      lifesaver for pool opening
      I first used this product when we moved into our new house and had a pool for the first time. I had a terrible time getting the water to clear up and tried everything. I had been struggling with cloudy water for 2 weeks and saw this product and decided to try it. It cleared my pool overnight! I use it every opening now or anytime the pool is a bit cloudy from heavy use. It's a lifesaver!

      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!

      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.

      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!

      GREAT PRODUCT
      Had very cloudy water since I closed my pool last winter. Had tried a few different products at closing, and a few more when I opened the pool a few weeks ago. No luck. After reading the reviews here on Super Floc Clarifier I decided to try it. Well it works. Had to do it twice, but water is crystal clear. One bit of advice is that you have to be very careful when vacuuming because the small particles will start moving around and cloud the water again, and also send the return out to waste. You ... read more lose a bit of water, but it's worth it. Water fell to about the bottom level of the skimmer. took about 45 min. to replace the water.

      Life saver!!
      I never saw the bottom of my pool last summer. After many visits from the pool company who installed the pool, they left me with the chore of backwashing the filter 7-8 times a day, which did nothing to clear the pool. Over the winter I made it a point to educate myself on pool maintenance. I opened the pool a month earlier and after initial clean up I used the Floc Out. One bottle did the trick and now I have my sparkling clean pool back! The pool guys indicated that I probably needed to dump ... read more the pool and refill it. . duh!! Thank you so much!

      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.

      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.

      Great product
      We have had a lot of rain and it makes our pool very cloudy. When I use this clarifier it clears it right up.

      I have been buying " In the Swim" Algaecide, Clarifier, and Shock. In all the years of my pool ownership, honestly my pool has never looked so good. I could not be more pleased with these products. Thank you!

      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).

      Worked Well
      I was having some problems with hazy pool water and decided to try the clarifier. The pool cleared up pretty quickly after using the recommended amount of material. Everything dropped to the bottom where I cleaned it up.

      Clarity Makes your Pool Look Great
      Had a clarity problem after killing the green algae but once I added this within a day my pool was clear.

      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!!

      best product ever used
      I was fighting a cloudy pool since last season and tried everything to get water cleared up. read other reviews on this product and thought to give it a try. Cleared up the water in two days and has been sparkling ever since and dont use any algicide, this product is simply great and trouble free.

      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.

      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.

      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.

    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.
