    Bioguard Pool Complete (what is this?)

    Before switching to the (totally awesome) TFP method, I bought some of the "new, exciting" chemical offerings from the pool store. One is the
    Bioguard Pool Complete 3-in-1. Any clue about what this is, or what it (ACTUALLY) does?

    Claims:

    • Keeps water AMAZINGLY clear
    • Prevents build-up around the pool waterline
    • Continuously removes phosphate to the filter

    There is no ingredient list on the bottle, just a cautionary disclaimer that states that it contains Aluminum Sulfates and Surfactants.

    What should I do with this stuff.
    22,400 gal; in-ground gunite rectangle, vinyl liner; 3.5'-8' depth; Chlorine; auto cover; Hayward Pump and Sand Filter; Hayward Electric Heatpro; diving board; 3 sidewall fountains; open mid May thru mid October; built 2011; Taylor K-2006C FAS-DPD Test Kit

    Return it or throw it away but don't add it to your pool. It's nothing more than a cheap floc (aluminum sulfate) and some surfactants to help disperse surface debris. Floccs are generally not needed in a clean pool with a functioning filter.

    Once again, standard pool chemical manufacturer' nonsense - this is nothing more than cheap ingredients that are heavily marketed and packaged with fancy wording to make the consumer believe it does something useful.

    You won't need it if you follow the guidelines on this website. Your water will be clear and sparkling without all of the pool store chemicals.

    As I suspected

    Thanks for the input!
