water balance, simple to use, to maintain those sparkling pool conditions` 
OPC pH Minus is the ideal product to lower pH, Alkalinity or Total Alkalinity (TA) levels in your Swimming Pool, Spa or Hot Tub water.
Depending on the method of dosing, pH Minus (Reducer) and Alkalinity Reducer will either lower the pH or Total Alkalinity (TA) of Swimming Pool, Spa and Hot Tub water. High pH can lead to cloudy water, scale formation and poor performance from Sanitisers (Chlorine/Bromine)and high Total Alkalinity (TA) can lead to difficulties lowering the pH.

Treatment

To Reduce the pH 

  1. Test the water with a test kit, if pH is above 7.6 add pH Minus (Reducer) 
  2. The ideal pH range is 7.3 – 7.5 
  3. Ensure bathing has ceased before adding chemicals to the water. 
  4. Add pH Minus (Reducer) directly to circulating water with water temperature above 200C (for temperatures below 200C add product to 10 litres of clean water in a clean plastic container and add to directly to the circulating water.)
  5. Add a maximum dose of 500g pH Minus (Reducer) to 50 M3 (11,000 gallons) to the water at a time. 
  6. After 4 hours re-test the water and if necessary follow points 3 and 4 again to reduce pH further.

To Reduce Total Alkalinity (TA)

  1. Test the water with a test kit, if Total Alkalinity (TA) is above 180 PPM add pH Minus (Reducer) and Alkalinity Reducer.
  2. The ideal pH range is 80 – 180 PPM 
  3. Ensure bathing has ceased before adding chemicals to the water. 
  4. Add pH Minus (Reducer) and Alkalinity Reducer directly to circulating water with water temperature above 200C (for temperatures below 200C add product to 10 litres of clean water in a clean plastic container and add to directly to the circulating water.) 
  5. Add a maximum dose rate of 1kg to 50 M3 (11,000 gallons) to the DEEPEST POINT of the Swimming Pool, Spa or Hot Tub this application should reduce the TA by 10 – 20 PPM per application. 
  6. After 24 hours re-test the water and if required undertake point 5 again to achieve the desired reading. 

Klearpool Long Life Copper Algaecide 1 Litre

Klearpool is used to maintain good water quality in private and public swimming pools by preventing and inhibiting algal growth.

Treatment

  1. Ensure bathing has ceased before applying this product
  2. Adjust pH to 7.2 - 7.6
  3. If algae is present prior to application it is recommended this is cleared before application. To clear algae, shock dose with unstabilised chlorine shock.
  4. Run filtration for 24 hrs.
  5. Add Klearpool Long Life Copper Algaecide directly to circulating water.
  6. Maintain pH reading between 7.2 - 7.6
  7. Bathing can resume after one full turnover of the swimming pool water, typically 4 hours.

Dose at the rate of:

1lt of Klearpool Long Life Algaecide will treat 33,000 lts (7,250 gallons) of pool water to obtain 1mg/l (ppm) of copper. It is recommended to add a "top up" dose of Klearpool Long Life Copper Algaecide around July, check copper levels with a copper test kit and top up with Klearpool Long Life Algaecide at 0.6 lt per 50,000 lts when the reading has reached below 0.4mg/l (ppm).
