You may think that cleaning and maintaining your pool water one or more times a week is leaving you with clean pool water. As it turns out, your pool water may not be as clean as you think because of a little something known as “biofilm”.
What Is Biofilm?
Biofilm is a group of microorganisms like bacteria that stick to one another and live on the surface of the water. In pools which have not been properly maintained, biofilm may be blatantly obvious because of the thin, slimy film it produces which sits on top of the pool water.
Biofilm still lives and exists in well maintained pools, however, which can still cause a number of problems for pool owners.
How Biofilm Damages Pools
Biofilm is dangerous as it can harbor harmful bacteria, including:
- Mycobacterium Fortuitum
- Pseudomonas Aeruginosa
- Legionella (Legionnaire's Disease)
Biofilm frequently grows in the filtration and plumbing of pools as it thrives in warmer, darker areas. This slimy film will significantly decrease the effectiveness of your pool sanitizer, and it can cause a visible unpleasant ring around your pool's waterline. It can also discolor your filter.
Why Choose AquaFinesse
For small buildups, biofilm can be removed from the sides of a pool with a disinfecting wipe. Biofilm growth in your plumbing and your filtration system, however, is much more difficult to remove which is why pool owners choose the product AquaFinesse for clean pool water
- Less Maintenance
AquaFinesse gives pool owners the option of controlling the biofilm in their pool once a week and at one minute at a time. It's all-natural patented environmentally safe formula results in clean pool water that it's safer and softer for everyone. It also means that pool owners can spend less time maintaining their pool and more time enjoying it.
- Protect Your Equipment
AquaFinesse has also been proven to prevent scale buildup. The product effectively cleans your pumps and filtration system, meaning that your expensive pool equipment will be more energy efficient and last longer.
- Reduce the Smell Of Chlorine
Using this product means reducing the need to use other harsh chemicals in the pool. Because AquaFinesse is tackling a large portion of the bacteria in your pool, your other harsh smelly chemicals are not working as hard and producing that harsh chlorine smell.
Once biofilm has been removed from your pool, it is important to keep it out. Environmentally-friendly AquaFinesse will not only keep biofilm away, but it will break down existing biofilm in your pool, pumps and filtration system so that you can enjoy the clearest and most clean pool water possible.
