How do I tell when I
have yellow algae?
Yellow algae grows
on the shady side of the pool, in corners, behind ladders and above the
light. It can look like dirt on the side. In a covered pool, it can grow
all over. Most of it will brush off. If none will brush off, look out,
you probably have metal staining. Use United's Pool Stain Treat for

Does Yellow Treat
have copper or other metals in it?
No! It does not
contain any heavy metals which can stain your pool.
Does Yellow Treat
affect my pool's balance?
No! But if you over
chlorinate your pool, you may affect your test kit results by bleaching
and/or causing reactions with the test reagents. Simply add more
chlorine/bromine neutralizer to correct the problem.
Can Yellow Treat
No! But you must be
careful because you use chlorine to activate Yellow Treat and the
chlorine can cause staining. Be sure to pre-dissolve the chlorine and
broadcast the solution on top of the pool, don't pour it down the sides.
Is Yellow Treat ok
for my type pool?
You can use it in
any type pool.
How safe is it for
me, my family and pets?
Yellow Treat is
non-toxic when added to the pool. We treat your pool as though it is
drinking water. We have let algae grow on our test pools and then
treated with Yellow Treat. The president of United and his family swim
in that same test pool. All our chemicals are produced with the idea
that you and your pets could drink the water safely in an emergency.
Is DPD (Pink
Chlorine Test) the best for chlorine?
No! Our extensive
field experience has shown that the OTO (Yellow Test) is a better
choice. Let the test stand for 5 minutes after adding the reagent. Don't
worry about free or combined chlorine. United makes depending on DPD
(Pink test) obsolete. We also found that DPD is less reliable.
Is there anything
different when using Yellow Treat?
Yes! Your pool will
go through a clean-up period that will last from one day to 3-4 weeks.
During that clean-up period you may experience a low or no chlorine
reading. Don't panic! Just chlorinate continuously. Don't shock! A
chlorinator or feeder makes life easy and we recommend them. If you lose
your chlorine residual during heavy rain, bather load, or high
temperature, just increase your feed rate until the residual comes back.
Do I still need
Yes! Yellow Treat is
activated with chlorine. After the initial treatment, chlorinate
continuously which is much better than shocking.
How can my pool look
so good without a chlorine residual?
Just as judging a
person by age as to how he feels is not accurate, testing of pool water
does not always tell you what's happening. Many chemistries in the pool
can affect your test results. As long as you're feeding chlorine and the
pool water looks good, you are reasonably safe.
Is Yellow Treat all
No! As great a
product as Yellow Treat is, we biodegrade. We highly recommend that you
use No Mor Problems® to eliminate all algae in the future. Also, none of
our products need any particular water balance to work, but your pool on
the other hand does. The main reason that you balance a pool is to
control scale, corrosion and staining. United knows that you don't want
to work on your pool, you want to enjoy your pool. Ask your dealer for a
copy of the revolutionary Hamilton index for easy preventative

little No Mor Problems® and you will save time and money on the spring
