      Love this stuff, works like a charm :). It's so nice to not have to handle the liquid acid, especially when you are as clumsy as I am!

      pHree & Clear Balance Tablets
      I really like to use Phree & Clear Balance Tablets in my pool all summer. Once I get my pool water balanced I use Phree & Clear balance tablets according to directions of one tab to each tab of chlorine and my water remains relitively balanced all by itself. I spend less time taking a water sample off to get it tested and more time enjoying my pool.

      Easy Pool Maintenance
      We installed our pool about 6 weeks ago. After our initial water fill, we had to increase the pH. Since then I have used 2 phree and clears in a floater every week and have had to do nothing else!! We also use the 3" chlorine tabs, weekly non-chlorine shock, and weekly algaecide 50 for maintenance. Our pool water looks awesome and it take so little time to care for the pool.

      Did the job!
      Our pool had a ph of about 6.6 - 6.8 at the start of the season. We were able to bring all other water parameters into proper range, but needed to bring the ph up, and out if its acidic state. Used this product, as directed, and it got us dialed-in to 7.2 - 7.4 very quickly. Be sure to dilute in water before adding to pool (per directions). Get some!

      Can't do without it in Wisconsin
      I can't open my pool without this. When you have a big pool you need lots of the ph up . There isn't enough baking soda in the world to balance it seems. And as with all pool chemicals, please read the instructions.

      alkalinity extremely important
      I purchase this on a yearly basis for my pool. The quality is very good. I check my pool every 3 or 4 days for chemical performance. Adding the recommended dosage as needed keeps my pool perfect and I use alot use less pH up and chlorine.

      Great Product
      Using Chemicals from "In the Swim" has made the maintainence on our 30 foot pool so easy that 15 min a day is all thats required to keep it clean and test the water balance. It has stayed stable all season with less cost than ever before. I'm very happy with their specials and the savings on S & H and utilize those to buy volume enough for us every time I can. Big savings overall. Keep up the great work !!!!

      Awesome liquid conditioner
      I diluted it out, in other gallon bottles, and it completely dissolved nicely as I spread it by hand over the pool surface. I guess I will know how good it is, when I open the pool in the spring!!!! Much easier than the powder.

      I ABSOLUTELY Love this stuff!
      I have owned a pool for 30 years and have never had an easier opening and summer than 2007. I put it in last fall before closing the pool and again upon opening. In the spring, I had the CLEAREST water ever in 30 years. Quickest opening I ever did. My chlorine use was literally cut in half this year and I used ABSOLUTELY NO ALGAECIDE this year. My friends who did not use this had all kinds of algae problems this year. Me... NONE!!! I will never be without it again. It is AMAZING stuff. And I am ... read more a hard person to convince of something. Try it. You will be GRATEFUL you did!

      Just what I needed!
      I purchased the chlorine neutralizer from In the Swim because they offered the size I needed. The price was excellent and they shipped it quickly; we received it just 2-3 days after ordering. I will purchase this from In the Swim again.

      Chlorine Neutralizer did lower chlorine levels
      This stuff really works. Getting the right amount was a "guess" but did get it down - and fast.

      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.

      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!

    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
