ProTeam Power 73 is a powerful pool shock that helps control odor, bacteria and algae. This shock is compatible with all pool types except biguanide. This shock contains no stabilizer and does not require pre-dissolving.
1 lb per 15,000 gallons of water
Opening Pool/Initial Chlorination:
Begin operation of your recirculation equipment. Balance the water by making certain the pool water parameters for pH,, total alkalinity, and water hardness are in their proper ranges. Follow "Shock Treatment/Superchlorination" application directions to superchlorinate the pool. Allow 30 minutes for the product to disperse, then determine the free chlorine residual using a pool test kit. If no residual is found, superchlorinate again. Repeat treatment, as needed, until the chlorine residual is 1.0 ppm. If a stabilizer is used, check and adjust stabilizer to proper level. Do not enter the water until the free chlorine residual is 4.0 ppm or less. Wait at least 4 hours, preferably overnight; then vacuum the pool bottom. Begin routine chlorination.
Actual dosages of this product required to maintain the desired free chlorine residual will vary with sunlight, water temperatures, bathing load, stabilizer concentration, water balance, and other factors. Use a test kit frequently to determine and maintain the proper free chlorine chlorine residual. Do not enter the pool until the free chlorine residual has dropped to 4.0 ppm or less as measured using your test kit.
Add 3-4 ounces of this product (1 to 2 ounces in stabilized pools) per 5,000 gallons of water daily or as needed to maintain the desired free chlorine residual whether the pool is in use or not. For small changes in free chlorine residual once a free chlorine residual is detected, the addition of 1 ounce of this product to 5,000 gallons of water will raise the free chlorine residual approximately 1.0 ppm.
Shock Treatment / Superchlorination:
Adjust pH between 7.2 and 7.4 prior to shocking or superchlorination. Add this product at night or when the pool is not in use. To prevent pool water problems, shock at least once per week during periods of heavy use or when water temperatures are above 80 degrees and once every two weeks in residential pools receiving normal usage. Maintain operation of the pump and filter. Do not enter the pool until the free chlorine residual has dropped to 4.0 ppm or less as measured using a suitable test kit. Between treatments of this product, continue to maintain the proper water balance and sanitizer level in your pool as recommended on the label of your normal pool sanitizer.
Add 5 ounces of this product to every 5,000 gallons of water to yield 5-10 ppm available chlorine.
