How to Use Doheny's Algaecide 60


Swimming pool care can be a tricky business, but with the right tools and techniques, you can keep your swimming pool clean and free of unwanted algae growth.

One of the best products on the market for controlling algae is Doheny's Algaecide 60. This powerful algaecide works quickly to kill existing algae and prevent new growth, ensuring your pool stays looking its best.

In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to use Doheny’s Algaecide 60 for swimming pool care.

First, test your pool water to determine the chlorine and pH levels. If either of these levels are not within the proper range, you’ll need to adjust them before adding the algaecide. Once the levels are correct, you’re ready to add Doheny’s Algaecide 60 to your pool.

Start by adding 1 quart of algaecide for every 10,000 gallons of pool water. Pour the algaecide in the deep end of the pool and allow it to circulate with the pool’s filtration system.

Then, brush the sides and bottom of the pool to ensure coverage of the algaecide. After you’ve added the algaecide, let it sit for 24 hours before swimming. During this time, the algaecide will work to kill existing algae and prevent new growth.

After 24 hours, check the chlorine and pH levels again and adjust if necessary. To maintain a healthy pool, you should add Doheny’s Algaecide 60 once a month. With regular use, you can keep your pool clean and clear of algae.

By following these simple steps, you can use Doheny’s Algaecide 60 to keep your swimming pool free of unwanted algae growth. With regular use, you can enjoy your pool all summer long without the hassle of dealing with algae.
