Liquid Pool Cover Overdose? No Problem!

Overdosing liquid pool covers is OK and won
Have you overdosed your swimming pool with a liquid pool cover? Don't worry!

Perhaps it was your first time using Ecosavr and, in your excitement you didn't quite "snip" the right fin, or you snipped too far down and the entire fish poured out into your pool. 

Perhaps your children or grandchildren wanted to help out with the chores and just poured a bunch of Heatsavr into your pool. 

If your pool was given a bit more liquid pool cover than usual, don't worry - it's Ok!

Heatsavr and Ecosavr are both very simple products to use, but sometimes mistakes happen. While consistent liquid pool cover overdosing is not recommended, it will certainly not harm or affect any of your pool equipment or swimmers!
The dosage rate for Heatsavr and Ecosavr has been carefully researched and tested over the past 20+ years, and we know that the recommended amount is what a pool requires to achieve the results we publish.

Ecosavr was developed for residential swimming pools, and doses a tiny amount of product consistently over a 30 day period so that there is always fresh new liquid cover protecting your swimming pool. 

Home pool owners can also choose to manually dose Heatsavr on a weekly basis. The product is biodegradable, but adding more product at the beginning of a week will help the results stay relatively consistent throughout a 7-day period. We don't recommend waiting any longer than that before reapplying though, because the protective layer will have run thin by then, and your pool will start to lose more and more heat.

Large backyard pools or commercial facilities can install an automatic metering system to dose the liquid on a daily basis for the best coverage possible

Each of these options come with recommended application rates that will provide your unique swimming pool with optimum coverage. 

However, if you happen to add a whole Ecosavr fish at once - or even an entire gallon jug of Heatsavr! - the worst that will happen is that the product will still biodegrade within about a weeks time, and you will have to purchase more liquid cover to keep the savings coming. 

It will not have any adverse affects on your pool equipment or filters, and the water will still be safe for all swimmers! 

Bottom line: if you overdosed your swimming pool with Heatsavr or Ecosavr, don't worry! Life happens and your pool will barely notice the difference!

Yes, you certainly can! Many new liquid pool cover users start out using both options, but quickly find out the results are very similar using only our Ecosavr or Heatsavr, with much less effort on their part! If you're going away for a period of time, or just really want to maximize your savings, you can certainly use both throughout the day/night!
