Good filtration is the key to having clean water in all pools and spas. Knowing that cartridge filters filter 100 times better than sand, they are almost always the choice for building hot tubs and spas. Swimming pools are usually sold with sand filters but we recommend changing your swimming pool filter to cartridge if you want to stop unnecessary backwashing, save over 10,000 gallons of heated and treated water each year and, to obtain a much cleaner water in general.
For those of you with an existing spa, you have surely endured the long process of cleaning your filters. Switching to AquaFinesse™ will change the way you see filter cleaning. First of all, the solution will naturally help the break down of nasty build up of junk on filters and will actually make them function much better. Since AquaFinesse™ eliminates the need for harsh and damaging chemicals, your filters will actually last much longer.
Weekly rinsing followed by monthly use of our AquaFinesse™ Filter Cleaning Tablets is recommended to insure, promote and maximize 100% filtration while reducing the possible need for any other chemicals. So easy to use, our tablets will insure proper calcium and oil removal: simply drop 2 tablets in a 20 liter pail and let your filters soak for 1 hour! That’s it… no measuring, no soaking for 24 hours. One hour and that’s it!
Think about it… having clean water means using clean filters! If your vacuum bag is full, it just doesn’t work!
(One more tin bit of good news: we recommend the use of regular pleated filters over disposable ones. This allows you to clean and rinse them weekly instead of simply throwing them out. Not to mention that this will save you over $300.00 per year! Good job AquaFinesse™)
How it works
Until now, all maintenance products were made/invented to fix problems caused by contamination of the water by the bathers: bacteria, body oils, germs, calcium caused issues and it was necessary to use many different products to try to clean them up. Good examples are: using defoamer to remove foam caused by oils, Stain and Scale control to try to limit the amount of calcium build up, Salt Systems to try to keep the water from causing dry and itchy skin, Ph up and down, Alkalinity buffers and acids to balance the levels, etc. All along, because the technology wasn’t available, we tried to fix problems instead of removing them.
Most bacteria, introduced in the water phase by humans, stay in suspension and are killed from using high levels (3 to 5 ppm) of Bromine, Chlorine, Copper or many other biocides. But, the problem is that many others will attach themselves to surfaces and become Biofilm: a living and breathing microorganism that cannot be broken down with the low levels of biocide we use in hot tubs and swimming pool water. To do so, those levels would need to be significantly higher and impossible to sustain without harmful effects to humans. This would also cause serious damage your pool and spa equipment and have huge side effects to the environment.
Knowing that this is the major cause of all water problems, the AquaFinesse™ Team developed a formula that simply breaks down Biofilm and Calcium and removes them. By adding AquaFinesse™ weekly to your spa or swimming pool, the solution will immediately start to remove these formations inside the plumbing & on all surfaces while at the same time, remove new bacteria, calcium, body oils, organic contaminants and will simply coagulate them and flush it all in the filter(s).
Now that the cleaning is done, less sanitizer is required. This slows down the negative effects of having too much Chlorine or Bromine and keep your water sanitized. Rinsing your filter/s weekly will remove and flush everything out.
A very complex product with a very simple task: removing the causes of all water issues, leaving your water Clean, Clear and Pure instead of a very hard to manage chemical soup!

Chlorine is still by far the best and cheapest way to sanitize your water. Available in liquid, powder, crystals and puck form, it’s easy to manage and most quality products will dissolve almost completely leaving very little chloramines in the water phase. Since most users only require 1 or 2 tablets at a time, the levels are much lower with less side effects on your skin and equipment. As an added benefit, the AquaFinesse™ special formula eliminates having to shock weekly.
Knowing that most cities use chlorine to keep your drinking water safe, we are quite happy to promote and use it with the AquaFinesse™ system.
(Remember that Health Canada and the National Pool & Spa Institute recommend keeping a level of chlorine of 1.5 ppm in all swimming pools and spa waters)
Save Your Spa/Pool
95% of all service calls on hot tubs and swimming pools are directly related to water chemistry. Even the most religious consumers when it comes to having the water tested and balanced have had to replace components and spend money fixing something that could have been prevented.
Did you ever ask yourself what is in a bottle of Ph Reducer?
We see this and hear of this everyday: consumers keep adding ph reducer to their spa water without knowing that they are pouring Acid by the caps full every week, sometimes every day. They don’t realize that they are the ones destroying their hot tubs. Acid mixed with the high jet pressure will eat away your jets, destroy your head rests, make your spa cover waterlogged, eat away heaters and heat exchangers, pump seals and o’rings and drives the Alkalinity of the water way to low to the point that they can’t even breathe when in their hot tub.
For most consumers using AquaFinesse™ the use of balancing products is practically eliminated. Since we take care of the causes, we don’t need to worry about using acids in order to fight calcium problems. In time, jets, plumbing, heaters and practically all of the spa equipment will be cleaned and rid of calcium buildup and biofilm.
Protect your investment don’t destroy it! Start using AquaFinesse™ today and see the results for yourself.
