    Any opinions about this product?

    http://crystalclearchems.com/c/

    Heard about this on the radio, good sales pitch, guy claims it is like sun block for your pool? Will lower the cost of pool maintenance and keep your pool water "Crsystal Clear".

    Can I use CC on new plaster? CC should only be used in pools with cured plaster. Curing can typically take up to 6 months for new or resurfaced pools. Please consult your pool professional regarding the cure time.
    Will CC make my pool cloudy? In some pools occasional cloudiness may occur when applying CC. If this happens, allow 24-48 hours for water to clear.
    Will CC stain my pool? Staining can occasionally occur. If this happens, consult your pool professional for products used to treat pool stains."


    I'll sell you bleach a lot cheaper! Sorry, my bleach has no zinc in it and is not known to "stain" pool surfaces. You gotta pay extra for that!

    I wouldn't use it. That's the purpose of CYA stabilizer. IMO.

    Re: Any opinions about this product?

    Cupric Sulphate is a copper salt. Copper is what turns hair green and can cause staining so it isn't TFP recommended.

    The owner states that he constantly fought clarity issues, scrubbed his pool daily, and used tons of "shock". I rarely have clarity issues, rarely scrub my pool, and use no shock.

    How do I do it?
    I'm glad you ask!

    A revolutionary new product called SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE!

    If anyone wants to buy our ultra-concentrated 12.5% I will be very happy to sell it at $39.95 a gallon! Or you can get it in stores for $2-$4 a gallon if you prefer.

    Huh, and I just had that epiphany on why BBB will never be huge. When asked how much and how often, our answer is, "I don't know, post a full set of test results from a test you probably don't have yet and we can teach you how to keep your pool clear forever." When this Crystal Clear guy is asked the same question, he says "Add 2 liters a month for a sparkling clean pool." Sure, he is pretty much lying, but doesn't that sound so much easier.

    Um, anyway, enough with that seriousness. I have some labels to peel off bleach bottles and put on the "Revolutionary product created by elite chemists to Clean, Clarify, and Clear your pool like never before!" labels. It's the CCC system! One better than that BBB you may have heard of
