Treatment of metals in pool water:
Backwash filter, then allow pump to run continuously. If the total amount of metals present in your swimming pool water exceeds 2ppm, use BioGuard Sparkle Up Filter Aid to help remove metals.

Using a treatment of 1 quart per 10,000 gallons of water, add BioGuard SoftSwim Stain Control directly to the pool in the area of the stain. Brush the stain daily until stain is gone. Repeat for large heavy metal stains. Consult your authorized BioGuard dealer regarding aged stains.
