  • Blackspot, Mustard & Green Algae Killer
  • Eliminate Algae from Walls, Grouting & Steps
  • Reduce Chlorine Consumption
  • Handy Monthly Slow Release Tablet
  • Ideal for Salt or Chlorine Pools
  • Long Life Algicide for Summer & Winter
  • Makes Pool Water Sparkling Clear

POOL BLOCKS eliminate all forms of green, mustard and Blackspot algae in all fibreglass, vinyl, tiled, painted and pebble swimming pools. Once all algae is eliminated from the pool, less chlorine is needed to maintain sanitiser levels as the chlorine is free to perform it's principal task of killing bacteria. Salt chlorinator and filter running times are reduced saving electricity as the water stays sparkling clear as all algae is eliminated even if the chlorine level falls.

In an average 50,000 litre pool, add two (2) POOL BLOCKS to the skimmer basket followed by just one (1) per calendar month to provide long term protection. This unique 'once a month' application provides a constant low level of algicide all year round and an ideal 'first step' in your pool care. In larger pools around 75,000 litres simply add three (3) POOL BLOCKS initially followed by one (1) POOL BLOCK every three weeks for excellent results.

The key to POOL BLOCKS is that the pool is protected from algae all year round as a first line of defence as algae problems occur readily in untreated pools. Chlorine is a short term treatment to kill bacteria and lost within hours, leaving pools exposed to algae growth. Research shows that a low level of free chlorine is more effective in combination with an algicide, than chorine alone. For best results, keep the pH 7.2 and 7.6, which is a simple task in most pools where surfaces are pH neutral.

POOL BLOCKS 1.5 Kg contains 5 x 300g tablets last around five months in an average pool. POOL BLOCKS 0.6 Kg contains 2 x 300g tablets.

Waterblocs

Waterblocs

A Natural Biological Treatment for Ponds, Lakes, Dams and Aquariums.

Waterblocs are a specially formulated porous mineral substrate containing multiple nutrients to promote the rapid growth of beneficial bacteria when immersed in aquatic water systems.

Colonies of naturally occurring beneficial bacteria produce enzymes that consume organic waste, ammonia and unwanted nutrients that cause cloudy water that can deplete oxygen levels essential for aquatic life in a well balanced ecosystem. They will reduce the frequency of water changes in fish farms and aquariums. Ponds and lakes are dosed at the start of each season.

Biodegradable porous mineral substrate with ZEOLITE* Helps prevent oxygen depletion and precipitate organic matter Contains multiple organic and mineral nutrients for bacterial colonies Promotes rapid growth of naturally occurring beneficial bacteria Stimulates anaerobic bacteria growth for sludge reduction Promotes aerobic bacteria to consume excessive nutrients Buffers pH and adsorbs ammonia and dissolved heavy metals Suitable in salt or fresh water for all fish, plants and organisms Companion Sponge & Flotation Netting System Water bodies clogged with decaying organic matter and sludge become oxygen depleted creating a toxic bottom layer of stagnant water unsuitable for fish and aquatic organisms. Waterblocs TM contain *ZEOLITE that has a unique atomic microcellular structure to increase internal substrate surface area and chemically adsorb ammonia and natural trace elements providing additional nutrients for colonies of beneficial bacteria that restore water balance. Waterblocs do not support combustion and have a long storage life. Depending on where Waterblocs are suspended within a water column they will encourage the growth of a broad spectrum of aerobic bacteria in upper surface layers and in the absence of oxygen, anaerobic bacteria in fish toxic lower regions. Enzymes produced reduce sludge without undesirable by-products including smelly hydrogen sulphide and methane gases.For International International Customers please contact us on email.

Oxyclear Oxygen Shock

Oxyclear Oxygen Shock

OXYCLEAR Shock Treatment is a potent chlorine free oxygen based shock treatment for all swimming pools and spas. Use OXYCLEAR to restore peak water quality by breaking down chloramines and other sanitiser by-products as well as burning away organic contamination. OXYCLEAR is the simplest and most effective way to shock treat pools and spas. OXYCLEAR is the perfect companion for ionisers, UV, ozone and traditional chlorine and bromine systems.

  • Oxygen Shock Treatment - Chlorine Free
  • Oxidises Wastes and Sanitiser By-Products
  • Restores Water Sparkle
  • Recycles Bromine in Spas
  • Makes Chlorine Chemically in Salt Water Pools
  • Non Bleaching & Odourless

Large doses of expensive chlorine were required in the past to 'burn out' sanitiser by products such as chloramine and bromamine, however such harsh chlorine treatments makes pool water unusable for days. OXYCLEAR was first developed for commercial pools as this fast and effective treatment uses a mild oxygen compound (monopersulphate) to oxidise residues and the water can be used immediately as there is no taste or smell to the treatment. It quickly breaks down organic contaminants such as chloramine, bromamine, trihalomethane (a carcinogen) as well as organic oils, sunscreens and other biological contaminants.

This makes OXYCLEAR ideal in the swimming months where the pool or spa is used daily. Several oxygen based shock treatments contain inert fillers such as sodium bicarbonate or are based on alkaline compounds such as sodium carbonate (soda ash) which dramatically lifts the pH of the water. OXYCLEAR is 100% active ingredient and does not interfere with the pH. For swimming pools add 500g per 50,000 litres each month or in spas, add 50g per 1,000 litres after each use. The product is packaged in a large 1.5 Kg for economy and provides many months treatment in both pools and spas. The product regenerates free chlorine in salt pools, however OXYCLEAR is not an approved sanitiser so always maintain recommended sanitiser levels when swimming.


Pool & Spa Flocculant

Pool & Spa Flocculant

POOL & SPA FLOCCULANT POTABLE is an Effective Drinking Water Approved Coagulant for cleaning dirty, cloudy or green pool or tank water. It can be used to Floc or drop all debris to the pool floor for vacuuming.

When used at half strength acts as a long term water clarifier and a highly effective sand filter aid also suitable for cartridge and DE filters. POOL & SPA FLOCCULANT POTABLE is a versatile coagulant that binds fine particles together for removal in all pools, spas and drinking water tanks.

  • Potable Grade
  • Not pH dependant
  • Flocculant or Clarrifier

Fine particles of dust and debris in the water are coagulated into much larger 'clumps' which are then trapped in the filtration system, which is especially the case in sand filters where fine particles can otherwise pass through. The product is Drinking Water (potable) Approved and can be used as per directions to clear tanks and dams.

Simply add diluted in a bucket or directly, either through the skimmer box with the filter running, adding superior clarity to the water. The results are especially visible at night with the pool light operating as the water looks like a 'sheet of glass'.

The product is not broken down by chlorine, UV or sunlight and as such, each treatment lasts up to six months. Better still, there is no 'drop out effect' of material on the floor of the pool so no vacuuming is required after treatment, just regular backwashing.


YooVee UV Steriliser

YooVee UV Steriliser

YooVee Ultraviolet CRS1E 180 L/min is a commercial ultraviolet (UV) water disinfection, mixing and aeration system. It is easy to install, operate and maintain. UV water treatment is a natural and efficient way to eliminate all harmful water borne Pathogenic (disease causing) Micro-organisms including all bacteria, viruses & protozoa.

YooVee is a Chemical Reduction System (CRS) that will reduce health risks associated with residues or chemical by-products from other chemical water treatment methods such as Chloramines. Aeration assists with oxygenation and pH control.

We use the same natural germicidal UV light as that produced by the sun. Untreated water is directed into the YooVee CRS1E chamber where the UV light penetrates and rearranges all the micro-organism's DNA preventing them from reproducing. If the cell cannot reproduce it is considered to be dead.
