Traditionally people have relied solely on chemicals to maintain their pools. Sanitizers have been responsible for: killing bacteria and/or viruses and other living organisms, as well as burning off organic material in the water. While sanitizers are very effective at killing bacteria and disease, some are often not very effective in the oxidation of non-living organics in pool water. Non living organics can be eliminated best with one of natures own biochemical wonders: the enzyme.

Enzymes take on and eliminate the non-living organic workload for the sanitizer. Sanitizers are still necessary to kill bacteria, viruses and other non-living organisms such as:

+ Soaps                                       + Hair Products                                 + Sweat                                     + Shampoo

+ Lotions                                    + Tree sap                                            + Cosmetics                             + Body Oils

+ Deodorant                              + Body Waste                                      + Jet Fuel                                  + Airborne Pollution

+ Antifreeze Residue               + Vegetation                                         + Bird Droppings


When choosing a product to combat the non living organics remember they come for a broad range of sources so you want enzymes that cover a broad range of sources otherwise you will be leaving some non-living organic waste behind to cause future problems in the pool water. We suggest using Natural Chemistry’s Pool+ PHOSfree  as a weekly maintenance for your pool. This product uses Naturally based enzymes to biodegrade non living organics in pools. They actually break them down to their original building blocks such as carbon dioxide and water which is reabsorbed back into the pool.
