How to Use Baquacil Select Algaecide


If you’re looking for an effective way to keep your pool free of algae, then you should consider using Baquacil Select Algaecide. This algaecide is specifically designed to kill and prevent algae growth in your pool, and it’s easy to use. Here’s how to get the most out of Baquacil Select Algaecide.

1. Test the pool water.

Before you add any algaecide to the pool, make sure to test the water chemistry. Baquacil Select Algaecide works best when the pH is between 7.2 and 7.6, the total alkalinity should be between 80 and 120 ppm, and the calcium hardness should be between 200 and 400 ppm.

2. Add the algaecide.

Once you’ve tested the pool water and adjusted the chemistry if necessary, you can add the Baquacil Select Algaecide. To do so, pour the algaecide directly into the pool water. It’s best to add the algaecide close to the return line, so that it can circulate throughout the pool.

3. Let the algaecide do its job.

After you’ve added the algaecide to the pool, let it sit for 24 hours. During this time, the algaecide will work to kill any algae that may be present in the pool.

4. Clean out the filter.

After 24 hours, it’s time to clean out the filter. This will help to remove any dead algae and other debris that have been filtered out of the pool.

5. Test the pool water.

After the filter has been cleaned, test the pool water again to ensure that the Baquacil Select Algaecide has done its job. If the test results are satisfactory, then you’re all set.


Using Baquacil Select Algaecide is an easy and effective way to keep your pool free of algae. Follow these steps to get the most out of it and keep your pool looking its best.
