Application rate and instructions:
Feeder or Floaters: Add 16 ounces (2 tablets) per 10,000 gallons of pool water to feeder or floater. Adjust the feeder or floater following manufacturer’s instructions to establish a free available chlorine level between 1–4 ppm. Allow water to circulate at least 4 hours and then test for the free available chlorine level.
Plastic Skimmer: Add 16 ounces (2 tablets) per 10,000 gallons of pool water. Place tablets in skimmer basket. Allow water to circulate at least 4 hours before testing. Test for the free available chlorine level adding more tablets as necessary to establish a free available chlorine level of 1–4 ppm.
Add 16 ounces (2 tablets) per 10,000 gallons of pool water per week, or as often as needed, to the floater, feeder or skimmer to maintain a constant free available chlorine level of 1-4 ppm. Sunlight, rainfall, temperature, number of swimmers, and frequency of pool use affect the rate of chlorine residual loss so check the floater or feeder often and refill as needed
