BioGuard Banish kills ALL types of swimming pool algae. This fast acting formula will produce results in just 24 hours. This product allows swimmers to return soon after treatment. It is formulated to clear up water while it kills the algae and is approved for use in chlorine and bromine pools. Banish does not affect pH levels, so no readjusting is necessary after application. This product is also approved for use during shock treatments, so there are fewer steps than when using other copper-based algaecides.

Prior to application:
Ensure all equipment is working properly. If necessary, clean the filer system, adjust pH between 7.2-7.6, and establish a minimum level of 30-40 ppm of stabilizer in chlorinated pools. Vacuum leaves and any other foreign debris from pool. If metal testing indicates a need to use a stain and scale inhibitor, apply that product per label directions.
