Enzymes - The Perfect Alternative to Chlorine

Waters Choice enzymes enzymes are a natural, powerful, and healthy way to clean your pool!   In late August of 2020, Hurricane Laura rolled into New Orleans wreaking havoc on many homes and businesses. The storm caused a fire at KIK Custom Products’ Biolab plant that lasted three days.  This particular manufacturing plant was responsible for pool chemicals such as “trichlor” and “dichlor”. 

 

As a result of this, pool professionals and pool owners alike, will possibly need to find pool sanitizing alternatives. Chlorine may not be as readily available as before. But wait! Enzymes are a very proactive approach to conserving chlorine.  They attack and break down oils and organic matter in pool water.  As a result, enzymes free up chlorine for disinfecting purposes. YES!

Other Proactive Actions

 

Additional proactive suggestions that’ll help you manage your pool’s water is regular running of the pump.  Secondly, a variable speed pump might be a handy option.  It’s interesting to know that this type of pool pump saves on electrical costs in the long run.

 

Furthermore, water that’s constantly moving is less likely to become contaminated when compared to stagnant water. It’s important to double check that you’re using the correct amount of enzymes. As a reminder, the small amount of chlorine needed when using our enzyme water treatment saves you money as well.
