Product Description

Keep your swimming pool sparkling clear with Filter Aid. This filter enhancer will significantly increase the effectiveness of All Pool Filters, providing superior results within shorter operating cycles. Filter Aid‘s natural absorbent properties help remove discoloring minerals such as iron and copper, and tanning lotions and oils from the water.

Directions For Use

Cartridge Filters

Clean the cartridge thoroughly, reassemble the filter, turn on the pump, and note the pressure indicated on the pressure gauge built into the filter. Add Filter Aid very slowly into the skimmer at the rate of 1/2 cup per 50-sq. ft. of filter area (typical 24-ft. diameter above ground pool). The pressure gauge should show a pressure increase of 1-2 psi (pounds per square inch) after a few minutes. If the pressure has not yet increased, add doses of 1/4 cup of Filter Aid until the desired result is achieved. Continue to filter until the pressure increases by 5-10 psi or when the flow water into the pool is greatly reduced. This usually occurs after 4-8 hours of filtration or 2-4 hours if the water was extremely cloudy. Shut off the pump, remove the cartridge, clean as needed, and repeat the application of Filter Aid until the water is clear.

Sand Filter

Backwash the filter according to manufacturers directions and be sure the proper amount of filter sand has been added. Reset to the “filter” position, turn on the pump, and note the pressure indicated on the pressure gauge built into the filter. Add Filter Aid very slowly into the skimmer at the rate of 1 (one) cup per square foot of filter area. This is the typical dose for a small size above-ground sand filter. Large above-ground sand filters require 1-1/2 cups of Filter Aid. Medium size in-ground sand filters require 2 cups of Filter Aid and large size in-ground sand filters require 2-1/2 cups of Filter Aid. The gauge should show a pressure increase of 1-2 psi (pounds per square inch) after a few minutes. If the pressure has not yet increased, add doses of 1/4 cup of Filter Aid until the desired result is achieved. Continue to filter until the pressure increases by 5-10 psi or when the flow water into the pool is greatly reduced. This usually occurs after 4-8 hours of filtration or 2-4 hours if the water was extremely cloudy. Shut off the┬ápump, backwash the filter, and repeat the application of Filter Aid until the water is clear.

Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) Filter

Backwash or clean the filter according to manufacturers directions. Turn on the pump and add a mixture of 3 parts of D.E. powder to 1 part of Filter Aid instead of all D.E. powder, slowly into the skimmer until the proper amount of powder has been added for the filter. Check the filter frequently and backwash or clean the filter when the pressure increases by 5-10 psi or when the flow of water into the pool is greatly reduced.
