Start-up Magic

POUR & GO! Plaster pool startup protection

Start-Up Magic is a highly concentrated formula designed to protect new pool finishes from the damaging effects of scale buildup and staining caused by excessive calcium, iron, copper and other minerals. This product works to keep scale from forming on pool surfaces, and reduces calcium scale buildup on pool equipment and at the waterline.

  1. Ensure pool water is balanced to recommended parameters. If not within range, adjust as needed: Alkalinity: 80-120 ppm pH: 7.4-7.6 Calcium Hardness: 200-400 ppm

  2. As pool is filling (with water covering the entire surface of the base of the pool), add 64 oz per 20,000 gallons of pool water. Take care not to splash product on pool surfaces that are not yet covered with water.

  3. Continue with new pool start-up recommendations from the manufacturer of your pool finish that include (but are not limited to): brushing pool surface, brushing any plaster dust that may remain, keeping water in balance throughout the start -up process.

Once start-up procedure is complete, proceed with Natural Chemistry's SCALEfree or PRO SERIES® Stain and Scale Control for maintenance protection.
