BioGuard SoftSwim B


BioGuard SoftSwim B is a non-chlorine sanitizer that uses biguanide to kill and control harmful bacteria while still being gentle on eyes, hair, and skin. It is Step 2 in the SoftSwim System. The BioGuard SoftSwim Program is ideal for pools containing less than 25,000 gallons of water, in-ground or above-ground pools, pools with excellent circulation and a pump that operates at least 12 hours per day, pools with a bottom drain, and any surface type, but especially great for all vinyl-lined pools.
