When you are a pool owner, you don’t have a lot of time to decide what products you should use with your pool, which is not good news since you need to know. It can seem as if there is too much to do and too little time to do it, so we’d like to help a little on that front if we may.
Among the chemicals you will or may periodically need to use, or with which you may need to become familiar, are sanitizers, shocks, pH balancers and buffers, clarifiers and flocculants, and much more. Another of these is algicide, and you may never need to use an algaecide – but when you do, nothing else will cut it.
Enter BioGuard Banish?, which is not the only solution you can find in an algaecide, but is a right good one nonetheless. In this article we’re going to probe the depths of its composition and go over some of the key points of the value it can provide.
Among the most important things to keep in mind with this particular product is that it is a fast acting formula that kills the algae – any type of algae growth – in your pool or hot tub. In fact, it will not only kill all different types of algae, but you can expect to see results in just 24 hours.
BioGuard Banish? is made with copper as the active ingredient in the algaecide. To be precise, it is 3.3% copper and has a relatively low pH, so depending on how you use it you may need to add a buffer or balance your pH levels in order to keep it where it should be. It has the potential to affect pH levels but that is also something you can manage.
Something else to keep in mind with this swimming pool algae killer is that you can use it in all types of swimming pools and on all surfaces. In fact, it is compatible with chlorine and bromine sanitizing systems as well, which means you can use it not only in pools but in hot tubs. Great for both chlorine and bromine pools, this fast acting formula will produce serious results in no time and will not damage your pool surfaces and it should not affect sanitizer levels.
While this particular product is effective at killing all types of algae, even treating resistant and persistent blooms, if you experience a particularly robust bloom, you may need to reapply it and brush your surfaces thoroughly to dislodge and kill any errant algae that the formula otherwise would not reach.
One more thing to note is that you can also use this algaecide as a preventative measure. It kills algae and is approved to prevent them as well. If you want to use it in this fashion, simply apply 1.5 ounces of the formula per 10,000 gallons of water every week, or 3 ounces per 10,000 gallons every other week. EIther method will work, but consult the product specifics for more details on appropriate use and application and intended effects.
