Removes Biguanides

FLIP OUT quickly and easily converts biguanide (Baquacil®, SoftSwim®,and Revacil®) pools back to traditional sanitizers without draining or shutting down the pool. Swimming pool water remains clear and safe to swim during the conversion.

Most biguanide pools can be converted in 5-7 days with FLIP OUT.

Available in a 2 lb. size

After three days clean/backwash filter. You may notice debris floating on the pool surface; this is normal during the conversion. Simply skim them off the surface.

FLIP OUT quickly converts biguanide pool sanitizing systems to E-Z POOL®, chlorine, bromine or salt without draining the pool. The easy-to-use program clarifies the pool water, eliminates downtime, and allows swimming during the conversation process.

For best results, stop adding biguanide to the pool several weeks prior to converting. Allow biguanide levels to drop as low as possible. You may want to run the filter longer and brush/vacuum more frequently.

Note: DO NOT SHOCK THE POOL FOR AT LEAST 2 WEEKS AFTER CONVERSION

Using FLIP OUT for biguanide conversions is easy!

Using FLIP OUT for biguanide conversions is easy!

Step One

Start with a clean filter. Biguanide can clog filters and leave a chemical residue which may react to chlorine.

Step Two

Swimming pool water must be algae-free and pump/filter running continuously throughout the conversion process.

Step Three

Balance water to the following:

Calcium Hardness 350 ppm or higher
pH 7.2 – 7.6
Total Alkalinity 80 – 120 ppm

Step Four

Add FLIP OUT to the water (2 lbs per 10,000 gal) and a 3″ chlorine tablet to each skimmer. Continue to replace dissolving tablets until the conversion is complete.

Step Five

After three days clean/backwash filter. You may notice debris floating on the pool surface; this is normal during the conversion. Simply skim them off the surface.

Step Six

After 7 days, check biguanide level. If it is still present, repeat steps 4 and 5.

Step Seven
Replace filter media (sand, cartridge, D.E.) when biguanide levels reach zero and begin using E-Z POOL® or traditional sanitizer.

What is FLIP OUT?

FLIP OUT is a product that quickly and easily converts biguanide (Baquacil®, SoftSwim®, and Revacil®) pools back to traditional sanitizers without draining or shutting down the pool. Swimming pool water remains clear and safe to swim during the conversion. Most biguanide pools can be converted in 5 to 7 days with FLIP OUT.

How does FLIP OUT work?

FLIP OUT breaks down biguanide sanitizers for capture in the pool filter. The conversion process can usually be completed in 5 to 7 days.

Why is FLIP OUT better than other products?

FLIP OUT works faster and more effectively than other conversion products because it actually breaks down the biguanide sanitizer.

Do I have to change my sand cartridge after I convert?

Yes. Biguanide is polymer based and clogs the filter media such that chemical cleaning alone is not sufficient to completely restore your filter. If it is not replaced, you will eventually develop filtration issues and cloudiness.

Should I shock with chlorine when using FLIP OUT?

No. Shocking with chlorine will not shorten the time for the conversion process and will cause undesired water color and possible staining. Simply maintain a chlorine tablet in the skimmer and circulate continuously during conversion process. Convert immediately to E-Z POOL® or treat with CLOUD OUT!™ for at least two weeks before “shocking” with chlorine.

What if I have pink, white or clear deposits in my pool or plumbing?

Part of the conversion process includes a chlorine tablet in the skimmer. For pools with a history of deposit problems from biguanide, we recommend keeping a tablet in the skimmer(s) continuously for at least two weeks after conversion along with continuous circulation and filtration. Convert immediately to E-Z POOL® or treat with CLOUD OUT™ for at least two weeks before “shocking” with chlorine.

  • “Just wanted to thank you for a great product. After four weeks of trying several different products and also adding way to much chlorine, we can finally see the bottom of our pool. Added REVIVE! at 6PM last night, by the time we went to bed, we could notice a difference and when I got up this morning everything had settled to the bottom. Used the vacuum for about an hour this morning and were swimming this afternoon. Will probably have to vacuum once more, but so glad this product was recommended to us.”

  • “Easy, simple, worry free…these all describe how my pool maintenance has been since I started using EZ POOL! I have a big pool and it is not a big job with E-Z POOL, just once a week. Once the pool is open and clear in the spring, I just have Caryl’s experts test my pool sample once a week to make sure the balancing chemicals and pH are good. Algaecides are not needed. Brush, brush, brush, as Caryl recommends and my pool is beautiful all summer! Also, it is gentle to the skin and does not effect your hair color. I highly recommend E-Z POOL!”

  • “I have used the EZ Spa now for four years. It is the best spa treatment I have ever used. It makes the water feel really soft and refreshing. I use it once a week and forget it. My spa stays crystal clear. I love this stuff. Not to mention when you use EZ Spa you don’t have to buy so many other chemicals. I also noticed that EZ Spa is extremely gentle on the skin. I can’t say enough about how good this stuff is. Try it, you’ll love it!”
