FAQ: Can I use Stain Solution #2 with an ionizer or Nature 2 system? Yes you can, though you should call Jack's Magic technical support for assistance. How long will the treatment take? A Stain #2 treatment can take anywhere from 48 hours to several weeks. What happens during the treatment if my dog gets into the pool? When doing a Stain #2 treatment we do not recommend pool use by people or pets due to the pH being below the normal levels. During a Stain #2 treatment the pH is often in the low 6.0 range. By comparison most soft drinks are a pH of 4 to 5. How long should I wait until I can go swimming? You may only resume swimming after the stains have been removed and after your water has been balanced. I did the #2 treatment and now I can't get a Chlorine reading. With a Stain #2 treatment the chemical will cause a combined chlorine reading for as much as 30 days. You should not try to shock out the combined chlorine for two weeks following the treatment. Be sure that you are testing both free and total chlorine to avoid overchlorinating. When doing a #2 treatment, do I still add the acid if my Alkalinity and pH are already low? Yes, we recommend following the instructions in most situations. If you aren't sure you can call 800-348-1656 and speak to one of our technicians. How long should I run my pump after adding Stain Solution #2? Run your pump continuously for the duration of the treatment.
