I was at my local WalMart the other day and was noticing the bulk-sized bags of Arm & Hammer baking soda available in the pool section. Looks like Arm & Hammer is starting to tap into the pool owner market!!
However, sitting next to the large bags of baking soda was another product by Arm & Hammer called "Clear Balance". They are some type of tablets that claim to be able to handle adjustment of both alkalinity and pH levels with a single product. I just looked the product up on the A&H website (www.armandhammer.com) and here is the product blurb they provided:
Spend less time on pool work and more time on pool play! ARM & HAMMERÂ® Clear Balanceâ„¢ Pool Maintenance Tablets maintain your poolâ€™s alkalinity and pH levels so your chlorine works most effectively. Convenient tablet form means no measuring and no mess â€“ and eliminates the need for other costly, corrective chemicals. ARM & HAMMERÂ® Clear Balanceâ„¢ Pool Maintenance Tablets are the easy way to keep your swimming pool water crystal clear and balanced all season long while resulting in pool water that is gentle to your skin and eyes.
Is anyone familiar with this product and does it have any merit for those of us using the BBB method?
