Soft, clear, chlorine-free water is easy to achieve.  That's the philosophy behind SoftSwim.  It's the reason pool owners everywhere are making the big switch to non-chlorine pool care.

BioGuard's SoftSwim Program is ideal for:

  • Not more than 15,000 gallons
  • Pools with excellent circulation, using a sand filter
  • Pump operates at least 12 hour per day
  • Pool has a bottom drain
  • For both Inground or Aboveground pools
  • Great for vinyl liner or fiberglass pools

It's as easy as A-B-C !

Step A:   Prevent algae growth
Step B:   Sanitize to kill bacteria
Step C:   Oxidize & clarify for sparkling clear water

REMEMBER:   Chlorine & biguanide do not mix.   Never use chlorinating products in your SoftSwim pool.
