               (d)    if the active constituent of the product is sodium hypochlorite and the product is in a liquid form — Schedule 4; or
                (e)    if the active constituent of the product is sodium dichloroisocyanurate and the product is in a granular form that, for each kilogram of the product, contains 500 to 599 grams of available chlorine in the form of sodium dichloroisocyanurate — Schedule 5; or
                (f)    if the active constituent of the product is sodium dichloroisocyanurate and the product is in a granular form that, for each kilogram of the product, contains 600 to 630 grams of available chlorine in the form of sodium dichloroisocyanurate — Schedule 6; or

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
·         Dissolve granules in water prior to dosing. DO NOT add water to product – add product to water, or add directly to pool water.
·         The correct level of free chlorine should be maintained for several hours before and during swimming activity.
·         Chlorine levels and pH should be tested daily by use of a reliable test kit using fresh testing reagents.
·         If pH falls below the required level add dry alkali, if it rises above add dry acid or hydrochloric acid.
·         Dose pool in the evening when the pool is not in use. Dosage rates indicated are only a guide. Dose pool and then test to ensure the required free chlorine levels are reached.
·         If stabilisers are present in the pool, stabiliser levels should be tested fortnightly by use of a reliable test kit. If 100 mg/L of stabiliser is exceeded the ability of the chlorine to control algae, bacteria, viruses and protozoa is reduced.
SUPER CHLORINATION
During the swimming season super‑chlorinate once per week. After Super‑Chlorination the pH balance of your pool should be checked.
WINTER MAINTENANCE
A Super‑Chlorination dose once a month is necessary to maintain your pool in good condition during winter.
CAUTION
Not to be used as a food container.
CONTAINER DISPOSAL
Rinse empty container in the pool water before disposal. Dispose of empty container with household waste.
SAFETY DIRECTIONS
Highly reactive oxidising chlorine compound. May cause fire and explosion or produce severe burns. Harmful if swallowed. Will damage the eyes. Product will irritate the eyes, nose, throat and skin. Avoid contact with the eyes, skin and clothing. DO NOT inhale dust. When opening the container and using the product, wear rubber gloves.

·         If pH falls below the required level add dry alkali, if it rises above add dry acid or hydrochloric acid.
·         Dose pool in the evening when the pool is not in use.
·         Stabiliser levels MUST be tested fortnightly by use of a reliable test kit. Once stabiliser levels reach 100 mg/L DO NOT use this product until stabiliser levels fall below that level. INSTEAD use an unstabilised chlorine product to maintain free chlorine levels. If 100 mg/L of stabiliser is exceeded the ability of the chlorine to control algae, bacteria, viruses and protozoa is reduced.
CAUTION
NOT TO BE USED AS A FOOD CONTAINER.
CONTAINER DISPOSAL
Rinse empty container in the pool water before disposal. Dispose of empty container with household waste.
