What is ActivNzyme?


Why do I need to use enzymes in my pool or spa?

Enzymes are special, naturally  occurring (although there do exist man-made and natural enzymes)  molecules that "eat" or "digest" organic waste that is not easily filterable or can be readily oxidized. Basically, enzymes are nature's way to break down many organic compounds.  You'll find enzymes in your own body!  They break down fats, sugars.  Insulin is a kind of enzyme.

Enzymes come in various "types" that  are suited for specific jobs.  The enzymes bind to the organic waste and  chemically break the waste down.  Think of enzymes as nature's scissors or shredders that cut up or break down waste into their base elementsThe final "waste of the waste" is  carbon dioxide (CO2) and water.

As you can imagine, turning organic waste in swimming pools or spas into CO2 and water is a great thing!  Those 2  components are then reabsorbed back into the pool or spa water.  Your  sanitizer (chlorine, bromine, biguanide, etc.) can concentrate on its  job - killing bacteria and oxidizers or shocks can do their job - oxidizing contaminants that cause chloramines; algaecides are not as stressed because algae is not being "fed" by these organics.

NatureCare ActivNzyme Natural Enzymes vs. Synthetic Enzymes -  Whether enzymes are natural or synthetic, they come from the world  around us.  Here's the difference between the two in a broad sense is:  synthetic or man-made enzymes are manufactured or cooked and blended.  They tend to be specific in their "feeding"- they will eat only specific  wastes such as fats and oils. Man-made enzymes tend to be much less  stable than natural enzymes.

Natural enzymes are "naturally"  formed through the process of fermentation.  ActivNzyme's proprietary fermentation produces a  "broad spectrum" enzyme that is dramatically more stable and able to  "eat" a significantly wider range of organic wastes.  Natural enzymes  such as those found in NaturCare ActivNzyme  and related products will break down & help remove all of the following kinds of organics  that are often found in swimming pools: human waste, waste fuel oil,  deodorants, soaps, bird droppings, sweat, shampoo, body oils, cosmetics,  hair spray and other hair treatments, body lotions, pipeline anti-freeze residue, air borne pollution, tree sap, organic fillers, and  more.  

The more organic, swimmer and environmental waste that can be  "consumed" and eliminated,  the less potential problems that you and  your pool will face.

Nature Based Chemistry = Great Results!


Naturally treat pool & spa water problems

NaturCare ActivNzyme consume the organic wastes that  contribute to scum-lines that eventually (quickly) become bio-films that  are a breeding ground for bacteria and algae.  Build ups of scum lines are not only visible at the water line, but in the skimmer, pool pipe  lines, and even into the filter itself; fouling filter grids, cartridges, and even the sand causing shortened filter runs.

Natural Enzymes are not "water  clarifiers" or "cleaners".  Clarifiers "clump" together fine particles (agglomerate) so that the  filter can more easily remove them. Enzymes are not cleaners or detergents - they don't "clean" anything, although they can "eat" or break down greases, oils, lotions & other organic wastes in your swimming pool or spa. NaturCare ActivNzyme doesn't contain copper. Pure batch NaturCare ActivNzyme is formulated for different  environments such as pool water or spa water (cool vs. warm), cold water  as in a winterized pool - use the proper enzyme for the correct  application.

NaturCare ActivNzyme can be used in ALL swimming  pools using ANY sanitizing system - chlorine, bromine, biguanide (such as BioGuard  Soft Swim®,  Baquacil®),  as well as with ionizers such as Nature2® or Pool Frog®  are a terrific idea because they keep the "beads" in the ionizing  canister cleaner by consuming the organic waste that can foul the canister. 

Treating Water Mold & Slime

Regular use of NaturCare ActivNzyme on a weekly basis will help prevent the organic component  of water molds and slime (imagine a pool without pink slime or white  water mold!).

When you couple NaturCare ActivNzyme with borate based and biofilm removing products, you have a system that can't be beat!  

Why?  As mentioned above, the enzymes break the waste down into CO2 (carbon  dioxide) and water. The borates react with and help prevent the CO2 from feeding the algae.  Carbon dioxide is one the of main food  sources and sustainers of all plant life - including all forms of  algae.  Plants cannot photosynthesize without CO2.  Help eliminate CO2 and say good-bye to algae!

That's a good, solid,  "natural" way to get rid of and then control White Water Mold and Pink Slime.  This is a PROVEN 3 step base system we have used several years with 100's of customers, and the process works exceedingly well!
