FAQ

Q: What is Rain Forest Blue, and how does it work?
A: Rain Forest Blue is a spa and hot tub bactericide and algaecide used instead of chlorine and bromine.

Q: How do I start using Rain Forest Blue?
A: To start, simply discontinue use of your previous treatments, and start using Rain Forest Blue. Just pour in the correct amount. There is no special preparation or treatment except to run your pump and filter full time for the first couple of days and clean the filter each day. After that, run your pump and filter as you normally would.

Q: How does Rain Forest Blue reduce calcium and soften water?
A: Rain Forest Blue maintains lower calcium levels reducing or eliminating hard water damage leaving your water nice and soft with no odor. Rain Forest Blue binds with calcium (and other dissolved solids and minerals) in water forming a larger calcium particle that is caught by your filter. These particles are then flushed out during normal cleaning. Your water becomes conditioned and soft.

Q: Do I need to use other chemicals?
A: Rain Forest Blue is a primary bactericide and algaecide and is used instead of chlorine and bromine. Except for an occasional shock, it is the only bactericide and algaecide you should need. You shouldn’t need other chemicals as a normal maintenance item unless you have source water or other problems. You may use other products with Rain Forest Blue such as shocks or pH adjusters (maintain your pool or hot tub between 7.2-7.8 pH), but the use of other bactericides, algaecides, stabilizers, metal adjusters, flocculants, or clarifiers are not needed or recommended. Unless you have source water problems, the only thing you should ever need to use in your pool or hot tub is Rain Forest Blue, along with an occasional shock.

Q: Can I convert from Baquacil or Soft Swim?
A: Yes, however you will need to run your pump and filter 24 hours a day and clean your filter twice a day for up to 4 days (usually 1-2) to completely remove the residuals left by these products. Your water will clear as Rain Forest Blue begins to take control of the water.

Q: What types of pools or hot tubs can be used with Rain Forest Blue?
A: Rain Forest Blue may be used with cement, plaster, plastic, vinyl, acrylic, or fiberglass pools, hot tubs and spas, above ground or in ground.

Q: Why Eco One products?
A: Eco One can act as a replacement for, or greatly reduce your need for the vast majority of your spa-care chemical regimen, non-toxically.

Q: Why Enzymes?
A: Enzymes increase the interaction between elements. They are added to detergents to help break down blood, fat, perspiration, and grass stains. Lipase and Cellulase enzymes soften the fatty exterior walls of microscopic cells, causing them to rupture more easily. Amylase and Protease enzymes help break down starches and proteins. Oxidase and Hydrolase enzymes increase oxidation and promote the rapid degradation of many substances. Enzymes originally were extracted from both plants and animals, but can now be grown naturally in common soil. Our enzymes are of food grade type carried by a coconut extract base, contributing to the overall effectiveness of the solution. As the solution breaks down during use, the coconut is released and gradually coats the filter cartridge, which improves filtration and makes cleaning the filter much easier. Coconut oil has the added benefit of being an excellent skin softener! The result is much healthier water, fresh, clean and clear without fear of exposure to harsh chemicals or their negative side effects.

Q: How do Eco One products work?
