What is Green Treat?
Green Treat is an E.P.A. registered algicide formulated for the killing and elimination of green algae.
How do I tell when I have green algae?
Green algae grows all over and turns the water into a cloudy, green swamp. When the algae is on the walls, most of it will brush off. If none will brush off, look out, you probably have metal staining. Use Pool Stain Treat for metals. A clear green pool is not green algae. That's a metal problem and you should use United's Pool Stain Treat.
What benefits can I expect from using it?
Your green algae will be immediately arrested and after you brush off any residue, your pool will have superior clarity. Run your filter to clear it up.
Is it expensive to use?
No! A 2 lb. bottle will treat 20,000 gallons, 2 times what most of the competitors can handle, and we do it better!
How effective is Green Treat?
It is so effective that many pool professionals use it in Southern California and Florida. We guarantee it! Always check your filter with Filter Aid first so you don't waste money.
What does Green Treat do?
It effectively kills green algae and starts to clean up the water of other invisible life forms.
Does Green Treat have copper or other metals in it?
No! It does not contain any heavy metals which can stain your pool.
Does Green Treat affect my pool's balance?
No! But if you over chlorinate your pool, you may affect your test kit results by bleaching and/or causing reactions with the test reagents. Simply add more chlorine/bromine neutralizer to correct the problem.
Can Green Treat Stain?
No! But you must be careful because you use chlorine to activate Green Treat and the chlorine can cause staining. Be sure to pre-dissolve the chlorine and broadcast the solution on top of the pool, don't pour it down the sides.
Is Green Treat ok for my type pool?
You can use it in any type pool.
How safe is it for me, my family and pets?
Green Treat is non-toxic when added to the pool. We treat your pool as though it is drinking water. We have let algae grow on our test pools and then treated with Green Treat. The president of United and his family swim in that same test pool. All our chemicals are produced with the idea that you and your pets could drink the water safely in an emergency.
Is DPD (Pink Chlorine Test) the best for chlorine?
No! Our extensive field experience has shown that the OTO (Yellow Test) is a better choice. Let the test stand for 5 minutes after adding the reagent. Don't worry about free or combined chlorine. United makes depending on DPD (Pink test) obsolete. We also found that DPD is less reliable.
Is there anything different when using Green Treat?
Yes! Your pool will go through a clean-up period that will last from one day to 3-4 weeks. During that clean-up period you may experience a low or no chlorine reading. Don't panic! Just chlorinate continuously. Don't shock! A chlorinator or feeder makes life easy and we recommend them. If you lose your chlorine residual during heavy rain, bather load, or high temperature, just increase your feed rate until the residual comes back.
Do I still need chlorine?
Yes! Green Treat is activated with chlorine. After the initial treatment, chlorinate continuously which is much better than shocking.
How can my pool look so good without a chlorine residual?
Just as judging a person by age as to how he feels is not accurate, testing of pool water does not always tell you what's happening. Many chemistries in the pool can affect your test results. As long as you're feeding chlorine and the pool water looks good, you are reasonably safe.
Is Green Treat all I need?
No! As great a product as Green Treat is, we biodegrade. We highly recommend that you use No Mor Problems® to eliminate all algae in the future. Also, none of our products need any particular water balance to work, but your pool on the other hand does. The main reason that you balance a pool is to control scale, corrosion and staining. United knows that you don't want to work on your pool, you want to enjoy your pool. Ask your dealer for a copy of the revolutionary Hamilton index for easy preventative maintenance.
