What do I do if I have overdosed with PristineBlue®?
PristineBlue® overdose can occur when PristineBlue® is applied more than every 2 weeks or when the pool, spa or swim spa volume is miscalculated. The most common signs of an overdose include cloudy or green tinted water, blue color in the filter, or blue staining on the fixtures.
When using the PristineBlue® Mini Test Kit to test your PristineBlue® level, an overdose will appear as a very intense blue. This dark blue indicates that your PristineBlue® level is high. When this occurs, you need to do a "Dilution Test", which is done by mixing equal parts of pool (spa) water and distilled water. Perform your test according to the PristineBlue® Mini Test Kit instructions and then multiply the results by 2. For example, if the diluted water tested out at 0.7, multiply the results by 2, which will tell you that your PristineBlue® level is 1.4.
If the PristineBlue® level is 1.0 or above, it is recommended that PristineBlue® not be added for another 2 weeks. Add 2 ounces of PristineClean® per 10,000 gallons of water, filter 24 hours and backwash. If staining has occurred, refer to the mineral stain removal method section below. Do not add any PristineBlue® until the actual PristineBlue® level has dropped below 0.9 ppm.
To prevent an overdose, do not add PristineBlue® more than every 2 weeks and double check the pool, spa or swim spa volume.
