    Pool Clarifiers

    1. 9 years ago
      Did a Great Job
      After being gone for a week, we returned to a pool that had the color of Mountain Dew. So I shocked the pool and added the clarifier. In two days, the pool was clean and I just needed to vacuum .

      Great Product
      Once you have your pool water turn to a cloudy blue, the Clarifier is the exact product to settle floating algae to the bottom and help the filter to clarify the water. I recommend use of this.

      Best clarifier ever

      Super is the correct adjective
      Super Clarifier is such an outstanding product. I have to mark the calendar to assure I don't forget to put it in the pool. The water stays so clear and sparkling, it never "needs" to be clarified. This is really remarkable since the pool water is extremely high in TDS (total dissolved solids).

      Excellent product
      Hands down this is the best product for keeping your pool clear all summer! I discovered this product 8 years ago when my 7 year old son thought it looked cool at the pool store. After reading about what it does I thought I would give it a try and I'm so glad I did! I used to use liquid clarifier and found that it caused more problems such as foam developing and high copper readings causing steps to turn brown and cloudy water. With the miraClear shell tablet I just put in pump basket and that's ... read more it. It slowly dissolves over time and last up to a month. Depending on how much you run your pool and higher water temperatures. Back washing is not recommended and will dissolve it quicker to waste. I don't have problems with bugs sticking to the gel since I clean basket out after it has dissolved. I notice no change in pressure when using this product. Everyone always asks what my secret is in keeping a crystal clear pool and I always think back when my 7 year old saw the blue shell and thought it looked cool.

      Lifesaver for spring cleanup
      The 1st spring we opened our pool after moving into our house the pool had a terrible algae problem. We were able to rid the pool of the algae but couldn't get the water cleared up. We tried several different products from our local pool store and finally I ordered the Miraclear shell. I put it in the pump basket and the next morning the water was clear!! Every opening now just in case, I use it to make sure I won't have any issues with cloudy water.

      Works Great!
      Our pool was cloudy and green and nothing seemed to help. Tried all the kits, clarifiers and running the pump 24/7. Came across this and decided to give it a try. If it didn't work, we were going to drain the pool. I put it in the basket, closed the lid and ran the pump. The next morning, I could already see results. After three days, the water was crystal clear. I've used one again this season and it cleared the water overnight. This product is truly a great product. I highly recommend it.

      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!

      Magical
      I tried everything for over a month to clear up my pool water. You could not see half way down in the water. I have a 33'x18'x54" pool 19,000 gallons of water. I tried 2 different types of clarifier and everything else I could imagine short of draining the pool. Well I decided to give this product a try on a last ditch effort before draining most of the water. Well I followed the directions and put 16OZ of this product in the pool let it circulate for 2 hours shut the pump off and over night ... read more magic. Everything went to the bottom I vaccumed to waste and now my pool is crystal clear. Thanks in the swim for such a great working product.

      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 Product would recoomend to anyone
      I found this product last year after 10 years of struggling with a cloudy pool. I will never be without it again. Just drop it in the filter baskets and within a few days the water really does "sparkle". I use 1/2 the amount of shock and algaecide as I used to so it pays for itself immediately. I would recommend this product to anyone with a pool.

      Cloudy water clear in one day!
      My pool was cloudy at the end of last Summer. I could not get it cleared. It was clear for a few weeks when I opened it this year, but went cloudy fast. Chemicals all look good. After reading reviews on Sparkle Plus, I decided it was worth a try. I ordered it on Wednesday morning, received it on Thursday afternoon, and had crystal clear water on Friday evening! Totally amazed and satisfied!

      Water Sparkles Like Diamonds !!!
      I'm a new user for Sparkle Plus. My water always looks pretty good but I thought it could use a little pizzazz. We have a LOT of surrounding foliage and have to combat the mess constantly. So I tried one of the little cubes, figuring it probably wouldn't make much difference. But, boy was I wrong. In 24 hours after adding "the cube," my pool was sparkling like a diamond in the sun. I will update this review if it changes. But for now, my pool looks better than it ever has -- with a minimum of ... read more effort and at low cost too.

      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.

      Great Clarifier
      Usually I can get my pool crystal clear after opening in the spring, but this year it showed all the correct chemical levels but the cloudiness was still there. I backwashed, I re-cleaned the sand filter, I used the clarifier from the pool shop where I usually go, I tried using more of it, etc., It helped a little, but not to my satisfaction. All they could suggest was to change out the sand in the filter. Well, I didn't want to go through all that, so I looked online and read reviews of all ... read more the clarifiers. Ultra Clear sounded like it might work. I have an above ground oval pool with a deep end and one of the reviewers said they used a whole bottle of Ultra Clear. I backwashed again to get all residue out and used 10 oz. Ultra Clear. In about two days my pool was crystal clear and sparkling like it should and you could see every speck of dirt on the bottom! It worked, thank goodness.

      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.

      Great product!
      We went on vacation and left the pool with the pump off. When we got back home, we had a bad algae problem. We got the algae cleared, and used clarifiers, but the water stayed cloudy. I ordered this product and it cleared up the cloudy water which made me really happy. I would greatly recommend this product to a friend, and in fact, already did to a coworker.

      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.

      Excellent!
      We had an algae bloom from trapped water in a damaged solar cover. We killed the algea, but the pool became foggy. We tried everything to get rid the fog. Spent lots of money in the process. Finally, I read some reviews on this product and for the price thought it was worth a try. It cleared the pool up overnight! Now, I keep a bottle on hand. At the hint of a fog I put a dose in and the water is crystal clear and smooth feeling. A wonderful product.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Clarifiers

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Pool Clarifiers Coagulate Small Particles

    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.
