GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

·         Dissolve granules in water prior to dosing. DO NOT add water to product – add product to water, or add directly to pool water.

·         The correct level of free chlorine should be maintained for several hours before and during swimming activity.

·         Chlorine levels and pH should be tested daily by use of a reliable test kit using fresh testing reagents.

·         If pH falls below the required level add dry alkali, if it rises above add dry acid or hydrochloric acid.

·         Dose pool in the evening when the pool is not in use. Dosage rates indicated are only a guide. Dose pool and then test to ensure the required free chlorine levels are reached.

·         If stabilisers are present in the pool, stabiliser levels should be tested fortnightly by use of a reliable test kit. If 100 mg/L of stabiliser is exceeded the ability of the chlorine to control algae, bacteria, viruses and protozoa is reduced.

SUPER CHLORINATION

During the swimming season super‑chlorinate once per week. After Super‑Chlorination the pH balance of your pool should be checked.

WINTER MAINTENANCE

A Super‑Chlorination dose once a month is necessary to maintain your pool in good condition during winter.

CAUTION

Not to be used as a food container.

CONTAINER DISPOSAL

Rinse empty container in the pool water before disposal. Dispose of empty container with household waste.

SAFETY DIRECTIONS

Highly reactive oxidising chlorine compound. May cause fire and explosion or produce severe burns. Harmful if swallowed. Will damage the eyes. Product will irritate the eyes, nose, throat and skin. Avoid contact with the eyes, skin and clothing. DO NOT inhale dust. When opening the container and using the product, wear rubber gloves. If product on skin, immediately wash area with soap and water. If product in eyes, immediately wash it out with water. Wash hands after use.

DO NOT allow the product to come into contact with other chemicals, especially acids, or with combustible material such as paper, fabric, sawdust or kerosene. DO NOT allow to get damp. Use clean containers for dispensing. DO NOT mix with other chemicals. DO NOT mix with different types of chlorinating chemicals. Mix with water only.

DO NOT add water to the product ‑ add the product to water, but in case of fire, drench with water.

Store undercover in a dry, clean, cool, well‑ventilated place away from sunlight. Store and transport in an upright container. In case of spillage, flush with large quantities of water.

FIRST AID

If poisoning occurs contact a doctor or Poisons Information Centre (phone Australia 13 11 26). If swallowed, DO NOT induce vomiting. Give a glass of water. If skin contact occurs, remove contaminated clothing and wash skin thoroughly. If in eyes, hold eyes open, flood with water for at least 15 minutes and see a doctor.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

·         The tablets must be used in a floating dispenser. The dispenser MUST NOT be handled by bathers.

·         The correct level of free chlorine should be maintained for several hours before and during swimming activity.

·         Chlorine levels and pH should be tested daily by use of a reliable test kit using fresh testing reagents.

·         If pH falls below the required level add dry alkali, if it rises above add dry acid or hydrochloric acid.

·         Dosage rates indicated are only a guide as the rate at which the product dissolves is affected by water temperature, flow rate, bather load and other environmental conditions. Dose pool and then test to ensure the required free chlorine levels are reached.

·         If stabilisers are present in the pool, stabiliser levels should be tested fortnightly by use of a reliable test kit. If 100 mg/L of stabiliser is exceeded the ability of the chlorine to control algae, bacteria, viruses and protozoa is reduced.

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

·         The correct level of free chlorine should be maintained for several hours before and during swimming activity.

·         Chlorine levels and pH should be tested daily by use of a reliable test kit using fresh testing reagents.

·         If pH falls below the required level add dry alkali, if it rises above add dry acid or hydrochloric acid.

·         Dose pool in the evening when the pool is not in use.

·         Stabiliser levels MUST be tested fortnightly by use of a reliable test kit. Once stabiliser levels reach 100 mg/L DO NOT use this product until stabiliser levels fall below that level. INSTEAD use an unstabilised chlorine product to maintain free chlorine levels. If 100 mg/L of stabiliser is exceeded the ability of the chlorine to control algae, bacteria, viruses and protozoa is reduced.

CAUTION

NOT TO BE USED AS A FOOD CONTAINER.

CONTAINER DISPOSAL

Rinse empty container in the pool water before disposal. Dispose of empty container with household waste.
