Has anyone heard of this product? a new company is marketing it at the AC pool show, and it certainly sounds like snake oil...but some very very reliable subcontractors of mine in the industry have seen this unit and say it really, really works.
http://www.krystalklor.com/index.html is the old name.
it now is being sold as http://www.thepoolprodigy.com/
The literally want to give me a unit to try for free...and then give it back if I don't like it after 60 days. They agree, it sounds too good to be true.
This is how they describe it:
put in 2 oz of some making Rk12 (and epa approved sanitizer) and add a few gallons of muriatic acid into their tank. It creates sometime of gas/ion caused by the electricity running through the titanium rods in the tank. this gas is then injected into the pool return line.
They have 600 installed in AZ...pH doesn't shift at all and alkalinity stays constant. The sanitizer it creates is measured by a standard drop test kit and stays stable around 2-3 ppm chlorine. So, it somehow is generating something that resembled chlorine.
They claim..no salt..no chlorine...no pH adjustment...no alkalinity adjustment. Truly makes a pool hassle free.
Has anyone ever heard or seen it? I can't find much info on it...but again, it is coming from a very reputable supplier of mine.
