    Why would you want an enzyme treatment all winter long???

    to keep the pool water from turning green over the winter .. so i can open it up and not have to cleaner the fliter as much to get it clear again before continuing the opening process .. would save time and energy to get the same result.

    thanks I was wondering if that enzyme thing had any scientific basis before i make a decision to try or not .. i guess i'll just let the pool turn green

    Enzyme treatments are great when you have especially large amounts of suntan lotion, or other oils, in the pool. They are useless over the winter.
