    Nature's Pool Filter


    i'm new to the world of pools but i'm trying to look into ways to use less chlorine (if possible).

    I came across this video and website that use plants to reduce the amount of chlorine needed to keep the pool clear. Is it too good to be true? Has anyone tried it? Thanks!

    It's too good to be true. Chlorine is your friend.

    Re: Nature's Pool Filter

    The FAQ on Nature's Pool Filter states you must use chlorine with this product. They recommend 1 tablet per 5000 gallons of water. One 8 ounce tablet raises FC by approximately 4ppm, so you are not using as little chlorine as you may think, especially since most pools run 10-15,000 gallons. In the video you posted, Nature's Pool Filter left a comment that the person who posted the video is using it wrong and in an unsafe manner. Her pool does not look as good as she thinks it does. It is still cloudy.
