SEA-KLEAR is the clairifier of choice of spa care professionals. It is used worldwide in spas, swimming pools, fountains, water parks, ponds, aquariums and zoos.
CLARIFIES CLOUDY WATER
SEA-KLEAR coagulates the tiny particles and oily liquids that build up in your water so your filter can remove them. But unlike single purpose clairifiers, SEA-KLEAR does more than just make your water look clean.
REMOVES EXCESS METALS
Like millions of microscopic magnets, SEA-KLEAR gathers stain causing metal residues and deposits them in your filter where they stay until you flush them out.
ELIMINATES OIL AND SCUM LINES
SEA-KLEAR takes the water-diluting soaps and oils out of your water but will not deposit them on surfaces like ordinary clairifiers do. Your filter is also protected against clogging and short cycles
IMPROVES FILTER EFFICIENCY
Any filter will leave a certain amount of unwanted material in your water. SEA-KLEAR allows your filter to trap these impurities and hold them without clogging. The molecular structure of our biopolymer keeps it and the impurities it holds on the filter media, and not in the spaces that your water passes through. So your filter can actually run longer between cleanings.
- Clean your filter if applying initial dose.
- Squire desired dose (1 oz. treats 500gal.) across the waters surface (no premixing required). If your water is especially dirty you can double or triple the dose.
- Allow at least one hour of continuous filtration.
- Maintain your water's sparkling clarity with by using SEA-KLEAR once a week.
Our guarantee is simple: SEA-KLEAR works better than any other clairifier you've tried or your money back.
THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT IN SEA-KLEAR IS NATURAL POLYMER FROM CRAB SHELLS. NO THICKENERS ARE ADDED. SEA-KLEAR WILL NOT HARM PLANTS, ANIMALS OR FISH. IT IS SAFE FOR YOUR FAMILY AND OUR ENVIRONMENT. USE ONLY AS DIRECTED. EXTREMELY SLIPPERY IF SPILLED. VANSONS IS NOT RESPONSIBLE IF PRODUCT IS MISUSED.
Chitin (pronounced kite-in) came into being in the 1970's when the EPA ordered fishing companies to stop dumping the shells of crabs and lobsters back into the ocean. Researchers discovered that the chitin contained in the shells had properties that could be applicable in a variety of industrial uses. Similar to cellulose, chitin is a naturally occurring polymer. It is also the only naturally occurring polyelectrolyte.
For pool & spa use, chitin is produced in a patented formula by the Vanson company, marketed under the name Sea Klear. The properties of chitin enable it to attach itself to a variety of organic contaminants, minerals, metals and oils. The result is clearer, cleaner water with less staining and scaling. Vanson also notes a beneficial effect on the filtering medium, whether sand, DE or cartridge. The efficiency of your filtering improves with regular use as chitin's natural coagulants help the filter to trap more dirt and debris.
Sea Klear is added as a liquid directly to the water. It's touted as an all in one replacement for clarifiers, filter aids, stain & scale magnets, and enzymes. Sea Klear is compatible with all types of spa chemicals, and is a great addition to any sanitizing program (including ionizers).
