ABC’s for Basic Pool Treatment
Based upon 10,000 gallons of water – adjust numbers for larger pools
Week 1 –
1) Do a phosphate test along with a combined chlorine test
1 quart per 10,000 gallons of each product. Note, SC-1000 will deplete chlorine levels for about three days. Hand-feed chlorine during this time.
3) Brush pool aggressively
Week 2 –
1) Retest phosphates to see if the enzyme exposed any unseen phosphates. The goal is to keep phosphates below 200 parts-per-billion (ppb).
2) Add CV-600 at the rate of 5 oz./10,000 gallons (residential pool), or 10 oz./10,000 gallons (commercial pool).
3) Add PR-10,000 using the dosing chart on the back of the bottle. Do not exceed 8 oz./10,000 gallons. Clean filter as needed (watch pressure), and vacuum the following day.
4) Pay attention to your chlorine readings and adjust how much liquid or tabs you are using. As you treat with Orenda over the next 3 weeks you will start to see your chlorine consumption start to drop.
Week 3 & 4 –
1) Retest phosphates and re-add no more than 8 ounces of PR 10000, and continue this process in week 4, until the phosphates are 200ppb or below. Clean filter as needed (watch pressure)
2) Add 4-5 ounces of CV 700/CV 600, adjust for organic loading.
Month 2 –
1) Retest combined chlorine.
2) CV 700/CV 600 can be adjusted down to 3 – 4 ounces per week, again depending on organic waste in pool. If your chlorine demand starts to go up, this is your signal that there is not enough CV 700/CV 600 (Enzymes) being added to pool to keep up with the organic waste in the pool.
3) To help you maintain the 200ppb phosphates in the pool do the following –
- Test your source water for phosphates, if it is under 500ppb add 1 ounces of PR 10000, per 10,000 gallons to your pools 1x per month if it is above 500ppb, add 2 ounces per 10,000 to your pools 1x per month.
4) SC 1000 – Maintenance dosing of 6 ounces per 10,000 gallons, 2x monthly should be continued for optimum performance after purge.
