      • Sun Sorb absorbs oils and lotions from the pool water.




      Pool Start-Up Kit Instructions

      Step 1. Begin filling the pool. Add both bottles of stain away following the directions for use on back of the bottles. This will help control minerals that are in the fill water, protecting your pool from staining and scale formation.

      Step 2. As the pool is filling, add clarifier following label directions. Add the Sun Sorb into the skimmer to absorb oils for up to 30 days.

      Step 3. Once the pool is full, start the filter and circulate the water, and allow the system to recirculate the water over night. This will allow complete mixing of the clarifier and stain away with the pool water.

      Step 4. Once the pool has recirculated overnight, shock treat the pool by using the pool shock. Shock treatment will help give the "polished" look you will enjoy. Broadcast shock directly into a concrete pool, but dilute shock in a bucket for vinyl pools. Brush any settled particles immediately.

      Step 5. Add algaecide according to label directions for initial treatment.

      • Keep water circulating 24 hours until water is clear.
