Water is better with minerals

The ClearBlue pool ionizer hooks into your pool filtration system and releases microscopic mineral ions which control bacteria and algae. This allows you to reduce the chlorine, algaecide and other chemicals by up to 90%1. The ClearBlue Ionizer costs less than a salt chlorinator and ClearBlue mineral pools are less effort to maintain than traditional chlorine or salt water pools

Cut the chlorine in half

Mineral pools require about half as much chlorine as either salt water or chlorine pools according to the EPA, NSF, Health Canada and other governing bodies.

Forget about algaecide

ClearBlue minerals are very effective at controlling algae. You will rarely need to add algaecide, no matter how much sun you get.

Perfectly balanced

Chlorine and salt chlorinators affect the pH balance of the water. This means you constantly have to adjust the balance up or down using chemicals. ClearBlue mineral ions are completely neutral so pH stays in range longer.

Safe for your property

Salt is corrosive to some pool equipment and structures. Many manufacturers will void your warranty if you use salt. ClearBlue is completely harmless to your pool equipment, structure and landscaping.

Easy on your wallet

ClearBlue mineral pools cost less overall than salt water or traditional chlorine pools.

Minerals are compatible with salt

If you like your salt water pool but want to reduce the chlorine, minerals can help. Adding ClearBlue to your salt water pool allows you to turn down the chlorinator to the lowest setting which prolongs the life of your salt cell. Less chlorine generation means less pH balancing effort. Minerals also help the salt chlorinator keep up with algae on those sunny summer days.

How do I use it?

Mineral Cell

Mineral cell is hooked into your pool or spa plumbing and connected to a controller.

Digital Controller

Digital controller allows you to configure the mineral output for your pool or spa.

Mineral Test Kit

Mineral test kit lets you test for minerals like you would for chlorine

How does it work?

ClearBlue releases microscopic mineral ions into the water to control bacteria and algae.

Where does it go?

The ClearBlue system consists of a controller, a clear PVC tee and a set of mineral plates called an electrode. The PVC tee is plumbed into your plumbing on the line that runs heated, filtered water into your pool or spa. The electrode is threaded into the tee and is connected to the controller with an electrical cable.

Where do the minerals come from?

The controller charges the two plates of the electrode with a precise electrical current. As the electrical current jumps from one plate to the other through the water, microscopic mineral particles are released. The electricity gives these particles a positive charge or ‘ionizes’ them which converts them into mineral ions.

What do the minerals do?

Positively charged mineral ions are attracted to negatively charged bacteria and algae cells and kill them by changing their molecular structure. The dead cells combine into chunks that are collected by the filter.

1. Health Canada and EPA recommends 0.5ppm - 1ppm chlorine in mineral pools and 0.5ppm - 5ppm in mineral spas. pH should be maintained at 7.2 - 7.8. Alkalinity should be maintained at 80ppm - 120ppm. Calcium hardness should be maintained between 200ppm - 400ppm. Total dissolved solids (TDS) should be maintained between 500ppm - 2,000ppm.
