Jack’s MagicJack’s 348-1656

The Filter Fiber Stuff is a biodegradable, high performing and safe alternative to DE. It usually requires about three filter runs to fully condition pool water because The Filter Fiber Stuff filters down to 2 microns while DE filters down to 4 to 5 microns, the company says. Just 36 ounces will charge a 60 square foot DE filter, and once water is conditioned to 2 microns, filter runs will be greatly extended — users report going months between backwashes, the company says. The Filter Fiber Stuff also works as a top coat in cartridge and sand filters. 635-0296

Whitefly infestations have recently become a growing concern in South Florida and other markets, as their excrement degrades the appearance of pool areas, interferes with filter operation and decreases sanitizer effectiveness. APi says it has a simple solution for cloudy, green water due to whitefly infestation: After thoroughly cleaning the filter and shocking the pool, apply a bottle of REVIVE! and after 48 hours, thoroughly clean the filter and skimmer basket. Some vacuuming may be necessary. To maintain clear water, apply 8 oz. of REVIVE! and clean the filter every two weeks.
