    Pool Clarifiers

    1. 6 years ago
      Better Than Most Clarifiers
      Tried this at opening last year since other liquid clarifiers didn't seem to work too well. Dropped one in pump basket overnight and by the morning there was a noticeable improvement. It didn't clear up the water like magic but the water definitely looked better than when I used other products. The only drawback to this is it is a gel and was stuck to the pump basket where the water was flowing into the pump and until it disintegrated to a small size there was a drop in pressure.

      Excellent Product
      I fill our pool with well water and usually by the next day the pool looks green as if it has algae in it but I know it is the metals in the water. I put this product in the filter chamber and the pool cleared up in about 24 hours. I will use this product as long as I use well water.

      Party Saver..stands up to its name
      I bought this in a desperate need to clear my cloudy pool before a baby shower/bbq I was having. Tried for two weeks to clear my pool with several different clarifiers, nothing worked. I was stressed and thought I was going to have to cover it up as it was an eye sore and no one was going to be able to swim. In a last ditch effort I ordered these to see if it could stand up to its name. I thought expensive but had spent more on other chemicals. I put it in the filter basket at 10 PM before bed ... read more and by 9 am the next morning I was shocked to see the pool was no longer cloudy and I could actually see the bottom of the pool. I don't normally leave reviews but had to on this. This shell was a true party saver and stands up to its name. MIRACLE CLEAR.

      Best Clarifer Available
      Have used other clarifiers that were more expensive and this is far superior. Just apply around pool surface once per week and your pool will sparkle. No diluting. Great product.

      Fantastic stuff
      We use Baquacil in our pool and when we opened it this June-it was so cloudy-you couldn't even see the bottom of the shallow end. After 2 wks of back and forth to the dealer-regulating the PH and Alkalinity-still-no progress. We kept pouring money into shock and still no progress. I read the ad for the Ultra-clear and figured, what have we got to lose, we tried everything else. Well, a week later when I received it-we poured in the appropriate amount and within 2 days the entire pool was clear. ... read more Thank You for such a great product.

      Very nice product
      Discovered the cube last year.... was having major problems w/ algae, as my pool is surrounded by trees. Just a few days after dropping the cube into my skimmer basket, the water was perfectly clear and stayed clear all summer long. It also reduced my shock consumpion by 2/3. I highly recommend this to anyone struggling w algae or cloudy water. I am using again this year w same great results!!

      JUST...WOW
      Literally grew up taking care of pools my whole life from parents house to mine. We have a 40x20x9 inground. This one cube works AWESOME! Water has not been so sparkling clear for so long with other liquid clarifiers ever! We will def be purchasing this every year. My 3" chlorine puck consumption has been cut in half this year! Buying another now for my moms pool and if it does the same no doubt this would be the best pool chemical product i have used in 30 years of maintaining pools. I was ... read more skeptical like the rest and NEVER write reviews...this product deserves it esp when we keep getting comments on how awesome the water looks! Best 20 bucks spent on my pool in years!

      Amazing!!!!! Life Saver!!!!
      This is the greatest pool product ever! My pool was in bad shape last fall & I closed it without any treatment. This spring it was even worse! I thought I would have to drain my pool and start over. My pool "professional" even said it would take at least a week for my water to clear up enough to see the bottom of the pool. He gave me a regime to follow and said to call when the water was close to being clear. I put the 1st Aid in, and the water not only cleared up in a day and a half, but in 2 ... read more days it was absolutely sparkling! I called him and he didn't believe me! The water looks better than it ever has! My husband, who hates the pool, was even impressed!

      I Love This Product!!!
      Pool First Aid and has been a lifesaver for us this year. We opened our pool and it turned a horrible brown color-found out the iron was from an old pool ladder we used to have. We have tried over $200 in products since April '07 trying to clear up the pool. All the readings were perfect but it was so cloudy you couldn't see the bottom. Pool First Aid is phenominal the way it cleared our pool. Four days later, the water is crystal clear and the scum line around the liner has begun to disappear. ... read more We plan on using all their products to maintain, close and open our pool from now on.

      Pool Aid
      I have an above ground 18' ft. round pool. Took off winter cover (NON Mesh) and opened up pool as usual. Water was cloudy and dark. Rebalanced all chemicals and got that right but water remained cloudy even after a couple of days. I have a sand filter so just kept sending a few inches of pool water to WASTE (then backwash, rinse, filter) and then replaced those few inches with FRESH water. Did this every other day. Checked water chemical balance daily -- all good. Would maybe only need to add ... read more more Chlorine shock to assist in killing algae, etc. Water still cloudy a week later. After a week of still not seeing the bottom and not wanting to spend $$$$ on chemicals not needed. I tried POOL AID and you should KEEP your filter running!! Do not shut if off. Next morning, saw the pool bottom!!! Dead stuff dropped down so and I vacuumed off to WASTE cycle and got almost all of it OFF off pool bottom! An amazing, quick working, timesaver product! Who knew? Did a second round of Pool Aid (half of the first round)...just to get it crystal clear....I will see it this this afternoon..and I'm sure the water will now be even more clear! This saved me tons of work and buying useless chemicals. I am impressed and would recommend if you do not want to waste time and money. TRY this first! Then see if it's anything else.

      Cleared nasty algae bloom
      Had perfect storm for algae: high pool temp, rain showers, and away for a week. Sweeping, shocking, algecide did not work. Superfloc cleared pool in one application.

      Finally Cleared Up My Pool
      My pool clouded up terribly after my son shut-off the return valves while the pump ran for a day. I tried Pool Perfect, several clarrifiers, algecides, shock, metal removers, etc. - none of them did a single thing but waste alot of money and time. Within a hour of putting this in the pool it started clearing up the water. After an overnight with the pump turned off, the water was completely clear. Takes a little work, though. After the water clears you must vacumn the pool manually (no ... read more auto-cleaners) while the filter is in the WASTE position, thus wasting ALOT of water. But, when all else failed, this worked like a charm, just be patient!

      Awesome! I am completely amazed with this product
      After owning my pool for 8 years (no problems), I have struggled with cloudy water in my 20x40 inground pool for over a month (after spring opening). After 2 completely perfect water tests at the pool store and 35 pounds of granular shock, 2 bottles of algeacide and a bottle of clarifier (water still cloudy)..........I discovered this product. The pool was completely cloudy when I put the stuff in, 12 hours later it was completely clear (thick, white junk at the bottom). This is the only pool ... read more product that has ever BLOWN ME AWAY! Somehow, I don't think my local pool store wanted me to make this discovery! Super Floc Out will be part of my pool opening procedures every year from now on!

      This really is 'Super"
      I love this stuff to get the pool looking it's best. Most often I use it once a season after opening and its stabilized. It seems to collect any fine particles and get them out.

      Excellent product, definitely recommended

      Worked Overnight
      Wow this stuff is great! Our pump went out and the water got a little cloudy in the few days it was out. Put the super clarifier in and the next morning all material had settled to bottom and water was clearest I have ever seen it.

      Excellent Product
      I have used Pool Perfect for the last 7 years. To us, it's a worry free product that I won't be without. Keeps our pool clean, no water lines or build up of lotions.

      Super product
      This is the best product I have found for removing body oil and suntan lotions/screens from the pool. It instantly dissolves that greasy ring that accumulates in the skimmer or at the top of the water line around the liner. Keeps the water sparkling clean. You have to try it.

      Works Great
      Our pool had a cloudy look, even thought all the chemicals levels were good. After using this product our pool looked beautiful. We have had to been adding additional chemicals, after using pool perfect our chemical reading are great with adding less chemicals. Not sure if it is because of using pool perfect or that we have not been in the pool as it is now cool, but we need to add less chemicals now.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Clarifiers

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    More About Pool Clarifiers

    In The Swim pool water clarifiers work by causing fine debris particles to coagulate into larger particles which can then be removed from the pool water through the pool filter system. In The Swim's pool clarifiers are available in a ultra-concentrated formula so you can achieve water clarity while using half the dosage rates of other swimming pool clarifiers.


    How Do Clarifiers Work? 

    Pool clarifiers act as coagulants; positively charged polymers are attracted to negatively charged particles floating in the pool. Particles that are too small to be filtered are coagulated together into larger, more easily filtered clumps. After adding a pool clarifier, your filter does the work for you, clearing the water until such point that the filter needs cleaning. 


    Who Needs to Use Pool Clarifiers?

    Pool clarifiers can benefit any pool owner who wants a sparkling clear pool, with less visible particles floating in the water. Pools with large DE filters should not need to use clarifiers, but sand and cartridge filters can pass particles of visible size, making your pool look hazy, dull or cloudy. Clarifiers add clarity to the pool water, and are useful after spring opening, after algae battles, or as a filter aid to help undersized or poor performing pool filters. 


    When Should You Not Use Clarifiers? 

    • - Immediately after shocking the pool, high chlorine can destroy clarifiers. Wait until chlorine level returns to normal.
    • - Within 3 days of a previous clarifier treatment; over-dosing with clarifier can have the opposite effect, acting as a dispersant! 
    • - If you have a DE pool filter. Polymer clarifiers can clog DE filter grids. Use a chitin based clarifier instead, like Sea-Klear or our Ultra-Clear

    Are Enzymes also Pool Clarifiers? 

    Not exactly, pool enzymes are a natural product that can be used to remove oils and organic debris in the pool water. Enzymes are often blended with clarifiers for a multi-purpose treatment, in products such as Pool Perfect, Pool First Aid, or Free & Klear, for faster water clarity. Pool enzymes also clean your pool filter by removing oily deposits that make filtering less efficient.
