While salt-water pools are a great way to pass the time in those hot summer months, the salt can also be damaging to your pool and pool accessories. Luckily, APi created a product called “Pepper” in 2013 that helps combat the negative effects of salt water.
Pepper was created exclusively to work with salt-water pools. It oxidizes debris and assists in the filtering process, which leaves your water looking clean and ready to jump into. In addition to this, it also boosts your sanitizer, keeps phosphate levels low, keeps pH levels from fluctuating, and prevents buildup.
You simply need to use the product twice a month, and you’re free to swim immediately after. And after your first use, you can usually operate your salt water generator at a lower setting. Less pool maintenance in one little step! All you need to do is sprinkle Pepper into your salt-water pool. Each bottle is 2 pounds, and you should use 1 pound for every 10,000 gallons. One bottle can do 20,000 gallons!
