The Pristine Blue way to effectively treat swimming pools...












 


You know what Pristine Blue is, and you know that it works, but how?

Everybody knows and understands how chlorine and bromine kill bacteria and algae. Biguanide users sort of understand those products, but Pristine Blue is different from both.

Ron uses Pristine Blue in his pool. No more salt, simple, easy pool care for his family and friends.













Let's take a look at how PristineBlue® works to kill bacteria and algae in swimming pools.

Pristine Blue's main active ingredient is copper (actually copper sulfate pentahydrate, 19.8%). We know that copper is a great algaecide. Copper based algaecides have been used for years to effectively treat serious and stubborn algae blooms.

Copper's main problem is that in many cases, continued regular use can lead to staining of pool surfaces and / or colored water. Certain copper algaecides are now "chelated" to help prevent staining, however overuse can still cause these problems. This is where the technology behind Pristine Blue is not only different, but superior. Any products claiming to be the "same as" Pristine Blue are not and they can't prove it.

Pristine Blue® uses a proprietary technology that causes the cupric (copper) ion to have 2 rather than only one (every other copper pool product) positively charge side to it. With one of the positive charges, Pristine Blue® is able to hold on to the ET3000 additive that prevents the copper from coming out of solution and leads to staining. The second positive is the real magic of Pristine Blue®. This second positive charge allows it to be attracted and attached to NEGATIVELY charged particles (algae, bacteria, other organics) in order to kill them. The copper is "ingested" or eaten by the stuff in the pool, is poisoned and dies (compared to chlorine or bromine which "blow up" the bacteria and algae releasing odor causing enzymes and waste into the water - one of the reasons why chlorinated water can smell). Dead bacteria and algae are then filtered out.

Pristine Blue's exclusive, proprietary formula also allows it to "self-disperse" better in the pool water (positive and negative charges pushing back and forth against each other) compared to chlorine and bromine. Even into those "dead spots" where normal circulation may not otherwise distribute a proper amount of sanitizer.

Regular additions of Pristine Clean, plus Pristine Check at the start of the season to take care of calcium scale, replenish the chelant protecting the copper from staining. Pristine Power and Pristine Extra oxidize other pool waste (suntan lotion, body oils, etc). Pristine Clear aids in pulling together fine "dead" particles floating in the pool.

Pristine Blue Start Up


Day ONE
Start with a clean pool.
KNOW THE POOL’S VOLUME.  Almost all “problem” arise from the fact that pool owners don’t know the proper gallonage of their pool.  Click here for our pool dimensions chart.
Make sure the water is in balance.  Water balance in a Pristine Blue® pool is a little different than in most pools.  Maintain these Pristine Blue®water balance levels for the best in product effectiveness and efficiency.  The levels you need to attain are:
- pH - 7.2 to 7.6
- Total Alkalinity – 30 to 90 ppm (this is the most important difference; alkalinity over 100 can lead to clear green water)
- Calcium Hardness – 175 to 275 ppm
BioGuard Water Balancers such as Balance Pak 100, 200 & 300, Lo ‘n Slo, and Optimizer Plus are 100% compatible with Pristine Blue®.
Note: DO NOT CONTINUE UNTIL THE WATER IS BALANCED!
Shock the Pool with Pristine Extra to eliminate bio-waste in the pool water
Add 2 oz. Pristine Check per 1,000 gallons of water and allow to circulate for at least 4 to 6 hours (preferably overnight).
Run the filter continuously.

Day TWO
Backwash filter or clean the cartridge(s).
Add 2 oz. Pristine Blue per 1,000 gallons water.

Important Note:  DO NOT ADD ANY PRISTINE BLUE FOR THE NEXT 2 (TWO) WEEKS.  MAINTAIN pH 7.2 TO 7.6.  After 2 weeks, check Pristine Blue level and top-up as needed.

Start with a clean pool.  Be sure all leaves & winter debris are removed & pool has been vacuumed.

Add 2 oz. Pristine Check per 1,000 gallons of water and allow to circulate for at least 4 to 6 hours (preferably overnight).
Shock the pool daily with a chlorine shock such as Easy Shock & Swim or Burn Out® Extreme until the water is clear & clean.
ONLY PROCEED TO SECOND DAY WHEN THE POOL IS CLEAR & CLEAN.

Day TWO

Backwash filter or clean the cartridge(s).
Top up the Pristine Blue level following the accompanying chart.
Add 2 oz. Pristine Blue per 1,000 gallons water as an initial dosage (prior Pristine Blue usage).

Important Note:  DO NOT ADD ANY PRISTINE BLUE FOR THE NEXT 2 (TWO) WEEKS.  MAINTAIN pH 7.2 TO 7.6.  After 2 weeks, check Pristine Blue level and top-up as needed.


Maintaining Your Pool with Pristine Blue

Every 2 weeks:

Test and adjust pH (7.2 to 7.6), Total Alkalinity (30 to 90 ppm), and Calcium Hardness (175 to 275 ppm) as necessary.
Test Pristine Blue level.  Top as needed according to the chart below.
Shock with 1 (one) pound Pristine Power per 10,000 gallons of pool water to oxidize unfilterable swimmer waste such as suntan lotions, greases & oils. This considers light to moderate bather loads.  Heavy loads or parties should consider shocking weekly.
Add 2 oz. of Pristine Clean per 10,000 gallons of water.
Add 2 oz. of Pristine Clear per 10,000 gallons of water.

PristineBlue® is EPA registered in all 50 states for Pool AND Spa use. Read the labels and you'll see that chlorine, bromine and biguanides have different registrations for their particular use. Doses are vastly different and sometimes, even the product itself is very different.

One of the great things about PristineBlue® is that it's certified for addition to drinking water by NSF International (National Sanitation Foundation certification 60, that's extraordinary for a pool chemical).
