    Pool enzyme products for opening, closing and filter cartridge maintenance

    There are several pool enzyme products that are designed to be used when opening and closing a pool and as a maintenance product for filter longevity. Are there any obvious pros or cons to using them, especially with the BBB or TFPC methods?

    There might be some that are useful for special cases in cleaning up a filter or if you have a lot of oil in the pool, but generally they are not needed for anything.

    While quite useful if you have the problem they were designed to help (lots of oil in/on the water) there is no point in using enzyme products if you don't have that issue.
