Foundation Instructions

Foundation works with all pool surfaces and sanitizing systems, including salt water pools.

For New Pools: Follow builder’s instructions for pool start-up.

Plaster Pools: Allow surfaces to cure according to builder instructions before adding product. (National Plaster Council recommends minimum 30 days).

Salt Pools: Follow manufacturer’s guidelines for beginning operation of chlorine generator.

Before adding product: For pool water with high metal content, add one 33.9 oz (1L) bottle of Natural Chemistry's Metalfree (contains no phosphates) before adding Foundation. Always start with a clean pool and active pool filtration.

Directions for use: (Use entire contents upon opening product.)

This product is designed for use in properly balanced pool water.

  1. Adjust water chemistry to dealer recommended levels (alkalinity, pH, calcium hardness).
  2. Add 16.5lbs container per 18,000 gallons - 22,000 gallons of pool water. With circulation pump running, slowly add entire contents of bucket to pool skimmer. If desired, Foundation can be added directly to the pool water (some short term cloudiness may occur).
  3. Brush any residual material until dissolved. Wait 20 minutes after adding product before swimming in pool.
  4. After one week of operation take a pool water sample to dealer for testing.

Note: In some pools, application of Foundation may cause temporary cloudiness.

Important Water Tests: Test pH, chlorine, and phosphate levels weekly and adjust as necessary.
