Because BioGuard Banish kills all types of algae in a quick manner, swimmers can return to the pool soon after treatment. It is formulated to clear up water while it kills the algae. Banish if for chlorine and bromine pools. Banish does not affect pH levels, so no readjusting is necessary after application. You can also use Banish during shock treatments, so there are fewer steps than when using other copper-based algaecides.
- A premium BioGuard formula and highly effective, it kills ALL types of algae
- Fast-acting, non-foaming, producing results in 24 hours
- Use in chlorine or bromine pools with all surfaces or filter types
Prevent algae before it becomes an issue.
The addition of algicide is needed for proper pool maintenance. Sanitizers or shock/oxidizers alone may not keep algae at bay and this step is needed to keep your pool completely clear of any growth. This is the third part of the BioGuard 3-Step Pool Care System.
Do all algicides kill algae?
Not all algicides are alike, only algicides that have been approved by the EPA for killing algae actually perform. All BioGuard products have been thoroughly reviewed and proven effective. Various kinds of algae may require different treatments to ensure they are eliminated.
1.5 oz per 10,000 gallons of water per week, or 3 oz per 10,000 gallons of water every other week.
16 fl oz per 10,000 gallons of water.
Directions Prior to application:
Ensure all equipment is working properly. If necessary, clean the filer system, adjust pH between 7.2-7.6, and establish a minimum level of 30-40 ppm of stabilizer in chlorinated pools. Vacuum leaves and any other foreign debris from pool. If metal testing indicates a need to use a stain and scale inhibitor, apply that product per label directions. Brush visible algae thoroughly from the pools surface with a surface-compatible brush. Establish and maintain proper chlorine or bromine levels.
Directions to Prevent Pool Algae:
- Initially apply 8 oz of this product per 10,000 gallons of pool water with pump and filter operating.
- Thereafter, for weekly application intervals, add 1.5 oz per 10,000 gallons of pool water. For two week application intervals, add 3 fl oz per 10,000 gallons of pool water every other week. Apply more often if pool volume is diluted by heavy rain, frequent backwashing or partial drain/refill.
- Wait at least 15 minutes after application before entering pool.
Directions for Treatment of Visible Algae:
- Add 1 lb of BioGuard Maintain BurnOut 3 per 10,000 gallons of pool water or 1 lb Burnout 35 per 6,000 gallons of pool water or 1 lb BioGuard Smart Shock per 12,000 gallons of pool water. Follow application directions on these products.
- Allow to circulate 1 hour.
- With pump and filter operating, apply 16 oz of this product per 10,000 gallons of pool water directly to the pool water in areas of heaviest algae growth.
- Continuously circulate pool water for 24 hours.
- The next day, thoroughly brush pool surface.
- Pior to re-entry, test chlorine level. Do not enter pool until chlorine level is between 1-4 ppm.
- In cases of persistent algae, repeat brushing and product application after 2-4 days.
- The use of a filter aid will enhance filter efficiency and algae removal
- Chemically cleaning the filter is recommend 3 to 4 days after treatment.
