    Swimming Pool Clarifiers Buyer's Guide

    pool-clarifiers

    Swimming pool clarifiers use some real science to keep your pool clear! When added to the pool, the positively charged clarifier cations seek out anything that is negatively charged, including most floating particles and algae in a pool.

    The polymer keeps working, attracting more and more particles to itself, like a spinning planet in the early stages of planetary development. Eventually, the particle size increases to a point where your pool filter is able to remove it from the water.

    Today's post is a pool clarifier buyer's guide, to help you select the best product for your needs. There are so many pool clarifiers to consider, here's a few of my favorites.

    CLARIFIERS-AND-POOL-FILTER-TYPES

    For cartridge or DE filters, be sure to select a pool clarifier that works with all filter types. There are many that will 'gum up' the fabric of DE grids or filter cartridges, and should only be used with sand filters.

    Pool Clarifier Pitfalls to Avoid:

    1. Don't overdose; carefully follow the recommended dosage. Some clarifiers cause the opposite effect when overdosed, making the pool even cloudier. After 72 hours, you can add a second dose if needed.
    2. Run the filter 24/7 if you are trying to clear a cloudy pool quickly. Backwash as needed.
    3. Don't add a metal sequestrant at the same time as adding a pool clarifier. The negative charge of most "metal magnet" chemicals can attract the positively charged clarifier, and make the pool cloudy.
    4. Be sure to use a pool clarifier that will work for your filter types, if you have a cartridge or DE filter.
