It does not matter if you have an above ground or in ground pool, just take the bottle and go around the pool spilling it in at the side of the pool,make a complete circle around the pool, that would be for maintaining an alage free pool after a rain storm. If your pools green then it is best to add the contents as recommended on the bottle.for the amount of alage control to the amount of gallons that your pool holds, I would add the perscribed amount the same way, just make sure you are running your filter if your water is green.

Hmmm, you did not read the instructions on the algaecide did you ! Call the manufacturer of the product for this info.

You want to have the equipment running while adding any chemicals. You will want to wait about an hour after adding algaecide.

Vaccum the algaecide and its treated remainder to WASTE. Keep testing until it is ok. It should be fine. You may also call the company who makes the algaecide to get their suggestions. When I had a problem with my pool about three weeks ago, the pool company put a LOT of algaecide in the pool and then I vaccumed it to waste. Now I put just the minimum in each week to prevent algae from growing.

First you have to figure the number of gallons in the pool. Go to: www.poolsandspachemicals.co.uk. Fill in your pool information and the site will calculate the number of gallons. Next examine the instructions on your algaecide and it will tell you how many ounces of algaecide to use per 10,000 gallons of water per week.
