How to Clean a Swimming Pool

Product FAQs


Q:I just purchased a new pool. What chemicals do I need to keep it clean?

A:Congratulations on your pool purchase. To keep your pool nice and clean you will need a variety of chemicals. Feel free to browse through our Pool Chemical Guide. It provides quite a bit of information to help get you started.


Q:Can I pay for expedited shipping on my pool chemicals?

A:It is the policy of our shipping carrier, UPS, to not permit expedited shipping of possible hazardous or dangerous chemicals via air transit. This policy includes all pool chemicals making the only available delivery method for such items UPS Ground.


Q:What is Zeobest? Is it safe?

A:Zeobest is a great alternative to regular filter sand. It provides DE like filtration (filters down to 3 microns), it's lighter than sand so you half the amount compared to sand. It can also decrease the frequency of backwashing. Without getting scientifically complex Zeobest comes from zeolites. Zeolites are the deposits of volcanic ash from thousands of years ago. It is NSF approved which means that it meets national health and safety requirements. It's also safe to use in all sand filters.


Q:So if I have a sand filter that takes 175# of sand what of your product do I need?

A:If you have a 175 Lb. sand filter then we would suggest 87.5 lbs. of Zeobest (175 / 2) Since the Zeobest is only sold in 25 lb. increments you would need to purchase 100 lbs. You may view the 25 Lb Zeobest here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/01300006001557.htm and the 50 Lb. Zeobest here http://www.inyopools.com/Products/01301202001558.htm

   (5 out of 5 Stars) better than sand...

Reviewed By: from Port St Lucie, FL ()

Pros: Much better clarity.

Cons: A bit expensive compared to sand.

I could see right away I needed to replace the sand. Probably been there since the installation back in the '80's. The Zeobest was different in texture and I could see right away why it was better before I even put it in the filter (Triton II). Turned the filter on, backwashed, ran the filter and within hours I could see the pool was getting cleaner and the water had a lot better clarity.
