1. Test pH Levels and Hardness
Use HTH Multi-Purpose 6-Way Test Strips to test the pH level and total hardness. The ideal pH range is between 7.2 and 7.8.
2. Determine Number of Pods
Use the label instructions on the back of the pack to determine the necessary number of pods depending on pool volume (gallons) and calcium hardness level from step 1.
3. Apply Directly to Water or Skimmer
With the pump running, add pods one at a time to pool skimmer, or directly to pool water by throwing into the deep end of the pool. Use a pool brush to disperse any undissolved chemicals.
