The Once-A-Week 3-Step Program

From start to finish, the Once-A-Week 3-Step program takes just minutes of your time, only once-a-week! That’s minutes, instead of hours, to keep your pool water crystal clear and brilliant.

BioGuard’s Once-A-Week 3-Step Program is ideal for:

  • Above-ground and in-ground pools
  • Pump circulation 10 to 24 hours per day*
  • Proper water flow through skimmers, with adequate skimmer basket area
    Any surface type
  • Pools that use skimmer chlorination

Step 1: Sanitize to clean water

  Keep pool water sanitized with BioGuard® Smart SilkGuard Sticks™ containing
SilkGuard® Technology.

  • Smart SilkGuard Sticks: Long-lasting chlorine sanitizer that dissolves slowly and all but stops dissolving when pump is off
  • Kills and controls algae
  • Easy to apply to skimmer, no special feeder required
  • The special formulation works best with the skimmer chlorination application

*If pump circulation is more than 12 hours per day, Smart SilkGuard Sticks may need to be applied more often than once per week

Step 2: Shock to remove contaminants

Keep pool water clear with BioGuard Smart Shock®

  • Kills bacteria
  • Kills algae; contains blue algae-fighting crystals
  • Clarifies the water using a filter enhancer
  • Buffers pH to provide brilliantly clear water with no cloudy residue and without increasing pH
  • No need to pre-dissolve

Step 3: Algae killing and prevention

Prevent algae before it starts with BioGuard BackUp® 2

  • Highly effective algae preventative
  • Keeps water clear and free of visible algae
  • Activity increases as water temperature rises (and you need protection the most)
  • Will not evaporate
  • No need to pre-dissolve
  • Non-staining
