    Chlorine Free Chemicals

    1. 1 year ago
      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.

      Going on 15 years
      I was skeptical when my pool guy installed the nature2 years ago, but when I neglected to buy a new cartridge the next year I sure noticed it! The minerals really make it easier to manage the water and gives it a sparkly look. Definitely do not neglect to replace the cart since then, saves me at least as much as it costs, on less chlorine tablets. I only need less than 25 lbs tabs for the whole summer (27,500 gals, inground). Love my nature2 filter!

      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!

      BETTER THEN CHLORINE
      I retired from an Oil Refinery and know how dangerous Chlorine is to our bodies. Even when I showered at work, I put a showerhead on the shower to filter it out. We have well water and don't have to worry about it at home. After much research, I found that Peroxide a great alternative for our pool and spa but, that it is also very good for the body. You don't have the after swim chlorine smell, it doesn't sting your eyes and does just as good as chlorine. We are very glad that we switched to peroxide.

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

      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.

      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.

      Works great!
      I have been using the A2538 cartridge for years. I replace it when I open the pool in the spring. It works great! We use much less chlorine and the pool stays nice and clean.

      Great alternative to chlorine
      This product really cuts down on the use of chlorine. I use a lot less now and our bathing suits last longer and no more burning eyes!!!

      Nature 2 is ythe only way to go!
      The Nature 2 system is by far the best system for a maintenance free pool!

      Frog
      I think this is the best system on the market. It has to be the easiest way to keep your pool clean!

      Quick delivery
      I’ve had a pool for 15 years and this is the first time I’ve ordered the pool frog mineral pac online. The local pool place didn’t have the correct model. So when I was at the store searching online to show them what they used to carry I found the correct model for s cheaper price.

      Pool Frog is okay but expensive to maintain
      BAC pac works to keep my pool chlorine level up but I am not all that pleased with the Pool Frog system overall. It’s expensive. The “minerals” it uses is really copper so the water gets a bluish tint and sometimes discolors bathing suits. I think a basic chlorinator does the same job more economically.

      I love it!
      I got the ionizer last year & was so impressed with how clean the water stayed & how maintenance free it was. I didn't have to worry about going out of town & asking someone to add chlorine tablets.Someone said the copper was turning their kids hair green but I found out it was mustard algae that turned their hair green. Once I treated that the problem was solved.

      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.

      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.)

      WOW - Best Purchase Ever
      I bought this product hoping to better manage my potential algae problem during the summer when on vacation. Sometimes my husband forgets to check the chemicals if I'm out of town and I would get to come back to an almost green pool. Now it's simple, a few capfuls in the skimmer before leaving and I come back to a worry free pool. I haven't had ANY algae problems even with the solar discs on and leaves in the pool! Simply amazing!!!

      Cheap chemicals
      Phosfree worked great, we've had a pool for over 33 years , Never had to worry about using phosfree until the last few years.chemical companies are making the chemicals cheaper with phosphates thus costing us consumers money.Also watch out for cyanuric acid if this is to high you will have to drain your pool to get rid of it.its on tablets and shock.

    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! :-)
