  • Test and adjust water pH level to 7.4
  • Add Ultra Clarifier as needed
  • Add Metal and Calcium Eliminator, and then a small amount of chlorine to water; check to see if color is developing in water
  • If color develops, add more Metal and Calcium Eliminator and recheck; repeat as needed until you can add a small amount of chlorine to water without any color developing
