    Water Balancers

      Great Value
      I purchase the Soda Ash in 50 lb. bags due to the amount of acid rain I get here in Ohio. I think the 50 lb. bag is great because I always have enough on hand to re-balance the pH in my large 40,000 pool. Buying in the 50 lb. size is most economical, and will last me through the season. Highly recommended!

      Best Product
      This product was great to balance out our PH in the our pool, I have and will recommend this product to my friends and you should try it too. If you're having any problems at all with your PH levels, this will take care of it.

      Awesome product
      In the swim has saved me so much money!!! I have been using them for two years now and there products have the same ingredients as our local pool supply store who put our pool in has and it arrives the next day. Way cheaper too. You U want a good product at a great price and our water has never looked better. Don't try and save and go to Rural King or Walmart and by your chemicals because they are not quality and u will have some screwed up water

      Alkalinity Increase in AR
      Wow! I have bought a lot of different products and have never had the Alkalinity level up to where it needs to be in the last few years. Every time it rains my balance fails plus we loose about 1/2 inch of water per day due to the heat and humidity levels. I bought the bucked, poored half in the pool, the next day poured the remainder in the pool. My PH is perfect!!!!

      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 !!!!

      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.

      Easy to use
      being a pool owner for over 20 years and using in the swim products have made my pool wonderful year after year but remember the pH is the most important thing you can do after your pool is clean make sure your pH is at the proper level and buy all your products from in the swim

      So much safer
      Mom is the “pool boy” at our house so I love this stuff in comparison to liquid acid. No splash, no leaking, easy and light weight, small bottles that take up a quarter of the space. Wins all around

      Love it!
      I just ordered another 4 bottles of this powdered acid. I was skeptical when I ordered it for the first time and was very surprised at how well it worked. It's so much easier to use then the liquid and no harsh acid smell! It's even seems to work a little better than the liquid but that might be because you don't have to use as much. I am hooked and will be using this from now on. With my salt pool I am always fighting high PH & alkalinity and this seems to help keep it in control.

      Great product
      This product dissolves instantly!! Works great too, in bringing down PH

      My Favorite Product
      I love this product. It is so easy to use! I just put one tablet in with 3-4 chlorine tablets and that's it. I have NOT had to add liquid acid since I started using this product, which is a major plus for me as the acid fumes were horrible! I only had to use soda once after a huge rain. My pool stays in perfect balance with this product. In the long run, I think it is less expensive because before I was having to buy soda and acid then hoping I got the right amounts to keep my pool in balance. I ... read more also find that I trust this product so much, I do not test my pool water as often as I did before using this product, which also saves on pool testing liquids.

      Sparkly clear pool ... finally, again!
      I normally don't write reviews (although I do read them), but this product was just like magic. I have been fighting a cloudy pool all summer and had given up when I came across this product. I decided to try it despite our pool not being clear to begin with. Within a couple of days I noticed that I could start to see the bottom again. Now a few weeks later its like the pool that we had when we first put up our pool Thank you pHree & Clear! Excellent Product!!

      Love It
      I have used this product for the last 3 pool seasons. It has made maintaining my pool so much easier. After I open my pool for the season I just add phree and clear tablets to a 1/1 ratio with my choline tablets. I have not had to add any other balancing agents. My pool is always perfect. It makes the water sparkle.

      What I Would Expect
      10# size comes in a plastic pillow. I dissolve it into the pool in a sock hung near the filter outlet. Only problem is you need a different foldable container to store the rest for future use.

      Great Price
      At just shy of 100 grand this muriatic acid did the job!

      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!

      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.

      Fast response
      Product works ad described. Great for quick way to remove excess chlorine

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

    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
