Chlorine Once-A-Week 3-Step System

Let’s face it, you got a pool to use it, not CLEAN it. Nevertheless, you have to clean it sometime. Thanks to our 3-Step Pool Care Program, that’s only once a week. From start to finish the program takes just minutes of your time. That’s minutes instead of hours to keep your pool water crystal clear and brilliant.

It’s as easy as 1-2-3!


STEP 1 Sanitize to kill bacteria
STEP 2 Oxidize and clarify for sparkling clear water
STEP 3 Prevent algae growth


BioGuard's Once-a-Week 3-Step Program is ideal for above-ground and in-ground pools that meet the following qualifiers:

  • Up to 25,000 gallons
  • Pump circulation 10 to 24 hours per day* 
  • Proper water flow through skimmers, with adequate skimmer basket area
  • Any surface type


Here are the Specifics:

  • Kills and prevents bacteria, while maintaining proper chlorine levels
  • Easy to apply to skimmer, no special feeder required.
