      Great Price
      An annual replacement of the mineral reservoir is a must for my system. The local pool company who built the pool charges 50% more than you guys. Thanks for not ripping off customers who have to have a proprietary item.

      BETTER THEN CHLORINE
      I retired from an Oil Refinery and know how dangerous Chlorine is to our bodies. Even when I showered at work, I put a showerhead on the shower to filter it out. We have well water and don't have to worry about it at home. After much research, I found that Peroxide a great alternative for our pool and spa but, that it is also very good for the body. You don't have the after swim chlorine smell, it doesn't sting your eyes and does just as good as chlorine. We are very glad that we switched to peroxide.

      Excellent
      We have had this system for 11 years. Excellent product. The replacment cartridges are pricey, but once the water is balanced, you hardly have to add chlorine.

      Works great!
      I have been using the A2538 cartridge for years. I replace it when I open the pool in the spring. It works great! We use much less chlorine and the pool stays nice and clean.

      This stuff is great!
      I love Nature2! Nature2 is a Silver Nitrate water treatment system that takes the place of Chlorine. Which means no balancing or adding chlorine on a daily basis. The Nature2 dispenser connects to your pump and dispenses Nature2 automatically. Making the pool chlorine free. Maintenace is a breeze. Just vaccuum, add shock, and a small amount of Algecide and Clarifier weekly and you're good to go!! It's great!! The only drawback is that you have to pay $120 for the cartridge all at once. But it's ... read more completely worth it! Cartridges last six months.

      Best Purchase Ever
      I can now open my pool earlier for my Grandchildren as there is no work involved in maintaining the pool and large chemical bills. The liner and pool equipment do not lose their new feeling from chemical corrison. The liner feels new and no more smell of chemicals in my pool shed. I am purchasing one for my son's pool as a house warming gift and my next door neighbour is now purchasing the unit after see my summers results. I would recommend this unit to anyone.

      Great Upgrade
      I replaced a old DE filter with the new Hayward Pro-Grid. I love the new Perma Glass shell as opposed to my old stainless model. Much improved clamping system, and the new control valve makes backwashing a breeze.

      High quality and easy installation
      Arrival was fast, installing was easy and pool was crystal clear within hours. Easy to read pressure gauge. This filter was a replacement for my 30 year old Hayward de filter

      Excellent Product
      I started with an EC75 "finger style" DE filter. I had a few problems and wound up upgrading to this unit. It seems to be much better made and is much easier to maintain for a few reasons. First, if you add the multiport valve, backwashing, rinsing, draining excess water, etc. can be done with the turn of a wrist. Secondly, the every-few-year maintenance you're supposed to do with a DE filter (i.e. opening it up and hosing all of the membranes off) can be done by removing a single bolt, and none ... read more of the plumbing has to be undone. The EC75 requires the disconnection of the plumbing and the removal of something like 20 bolts. Overall, I'm very happy with this filter, and it's definitely worth the extra money considering that this should be a 10 year investment.

      Really makes my pool sparkle
      Installed this on my 23,500 gal pool earlier this summer. You have to shock the pool afterwards (with chlorine), but after that I cautiously let the chlorine level drop below 1 ppm, and went from using 4 tablets weekly to 2 tabs per week. Water has never looked better, even with half the chlorine! I still shock the pool 2x per month, just to be sure the pool is sanitary, but I give Nature2 Express a thumbs up, if you want to cut down on chlorine.

      Great Product
      My pool was so green it was like pea soup. I purchased over $200.00 dollars of chemicals to clean my pool and it was still green. So I found the Nature 2 Express Mineral Purifier and purchased it 2 days after I installed it my water is clear all the green is gone. Also it's so easy to install it took about 15mins. Super great product very pool owner needs one.

      healthy family
      I love the mineral purifier! It allows me to keep the chlorine level at .5, and I only have to raise it and/or add algaecide during the hottest month! Thank you for a product that allows me to keep my family healthier!

      best product, best deal
      It is now a known fact that algae cannot survive without phosphates, and Phos-Free easily brings your pool's phosphate level to zero. Since using this, I have never had even a hint of algae (and it was a significant fight before then). Plus, the 3 liter bottle from In The Swim costs about the same as what my local store charges for a 2 liter bottle. I usually get 2 bottles (which meets the free shipping level) and I'm good for the season. Not only that but a free test kit is included so you know ... read more it's working. All around, my favorite item from In The Swim.

      Phos Free
      I have used Phos Free for 4 years now. I would recommend this product, and have done so, for the ease of use, the great job it does cleaning up the spring algae and also for the great job of keeping the algae in checkall summer long. As it keeps the algae away, it also keeps those annoying "swimmy bugs" away. I hate those bugs, but have no problem with them as long as I use the Phos Free once a week. This has been the best thing for a pool since Chlorine!

      Great Customer Service
      Similar to another poster, I followed the instructions and it clogged my DE Filter. I tried to bump it (it's not bump capable). I wound up having to completely backwash the product out. HOWEVER, I was still pegging a 1000+ p/bb on Phosphates - so I thought I'd give it another try. I called their customer service department to ask how to proceed. Not only did they offer a solution - they provided some free maintenance product after I bring the phosphates down. It always help to call! I'll try and ... read more do a follow-up post after my next batch. Therefore, if you have problems - definitely call the vendor; they appear to stand strongly behind this product.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Chlorine Free Chemicals

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    More About Chlorine-Free Pool Chemicals

    More pool owners are making the switch to chlorine-free pool chemicals. The smell and taste of chlorine can be off-putting to many swimmers and some people even have allergic reactions to chlorine. Some pool owners therefore prefer chlorine free pool chemicals to eliminate completely or greatly reduce the amount of chlorine in their pool water. Alternative chlorine-free pool chemicals use natural processes and nature's own chemistry to sanitize pool water. 


    Reducing Chlorine Demand

    The most effective way to reduce chlorine use is to add supplemental sanitizers. Ozone, UV Systems and Mineral Purifiers all allow you to use 1/2 as much chlorine, while enjoying an improvement in water clarity. Enzymes reduce organic load in the water and clean your filter, naturally. Clarifiers and Algaecides also can help you reduce the amount of chlorine needed on a daily basis, and further reduces the need for shocking. In most cases however, you will still need an oxidizer, occasional pool shock treatments, although chlorine-free pool shock can be used just as effectively in most cases. 

    Going Completely Chlorine Free

    You can go completely chlorine free by doubling up on supplemental sanitizers. One such method is to use either a Ozone generator or UV system combined with a Mineral Purifier, like Nature2 or Pool Frog - and together they can manage almost all of your pool's sanitation needs. Of crucial importance to such a chlorine-free pool is proper water balance, a very effective pool filter, a clean pool, and weekly shocking with non-chlorine shock. Additional support can be found with natural Algaecides, Enzymes or Clarifiers if needed.   

    Aqua Silk Chlorine Free Pool Treatment

    Aqua Silk is a simple 3-step pool sanitation system that is completely chlorine free, relying on powerful disinfectants used in hospitals and other places where sanitation is critical. In The Swim carries Aqua Silk, a proprietary blend of biguanide sanitizer, peroxide oxidizer and algaecide, sold in a convenient kit. You will still need to maintain balanced pool water, keep a clean pool, and run the filter long enough each day to maintain water clarity. But, you can say goodbye to chlorine forever! In fact, if you do accidentally use chlorine in an Aqua Silk pool, it may turn a sickly orange color! :-)
