Swim Things offers many chlorine alternatives for different reasons. You may elect to use something different because you have a chlorine allergy. You may choose an alternative because you don’t like the feeling on your skin or the strong smell.

For pools, we offer a product called Baquacil. Baquacil carries a full line of products that are chlorine and bromine free. Baquacil uses a sanitizer that maintains its level far longer than chlorine. Baquacil also uses a shock treatment called Oxidizer that is used periodically to “shock” the water. The third step of the Baquacil system is called CDX. This is the key for Baquacil users. CDX helps to preserve the oxidizer level in your pool, ensuring problems like water mold do not occur.

For spas, two options are available as alternatives. Swim Things carries both Baquaspa, and SilkBalance. Baquaspa is the spa counterpart to the Baquacil system. SilkBalance is a chemical that gets rid of pesky water testing and itchy, dry skin that spa users get from continual use of their spa. SilkBalance balances your spa’s pH and alkalinity, as well as softens the water, removes biofilms (bacteria), removes metals, and helps to clarify your spa water. It really is an all-in-one system that is very easy to use.

If you want to learn more about SilkBalance, you can call us at 1-888-272-7946, or go to for testimonials from hundreds of satisfied customers. Whether you have a pool or spa, we have what you need to enjoy your water chlorine-free.
