DOSAGE RATES:

If algae are present, add a treatment of Lo-Chlor® 90-Day Algicide prior to beginning phosphate removal.Clean or backwash filters and ensure pool water is balanced. Test pool water for phosphate levels using a test kit approved for swimming pool use. Using the chart below, measure the required quantity of Lo-Chlor® Lo-Phos® Max for your pool. Slowly add Lo-Phos® Max directly to the pool, distributing over as wide an area as possible.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

  1. Immediately following the addition of Lo-Chlor® Lo-Phos® Max, place one Lo-Chlor® Miraclear® Pool Clarifier Tab in pump basket (follow package directions) OR use 2 oz. of Miraclear® Blue Liquid Clarifier per 4,000 gallons (2 oz. per 15 m3) of pool water. The addition of clarifier will help clear the cloudiness associated with phosphate removal.
  2. Run filtration system continuously for 24 hours. Check filter pressure regularly and backwash, if necessary.
  3. Retest phosphate level of pool water at least 24 hours after treatment. If necessary, repeat dosage of Lo-Chlor® Lo-Phos® Max at weekly intervals until phosphate level is within acceptable range. For faster results, Lo-Phos® Max dosage can be repeated at 24-hour intervals. Refer to above chart for dosage rate.
  4. Test pool regularly for residual phosphate levels.
  5. To maintain phosphate level below 125 ppb (parts per billion), add 2 oz. of Lo-Phos® Max to a 15,000-gallon (1.5 oz per 43 m3) pool weekly.
