Product Dosage Chlorine & Bromine Pools: 1.7-2.8 lb per 1,000 gallons of water. SoftSwim & Other Biguanide Pools: 2.8-4.5 lb per 1,000 gallons of water.
Initial Application for Chlorine & Bromine Pools:
Backwash and clean filter. Balance you pool water and adjust pH between 7.2-7.6. Add between 1.7-2.8 lbs. of Optimizer Plus per 1,000 gallons of pool water (this gives a 30-50 ppm residual) by broadcasting the product over the surface of the pool with the pump running. BioGuard recommends for pools that have experienced previous problems or are currently experiencing problems with algae or cloudy water to treat at higher level of 2.8 lbs per 1,000 gallons. This initial treatment should be added in three doses with one third of the required amount being added each application. Brush any undissolved product from the bottom of the pool. The pH of the pool water will rise as normal reaction to the introduction of Optimizer Plus. One hour after each application, adjust the pH to 7.2-7.6 with BioGuard Lo N Slo, according to label directions. Allow at least 8 hours between the applications. Do not add additional product until the pH is between 7.2-4.6 (Note: For every 2 lbs of Optimizer Plus, approximately 1 pound of Lo N Slo will be required for pH adjustment). Within 10 days, take a water sample to your BoGuard dealer to test water balance and to determine if an adequate amount of this product has been added.
