My pool company talked me into a filter chemical called Zeobrite. They claim far better filtering performance vs. pool sand. Of course the Zeobrite costs $38 for an 80 lb bag (I have a 200# filter).
The more and more I learn from long time pool owners is that many pool companies sell chemical "gimmics" just to maintain future buisiness, and that in many cases said gimmicks don't really function vs. the elevated costs to maintain. I am wondering if I got taken for a "new pool chump" when I chose to purchase the Zeobrite, and my Pool Frog mineral system..... Your thoughts?
