Kills water-borne bacteria. Lasts up to 6 weeks Â–ideal for holiday use. Works even when the water is not circulating.
5-Buoy will provide a constant input of 'background' chlorination over a period of several weeks. It acts in the top few centimetres of pool water where pollution is greatest to minimise the risk of bacterial and algal infection.
Ideal for regular use in conjunction with other Fi-Clor chlorine sanitisers or for periods when the pool is not in use (eg when on holiday).
Calculate the volume of water in your pool (if in doubt, consult the Fi-Clor Swimming Pool Handbook).
Adjust pH to 7.2-7.6 with Fi-Clor pH & Alkalinity Reducer or Fi-Clor pH Increaser as appropriate.
For best results, treat pool with Superfast Shock at start of season.
Allow 3-4 hours before bathing for unit to become fully effective in untreated pool.
Remove plastic label (tear along dotted lines) and set 5-Buoy to the correct pool volume as shown.
Rotate the blue cap of the 5-Buoy to select the correct hole size, appropriate to pool volume.
Place the 5-Buoy in the deep end of the pool with narrow end downwards. Hold it partly immersed to exclude air, and ensure there is free water flow through the cartridge. Never submerge the blue buoyancy compartment.
Make sure the 5-Buoy is floating vertically. With liner pools keep away from sides to avoid bleaching.
Maintain free chlorine residual between 2-4 ppm.
When temporarily removing unit (e.g. if children are unsupervised), stand it in a plastic bucket of cold water free from contamination from other chemicals. To resume treatment, replace unit in deep end and empty bucket contents into pool.
Cartridge floats on its side when empty. Replace with another 5-Buoy; THE UNIT IS NOT DESIGNED TO BE REFILLED
