Meet Our Favorite Product: BioGuard Optimizer

How to Have a Safe Pool Party During a Pandemic

Adding BioGuard Optimizer® to your pool care routine provides softer-feeling water that also stays much clearer! One of our favorite products is BioGuard Optimizer. Why?

We find that pools using Optimizer are much more trouble-free and have less cloudy, green water, and chlorine demand issues. You’ll also find your water feels better on your skin and eyes and even looks clearer.

It’s simple to add it to your pool when you open it and after you’ve cleaned it. Then, Optimizer is always in your pool, and you don’t have to replenish it. Get yours now, and don’t wait until mid-summer!
