Will Enzymes Really Help Me Use Fewer Chemicals In My Pool or Hot Tub?
The short answer is: YES!
The real purpose of pool sanitizers like chlorine and bromine is to kill the harmful bacteria in our pool water. Its second job is to break down any organics such as sunscreen and tanning oil, urine, feces, sweat, dead skin cells, dirt, pollen and detergent left behind in the swimming pool. Fighting these organics can deplete the sanitizer level quickly so once there is bacteria again, more sanitizer is required.
When enzymes are added to pools and spas on a regular basis, their main task is to eat up the organic material in the water (and along the water line). It happens immediately upon contact which improves the overall health of your pool water. Enzymes allow sanitizers to work more efficiently so you can use fewer chemicals and still have healthy, sparkling pool water.
