Flocculant | Aluminum Sulphate | 6 Kg Bucket
Coagulating agent for swimming pool sanitization.
Alum, short for Aluminum Sulfate, is a fast-acting flocculant used in extreme water treatment cases (green or cloudy pools). The addition of this chemical causes tiny suspended particles and impurities to attract, collide and trap together, and as a result, form heaver particles that sink to the bottom making it easier to vacuum.
Quite often after using alum most pool owners will find the water to be crystal clear with the exception of a solid layer of the chemical and particles on the very bottom of the pool. The use of alum is slightly labor-intensive, but often gives quick consistent results.
Keep in mind that this is not a ‘pour-in-and-done’ product and will involve vacuuming and re-vacuuming, as the debris that settles to the bottom will likely stir up as you try to remove it.
Cloudy or Slightly Green Water:
Add 200 grams for every 10,000 liters.
For Extremely Green Pools:
Add 500 grams for every 10,000 liters.
For best results, ensure your chlorine level is between the recommended 1.0 and 3.0 ppm. If in doubt, add 100 grams of chlorine granules for every 10,000 liters of water before the addition of this flocculant.
Add to green or cloudy pool, allow water to circulate for 10-15 minutes, then switch off circulation pump – make sure there is absolutely no movement of water whatsoever for the next 24 hours.
At exactly the same time next day, you will notice the debris has settled on the floor. Vacuum the pool with the multiport valve positioned to ‘waste’ (DO NOT PASS DEBRIS THROUGH THE FILTER).
