    Exclamation Pool Perfect

    Am I the only one to notice that it doesn't really do anything? I have gallons and gallons of it at work, but I notice no difference in using it vs. not using it. I've used regular Pool Perfect and Pool Perfect PhosFree.

    I thought it would help keep the pool tiles clean since I hate cleaning them. Gotta scrub them twice a week to keep the health department off my back. I've been using a scotchbrite sponge and Bio Dex 300 tile cleaner.

    Doesn't surprise me. We never recommend any of those magic potions.

    Re: Pool Perfect

    Pool Perfect is good to have/use if you have a fouled pool. Here's a quote from JasonLion:
    Re: Natural Chemistry Pool Perfect



    Pool Perfect is an enzyme product designed to break down oils more quickly than chlorine is able to break them down. It is kind of a specialty item, as you really only need it if you spill an entire bottle of cooking oil, or worse motor oil, in the pool or several people who swim in your pool really like to use lots and lots of suntan lotion.

    Pool Perfect is often sold in a single bottle combined with PhosFREE, which is designed to remove phosphates, although it is also sold separately. We do not recommend using PhosFREE. But Pool Prefect can be very handy if you have the exact problem it is designed to solve.

    Re: Pool Perfect

    You guys got any recommendations on how to keep pool tiles clean on public pools besides scrubbing them?

    Re: Pool Perfect

    Are you having to scrub more than a normal brushing would do? Are you cleaning off mold, mildew, algae, suntan oils, or makeup?

    Re: Pool Perfect

    If this is a heavily used commercial pool, then having people shower first will be the most effective. People bring in a lot of oily and grease-like compounds. Pool Perfect does work as a fairly good tile cleaner. I think that that's all I would use it for.

    Twice a week is how often I scrub the tiles. Dirt and probably suntan oil is what it looks like. Even during winter when nobody is using the pool. Dirt gets on the tiles and gotta be scrubbed off.

    A Mr Clean magic eraser might clean them a little easier. If the glaze on the tile is heavily scratched or worn off it may be making the tiles more difficult to clean.
