When used correctly, Ahh-Some 3-N-1 Winter Pool Clarifier & Bio-Cleaner will be your pool’s best friend during the winter shutdown. Many pools are shutdown for as much as 8 or 9 months per year. Many people use lots of chlorine to winterize. This harms your liner or pool finish, decreases the pliability of the vinyl and can cause staining of precipitated particulates. Stop bleaching your pool liner or pool finish! We want you to use some chlorine or non-chlorine shock for winterizing, but not large dosages that are expensive and can harm your pool.
Add the Ahh-Some 3-N-1 Winter Pool Clarifier & Bio-Cleaner directly to your pool water or through your skimmer if the filter is still operating. Simply scoop it out with your hand and deposit it in the water. It will dissolve in a matter of minutes. You will see a little bit of foam when it is introduced. This is normal! If your filter is still hooked up, run it for about 6-8 hours. It’s also OK if your filter is already disconnected. Simply mix up the pool water with a vacuum head or other device to assure that Ahh-Some 3-N-1 Winter Pool Clarifier & Bio-Cleaner mixes completely into the pool. Many people mix Ahh-Some 3-N-1 Winter Pool Clarifier & Bio-Cleaner in a large bucket of pool water, stir it up, and pour it into the pool.
Important: You must add chlorine or non-chlorine shock to the pool before or after adding the Ahh-Some 3-N-1 Winter Pool Clarifier & Bio-Cleaner. This will help activate the product. If your pool water has visible algae or other contaminants in it, you should use a little extra chlorine shock at this time. Use whatever chlorine or non-chlorine shock you may have to do this. It doesn’t matter as to the type or brand. Whatever you generally use throughout the season is fine. Add 6 ounces of Ahh-Some 3-N-1 Winter Pool Clarifier & Bio-Cleaner for every 10K-12.5K of water. You can cover your pool after the Ahh-Some 3-N-1 Winter Pool Clarifier & Bio-Cleaner is added to the pool and is thoroughly mixed in. This is all you need for chemicals! There is no need to add additional algaecide, clarifier, or rust & scale inhibitors to the pool.
If you live in an area of the country where your water can heat up under the pool cover, or you use a mesh cover and won’t be opening the pool in early spring, you may wish to add an additional 1/3 dose in the early spring. Peel a portion of the cover back and simply pour the pre-mixed Ahh-Some Gel into the water. This will help maintain water clarity for an extended time. Ahh-Some 3-N-1 Winter Pool Clarifier & Bio-Cleaner is especially useful for pools that are covered with a mesh pool cover. You will still get the sediment, however the water will be clear.
Why have I never heard of Biofilm before?
This is the significant question. The whole idea of contaminants hiding together for sustenance and protection is very new. So new, in fact, there is a race between microbiologists all over the world to find the proper way to address it. They have been able to determine that many traditional methods that work well in managing and controlling planktonic cells that do not work against cells in a biofilm. But, they have not discovered methods that absolutely provide the same type of performance in managing and controlling biofilms.
“…the opportunity to rethink our strategies for dealing with biofilm problems and solutions that in the past were overlooked or not handled correctly, because no one recognized that biofilms were involved…” (Center for Biofilm Engineering)
The only course currently agreed upon is, if possible, removing all buildups, regardless of their makeup, can be effective. After removal, draining is preferred (Ahh-Some treatment step, excluding pools). If draining is not feasible, then the next best solution is removing the buildup while assuring there is sufficient sanitizer available (Ahh-Some treatment step for pools).
Microbiologist Dr. Rita B. Moyes (Texas A&M) tested 43 water samples from whirlpool bathtubs — both private and public ones — and found that all 43 had bacterial growth ranging from mild to red-level dangerous. A whopping 95 percent showed the presence of fecal derived bacteria, while 81 percent had fungi and 34 percent contained staphylococcus, which can cause deadly staph infections. “The main reason is the lining of the pipes. The best way to prevent such bacteria from forming is to clean out the pipes,” she adds. “The pipes in a whirlpool bathtub need to be scraped and cleaned just like you need to brush your teeth with toothpaste.”
In the recreational and hospitality industries there are many very qualified professionals who simply are not aware of these new challenges.
