I use chlorine and related chemicals in my pool and the pool is beautiful. My neighbor uses a product called Backuisil(sp). His pool looks very good as well. What is the difference between the two treatments?


Baquacil is a non-chlorine product for sanitization. The Baquacil system (baquicil is one brand of several) and others like it use a three chemical treatment process to replace chlorine. 1. Biguanide for regular sanitization. 2. Hydrogen Peroxide shock for oxidation. 3. An algaecide to prevent algae growth. This system takes the place of and is completely not compatible with chlorine. This is a good option for those with allergy or are hypersensitive to chlorine.
