How Ocion Blue is different from Enzyme Products

When it comes to pool and hot tub maintenance, there are many products on the market that claim to be the best. Enzyme products have gained popularity in recent years due to their natural properties.

For many pool and hot tub owners, using natural products is a priority, since many people deal with skin sensitivities, and prioritize healthier living overall. Unfortunately, the pool and spa industry is pretty chemical reliant.

No wonder enzyme products have made a big splash!

How are enzyme products different than Ocion Blue?

Enzyme products break down the non-living organic matter that's present in your water (think oils and body lotions) which makes it easier for your primary sanitizers, such as chlorine and bromine, to eliminate them altogether. 

Unfortunately, a lot of companies market them as a one-stop-shop to pool or spa cleaning, and this isn't the case. Not only that, the claim that you need less chlorine with the use of enzyme products is unsubstantiated; you still need to use 3-5ppm chlorine. 

If you're looking for a natural solution that IS almost a one-stop-shop to pool and spa maintenance, Ocion Blue is what you need. 

While enzyme products allow chlorine to be more effective, Ocion Blue simply kills the bacteria and algae (living organic matter) in your water. 

Using Ocion Blue means you can skip that enzyme step altogether. 

In addition, since Ocion Blue kills the bacteria and algae, the chlorine you'll need is 90% less, and its job is now to break down those body oils and lotions, helping to keep your water crystal clear. 

**Please note that Ocion Blue does not replace chlorine. Neither do enzyme products. You still need to use chlorine or bromine as your primary sanitizer, as per Health Canada requirements. 

Can I use enzyme products and Ocion Blue together?

You can, but Ocion Blue will remove the enzyme products from your water, making them ineffective and is simply a waste of money. 

How do I switch from enzyme products to Ocion Blue?

There's nothing you need to do in order to make the switch. If there are any enzyme products in your water, Ocion Blue will help remove them. 

In summary

If you're looking for a simpler solution to maintaining healthy water in your pool or hot tub, consider using Ocion Blue. It provides the natural properties that make those enzyme products popular, but allows you to cut all the extra chlorine.
