    Chlorine Free Chemicals

    1. 9 years ago
      PhosFree Believer
      9 year user. Got first sample from my pool builder. I hate the dangerous chemicals in algaecides, and don't like the foamy water, algaecide taste or water ring from dead algae. Open pool with shock & algaecide. Vaccuum and clean the waste. Balance pH, test phosphate. Use phosfree if elevated, then weekly phosfree + pool perfect. Keeps water sparkling with no foam, no water ring and no algae, even through August. Will occaisonally add a dose for unusually hot weather or a lot of rain. (I don't ... read more find the spring / fall treatment to be useful. Even with use at recommended dose, still need algaecide to open.)

      Worked great!
      Two applications, 1/2 bottle each, two weeks apart and the phosphates went to zero!

      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.

      Love Aqua Silk
      I have been using this chlorine free product for the last two years and I love it. No harsh smells, easy on my kids skin, when used properly water is crystal clear and lasts longer than the recommended weekly dosage. Highly recommend, just wish they still sold the system bundle pack!

      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.

      Power Ionizer
      I have had the Power Ionizer for over 18 years would not trade it for anything. When we got our pool we were told all we had to do was pour a gallon of bleach in it weekly that is all we do, if it rains alot we will have to shock the pool. We do nothing else NO added chemicals daily or weekly. The Power Ionizer does everything its that easy I love it.

      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.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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.

      Great fit!
      It's a great fit and value compared to price of new filter. Easily installed and works great.

      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.

      Nature 2 is the best
      The most important purchase I make each year is a nature 2 replacement cartridge, it keeps my pool crystal clear all summer long.
    3. 3 years ago
      Nature 2 is ythe only way to go!
      The Nature 2 system is by far the best system for a maintenance free pool!

      Buy this product every year from In the Swim - best price and packaging!! Works great to keep the pool chlorinated at just the right level without having to check it daily.

      Love how it works now that I have the correct one!
      I bought this and the mineral cartridge didn’t fit! I had to reorder a different one! Make sure you have the right one for your frog!

      Five Stars for the Pool Frog Inground
      I have been very pleased with the Pool Frog Inground Mineral Purifiers. I have had the Pool Frog in use since my pool was installed and will continue to use in the future.

    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! :-)
