Q:Will this vacuum up algae with a robotic pool vacuum? That is another way of bypassing the pool filter.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Dds2, We are the manufacturer of Pool Time products. We do not recommend using a robotic pool vacuum to vacuum up the debris settled by our Sink to Clear Flocculant. Typically the amount of debris that settles is more than the robotic vacuums can manage on their own and the robotic vacuum or its collection system may become overly clogged by this process. If you have any other questions, please give our Technical Solutions Team a call at 1-800-252-POOL (7665). Thank you.

    Answer This Question

    A:  Hi Candypz21, We are the manufacturer of Pool Time products. Vacuuming through the filter after the use of Sink to Clear Flocculant will most likely clog your filter media, resulting in a need to backwash or change your DE Media. For that reason, we recommend vacuuming to waste afterwards. If you would like to discuss further, please give our Technical Solutions Team a call at 1-800-252-POOL (7665). Thank you.

      A:  If you are not vacuuming to waste, it will got to the filter.  You do not state whether you have a backwash tank.  If you do not you will need to disassemble the filter to clean it.  The flocculant is intended to precipitate suspended solids to make them easier to vacuum.  It should not affect vacuuming.

                Answer This Question

                A:  Hi Computin, We are the manufacturer of Pool Time products. Flocculents drop debris to the bottom of the pool, so that it can then be vacuumed to waste. This product should only be used in systems with the ability to vacuum to waste. For details with respect to its use with your specific filter type, we recommend that you check your filter manufacturer or installation and operation manual. If you have any other questions or concerns, please give us a call at 1-800-252-7665.

                  Q:What is the difference between the flocculant and the water clarifier

                  Answer This Question

                  A:  Based on my online research, flocculant is not as mild as clarifier. If your pool is really cloudy, consider flocculant (one treatment) vs several clarifier treatments. Also, flocculant is faster acting 24 hours vs. several days.

                  A:  Hi, We are the manufacturer of Pool Time products. Floc drops debris to the bottom of the pool, clarifier enhances the filters ability to trap it. If you have any other questions or concerns, please give us a call at 1-800-252-7665.

                    Q:I have dark green water and green algae film on the side and bottom. I bought the flocculent and the Shock Max blue powder, and had some algaecide liquid on hand. Question is, what's the order to use these and when do I brush the walls and bottom? Procedure/timing is not clear on the instructions.

                      by|May 12, 2020

                      A:  Based on my internet research, shock the pool (i.e. kill the algae). It is recommended you shock the pool, sustain that for a few days until the water is no longer green. Then while the chlorine levels are still high (see flocculent directions) flock the pool. I've successfully completed a flocking in the past. Sometimes it take more than the 12 hours, but should see good results within the 24 hours. The amount you add seems a little small, but it is enough.

                      A:  You have to brush the pool down and shock it immediately afterwards. Hit it with a really good amount of shock. Raise the free chlorine levels to around 5-10 ppm and run the filter continuously for at least a day or 2. Brush the pool down at least once a day during this part of the process. Monitor the filter pressure and backwash as needed. Once the algae is dead and the water still doesn't clear up then use the floc. Floc should only be used if cloudiness persist for days with no signs of getting better. Balance water chemistry and then add the algaecide. High chlorine levels will burn up the algaecide.
