    Water Balancers

    1. 2 years ago
      Correct chemical balance
      When opening the pool this spring I had low alkalinity. Used this product to bring the pool water back into balance. Worked as advertised.

      Works great
      I bought this product a month ago because we where having problems getting the chemicals balanced which was causing our water to have a green tint. We applied a cap full in our pool in the evening and in the morning the pool was clear and the chemicals balanced. I would recommend this product to anyone.

      Best Purchase Ever
      I started using this product two seasons ago. We were having an awful problem with algae and cloudiness. We have a 17x35 foot inground pool. I can't begin to tell you how much we spent on algaecides and other products just to get our water clear. I found this product and ordered it. I will never stop using it. This past summer we did not have any problems what so ever with our pool water. Was sparkling clear all summer and when we had opened it up in the spring we had no algae to worry about. We ... read more also noticed that we don't use as much chlorine as we have in the past years. Love this product just wish it wasn't so costly. Hope they keep manufacturing it. Makes our lives so much easier for our pool maintenance and keeps the water sparkling clear. Thumbs up! I would recommend this product for everyone.

      Sparkly clear pool ... finally, again!
      I normally don't write reviews (although I do read them), but this product was just like magic. I have been fighting a cloudy pool all summer and had given up when I came across this product. I decided to try it despite our pool not being clear to begin with. Within a couple of days I noticed that I could start to see the bottom again. Now a few weeks later its like the pool that we had when we first put up our pool Thank you pHree & Clear! Excellent Product!!

      Love It
      I have used this product for the last 3 pool seasons. It has made maintaining my pool so much easier. After I open my pool for the season I just add phree and clear tablets to a 1/1 ratio with my choline tablets. I have not had to add any other balancing agents. My pool is always perfect. It makes the water sparkle.

      Use an old Gym Sock.
      CYA is essential to a balanced pool...think of it as "Chlorine Sunscreen". Sunlight degrades chlorine fast and if you have no CYA, you can be back at zero free chlorine on a sunny day in hours. As others have mentioned, it is very slow to dissolve. It WILL dissolve, it just takes awhile. The worst thing you can do is just dump it into your skimmer, as it will just sit in your filter and even raise your filter pressure. Then when you backwash, you wash out all the CYA with it. The best method I ... read more have found is to pour the amount you need into an old gym sock & knot the top. I then take some string and tie the sock in front of the filter return jet flow. Thanks to the constant water agitation the sock will be empty in a matter of days without granules all over your pool bottom.

      Buy the 50 lb bag and save money
      I bought (2) 50 lb bags due to cheaper cost and stored the PH+ in old chlorine pails with a handmade label on it. I have a 50,000 gal pool so it takes a lot to adjust the ph when needed. The bags are definitely cheaper and stores very well in empty, rinsed out chlorine pails. I buy chlorine in 50 lb pails due to the cheaper cost as they can be stored for up to 2 years with no problem. Then I use the emprty rinsed out pails to store PH+.

      Great product!!
      My PH was really low. I ordered the PH increaser and it arrived just a couple of days later. Increased the PH perfectly!! Easy to order, fast delivery, great service!!

      Chlorine Neutralizer did lower chlorine levels
      This stuff really works. Getting the right amount was a "guess" but did get it down - and fast.
    3. 2 years ago
      IT WORKS!
      The pool chlorine was high for several weeks unable to swim. Used this and the following day the levels were down to where they needed to be for us to enjoy our pool ! THE KIDS WERE VERY HAPPY!

      Works Great
      Works as described and in the swim sends it to my door, I don't have to go to pool store and lug the stuff home. In the Swim has a chart that explains how much to add to your pool,

      Easiest Product To Use
      We have well water and when we had it tested there was NO metals in it whatsoever. We have some of the best drinking water ever, but it wasn't fit to swim in, so the first thing we had to do was add the calcium hardness to it. We bought this container from In The Swim and it was delivered right to our door. We added it to the pool which was quick and easy, since the directions were right on the container and it did the job perfectly! We've only had to add it that one time. Thanks In The Swim!! ... read more Now I buy all of our pool products from you!!

      How much does it contain?
      Since buying this product my hair and muscles have grown significantly. I am not sure what purity of weapons grade plutonium is in this product, but it definately cleaned up my pool, my neighbors pool, and the surrounding lakes are now all algae free for 50 miles!

      Great Price
      At just shy of 100 grand this muriatic acid did the job!
    1. 9 years ago
      Better than Muriatic
      A little pricier method of reducing ph than muriatic acid, but much better odor (almost none), and a better symbiotic chemistry for salt water pools. Water so clear it looks like liquid air. If you don't like the smell of liquid acids, you will love this method.

      Awesome product
      In the swim has saved me so much money!!! I have been using them for two years now and there products have the same ingredients as our local pool supply store who put our pool in has and it arrives the next day. Way cheaper too. You U want a good product at a great price and our water has never looked better. Don't try and save and go to Rural King or Walmart and by your chemicals because they are not quality and u will have some screwed up water

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Water Balancers

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Why Pool Water Balancers are Important

    Pool water balancers help you manage water quality and avoid pool staining from improper water chemistry. In addition, pool chlorine levels are regulated by pool water balance levels, and incorrect ranges cause skin and eye irritation, and destroys chlorine's ability to kill bacteria and other harmful contaminants.


    •    - High pH and alkalinity levels also makes chlorine very sluggish and at a pH of 8.0 over 50% of your chlorine is wasted.
    •    - Low pH is also a problem, and at a pH of 7.0, chlorine is overly active and depletes more rapidly.
    •    - High pH and alkalinity levels can cause unsightly scale deposits, cloudy water and eye irritation.
    •    - Low pH and alkalinity levels can cause etching and corrosion to pool equipment, covers and pool surfaces. 
    •    - Low alkalinity levels makes your pH level erratic and unstable, even after adjustment.
    •    - High alkalinity levels makes your pH level overly stable and difficult to adjust pH up or down.
    •    - Low calcium hardness creates aggressive water that seeks to satisfy a demand for hardness, in troublesome ways. 
    •    - Low stabilizer levels allows the sun to burn-off chlorine as fast as you can add it, resulting in unsanitary pool water.

    In order to maintain swimmer comfort and health and to protect the condition of pool surfaces and equipment, it is important to keep both pool ph chemicals on-hand. Other water balance levels are slower to change, but be sure to test and adjust alkalinity, hardness and stabilizer levels every spring, and each month during the season. With regular pool water testing, it's easy for any pool owner to make chemical adjustments and maintain balanced pool water. 

    •    - pH Increaser is a base used to raise low pH levels when 7.2 or lower
    •    - pH Reducer is an acid used to lower pH levels when 7.8 or higher (also lowers Total Alkalinity)
    •    - Alkalinity Increaser is used to raise low alkalinity levels when below 80 ppm
    •    - Calcium Hardness Increaser is used to raise low hardness levels when below 200 ppm
    •    - Stabilizer or Conditioner (Cyanuric Acid) is used to protect chlorine from the sun, best in range of 20-50 ppm

    As with all of our products at In The Swim, our water balance chemicals are of first-class quality and are available at economical, affordable prices. With the help of a good test kit and quality pool balancers, pool owners can easily maintain high water quality to protect their pool surfaces, reduce chlorine expense, and protect the health of swimmers. Water is balanced when pH, alkalinity, calcium hardness, chlorine and stabilizer levels are all within their recommended ranges: 

    •    - pH: 7.2 to 7.8
    •    - Total Alkalinity: 80 ppm to 120 ppm
    •    - Calcium Hardness: 200 ppm to 400 ppm
    •    - Stabilizer (Cyanuric Acid): 20-50 ppm
    •    - Free Chlorine: 1.0-2.0 ppm
