- Net as much organic matter as possible from the bottom of the pool (even if you can’t see the bottom)
- Brush all walls to break algae lose from the walls.
- Shock pool at a rate of 4# per 10,000 gallons or 4 gallons liquid per 10,000 gallons with the pump running on recirculate.
- Add 1 gallon of muriatic acid per 20,000 gallons of pool water by pouring around the perimeter of the pool.
- After 30 minutes of circulation, turn off pool pump, spray a double dose of Revive!® (2 quart bottles for 24,000 gallons) over the surface of the pool.
- Manipulate timer to not turn the pump on while treating with Revive. If the pump comes on the cleanup will be delayed.
- Return to pool in 24 to 72 hours (depending on temperature of the water, debris drops slower the colder the water temperature, 24-30 hours is normal) and vacuum debris to waste.
- Balance pool ASAP and introduce EZ-POOL per instructions on Pail.
