What is Pool Gel Technology?
Flocculent “Gel” Technology is a slow dissolving filtration aid that was originally developed for the deep level mining industry in South Africa in the 1990’s. The active ingredient in filter gel works by trapping microscopic particles that would ordinarily pass through the filter medium (eg dirt, organic matter & algae spores). In essence, the regular use of Pool Gel has a "polishing" effect on the water.
How does it work?
Pool Gel contains a proprietary blend of polymers that dissolve over multiple filtration cycles to ensure that microscopic particles are removed and perfect water clarity is restored. More importantly, by removing even the finest suspended particles pool gel is able to boost
the effectiveness of all other chemical activity in the pool. Once the gel has performed its function, it is simply backwashed to waste in the normal manner.
Is Pool Gel compatible with all types of filters?
Pool Gel can be used with traditional filters and filter media such as silica sand, zeolites, glass, etc. Pool Gel has been tested in cartridge filters and found to be suitable, provided cartridges are cleaned when a pressure build-up is observed or the filter becomes noticeably soiled. Pool Gel must not be used in diatomaceous earth filters.
How often should Pool Gel be used?
Usage interval varies; Pool Gels should ideally be used no more than once every backwash cycle.
Is the use of Pool Gels limited by the size of the pool?
No, Pool Gel can be used in pools ranging in size from small domestic pools to large commercial pools.
Is Pool Gel safe to use?
Pool Gel is formulated with chemicals commonly used in commercial water treatment plants and is completely non-toxic . As with all chemicals care should be taken and usage instructions followed. Slippery surfaces will be encountered if Pool Gel residue spills and becomes wet on pool surround surfaces.
How does the promotion and sale of Pool Gels benefit my business?
As a small / medium sized business, what will it take to have Pool Gel in my own brand?
- For the retailer:
Pool Gel doesn’t compete directly with other clarifiers, and therefore opens up a new product category with relatively high margin potential.
- For the valet pool service operator:
By reducing average chemical consumption over time, Pool Gel helps to lower the monthly input costs for pool professionals, putting cash directly back in your pocket while promoting enhanced water clarity at the same time.
