    Bioguard Optimizer Plus

    We added this product to our pool this year after opening before I found this site. We had used it last year and it did give the water a "softer" feel. Is this product o.k. to use or will it cause other problems?

    Is there a cheaper product that will give the same benefits? I think I added 20#'s for about 50 bucks.

    yup...regular old Borax and muratic acid or you can use Boric Acid. I have ordered boric acid from the chemistrystore.com...with good results. www.poolcalculator can tell you how much product you will need.
