FAQ

What is the optimal pH for my pool or spa when using Orb-3 enzyme products? + -

The typical industry recommendation for pH range in pools & spas is 7.4 - 7.8. This is also a great range for the Orb-3 enzymes, so no special adjustment is required when using our enzymes.

I need to get rid of the algae in my pool. Can Orb-3 help me? + -
How do I figure out how many gallons of water my pool holds? + -
Can Orb-3 enzyme-based products be used with DE filters? + -

Yes. Orb-3 enzyme products work very well with DE filtration media. The enzymes keep organics such as oil & grease from accumulating on the DE allowing it to filter as efficiently as possible.

Can I stop using sanitizer (chlorine, bromine, etc) in my pool or hot tub if I use Orb-3? + -

No, we do not recommend this approach.

However, since a secondary function of most sanitizers is to "burn off" the organics, many customers report that they use less sanitizer when using Orb-3 products.

Orb-3 products do not kill pathogens and consequently you need to continue using a sanitizer in order to provide safe water that meets health department standards.

The primary benefit to using enzymes is that they will reduce organics (lotions, body oils, urine, etc) in the water which will improve the clarity of the water, allowing it to sparkle & providing better visibility to the bottom. Enzymes also reduce scum lines & bio-films.

Are there any animal products in Orb-3 Products? + -

The Orb-3 Pool & Spa product line contains no animal product whatsoever. All items are either food-grade or GRAS and are plant derived, mineral based or synthesized. They are non-toxic when used as directed, and do not contain phosphates, sulfates, or paraben; and are gluten free as well.

Description

Perfect for both in-ground and above-ground pools, Orb-3 Pool Enzymes are the secret to great looking pool water year-round. Orb-3 Pool Enzymes eliminate scum and water lines, keep filters cleaner longer, and support optimal water balance without polluting your pool with harmful chemicals. 

Learn from the pros who manage busy hotel and fitness center pools an spas. Orb-3 Pool Enzymes condition water to naturally purge itself of body oils, lotions, cosmetics, urine, and other organic materials, leaving pools crystal clear and odorless. These organics make pool water appear cloudy, supply nutrients for algae and mold, and they make sanitizers less effective.

Eliminate organics with Orb-3 and eliminate the problem!

Orb-3 Pool Enzymes are totally compatible with and reduce the need for any chemical treatments you might use. They help stabilize pH levels, avoid water upsets, slow the growth of slime and algae, and are effective on scum lines.

If you're looking for the secret to a sparkling pool, stop scrubbing and try Orb-3 Pool Enzymes today!

Amazing Clarity and pool water maintenance

I have used this product for three years now. I can't believe how well these products work keeping my pool and filter clean. The headaches of pool maintenance and days of costly chemicals are gone!

Guests are raving

While using Orb-3 enzyme products, we have experienced longer filter runs, sparkling water, and no **** lines. It also helps the control of chloramines and just an overall silky feeling in the water that our guests continue to rave about... My maintenance staff and our pool guests are very appreciative of what we have accomplished together in improved water quality and cleaner decks and floors.

I love the enzyme product!

I love the enzyme product!!! Would recommend it to anyone who has a pool! Before I started using it in our- warm pool (13,000gallons) and our main pool (51,000 gallons) our water looked dark/gloomy and you could not see the bottom that well. After a few weeks of the enzyme being put in our two pools, the water looked crystal clear!!! Our life guards and members all noticed it as well. I add it to both our pools once a week; it really has made a major difference in our water! It is well worth the cost!
