BioGuard Soft Swim Program

Soft, clear, chlorine-free water is easy to achieve. That’s the philosophy behind SoftSwim. It’s the reason pool owners everywhere are making the big switch to non-chlorine pool care.

BioGuard's SoftSwim Program is Ideal for:

  • Not more than 25,000 gallons
  • Excellent circulation, using a sand filter
  • Pump operates at least 12 hours per day
  • Pool has a bottom drain
  • In-ground or above-ground
  • Any surface type, but especially great for all vinyl-lined pools

You don’t have to be an exact match with these descriptions to be a good candidate for SoftSwim. It’s best to talk with your BioGuard® Dealer. They’ll direct you to the best program for you and your pool.

It’s as easy as A-B-C!

Step A: Prevent algae growth

Step B: Sanitize to kill bacteria

Step C: Oxidize and clarify for sparkling clear water

SoftSwim Program - Step A

Step 1

Using an effective algicide is an important first step in your pool care regimen for inhibiting and controlling the growth of algae.

  • Add it to your pool every two weeks to keep algae in check.
  • Withstands evaporation from direct sunlight
  • Works harder in high temperatures
  • Supports the effectiveness of other SoftSwim products when used on a regular basis.

SoftSwim Program - Step B

Step 2

This is a step you don’t want to miss when keeping your pool primed for good times in the sun.

  • Stops the spread of disease via pool water by effectively killing & controlling bacteria
  • Contains biguanide—the key ingredient that makes this program so different than chlorine-based sanitizers
  • Gentle on eyes, skin & hair
  • UV-protected

SoftSwim Program - Step C

Step 3

Use SoftSwim C on a monthly basis to maintain clarity. Our powerful clarifier and oxidizer helps you keep the sparkle in your water longer by removing contaminants that can cause cloudiness.

  • Formulated to last 30% longer in the water (a real money-saver),
  • Clears your pool water by eliminating body oils, perspiration and other undesirable contaminants that can affect clarity and sparkle
  • Built-in stabilizer ensures that SoftSwim C’s dual action chemicals won’t burn off easily in hot weather
