How to Use Baquacil


Baquacil uses a chlorine-free system to maintain swimming pools. It is not compatible with chlorine, bromine, copper-based chemicals or non-chlorine shock. Before introducing new products, you should check with your Baquacil dealer to determine their compatibility with the Baquacil system. When used properly, Baquacil kills bacteria, clears pool water and prevents algae from forming. Because Baquacil uses a gentle active ingredient, it doesn't irritate the eyes or skin and doesn't damage swimsuits and pool liners.

Things You'll Need

  • Baquacil Metal Control
  • Baquacil Sanitizer and Algistat
  • Baquacil Oxidizer
  • Baquacil CDX
  • Baquacil Test Strip

Start Up

  • Get a water sample from the swimming pool and take it to an authorized Baquacil dealer for testing.

  • Add Baquacil Metal Control if the pool water contains metals. For every 2 ppm of metals in 10,000 gallons of water, add 1 bottle and let the water circulate for 8 to 12 hours.

  • Add Baquacil Sanitizer and Algistat to the pool water to bring the level to 50 ppm.

  • Add 1 gallon of Baquacil Oxidizer for every 10,000 gallons of pool water.

  • Add 2 pints of Baquacil CDX for every 10,000 gallons of pool water.

  • Dip a Baquacil Test Strip in the water for one second, hold the strip up for 15 seconds and check the color against the guide on the Baquacil Test Strip bottle to check if you have the correct levels of products. Add more of the products if necessary.

Routine Care

  • Use the Baquacil Test Strip to check the levels of products in the pool water every week.

  • Add Baquacil Sanitizer and Algistat if the level falls below 40 ppm to get it to reach 50 ppm.

  • Add 1 quart of Baquacil Oxidizer to the pool for every 10,000 gallons of pool water.

  • Add 1 pint of Baquacil CDX to the pool skimmer for every 10,000 gallons of pool water.

Tips & Warnings

  • Take a pool water sample to your authorized Baquacil dealer for a professional analysis every month during the season.
