Chlorine is routinely used in swimming pools as a disinfectant. Unfortunately, chlorine has a tendency to react with ammonia. This results in the production of strong smelling compounds called chloramines. These compounds, which are often confused with chlorine, irritate the eyes and mucous membranes and cause displeasure. WaterKlean Swimming Pool Filter Media eliminates many unpleasant odors found in swimming pools and prevent the formation of chloramines. As added benefits, WaterKlean will also remove heavy metals that may be present in the pool, lower chlorine consumption, soften water, reduce dirt, elevate low pH and reduce backwashing. This will result in a beautiful, clearer looking sparkling pool that is odor free and non irritating to the eyes and mucous membrane. WaterKlean is sure to increase your swimming pleasure at a lower cost. WaterKlean can be installed in swimming pool filters by simply replacing the sand and can be regenerated for reuse.
