When disassembling a  filter to clean it, there may be a gray gelatinous material that is difficult to remove. This is usually the result of non-compatible chemicals (clarifiers, polymers and coagulants, etc.) being added to the water. Fiber Clear is merely filtering those chemicals out of the water. Clarifiers, polymers, or other types of sequestering agents should not be added to a Fiber Clear filter. Fiber Clear provides natural filtration down to 2 microns. If you inadvertently add them, you will need to disassemble the filter and clean it thoroughly according to the manufacturer’s instructions. You can then add a fresh amount of Fiber Clear.

    I will be switching to Fiber Clear this year. In years past I have used a product call “No Phos” which eliminates phosphates to control algae breakouts. Is this product okay to use with Fiber Clear? Thanks!

      We have no experience with the “No Phos” brand, nor does a web search bring up anything… However, if the phosphate remover is Natural Chemistry’s “Phos Free”, then yes, Fiber Clear will work a fine; Phos Free Plus, however, has an added clarifier. Be careful when any Pool Chemicals have a “Plus” after the name. In many cases, the “Plus” indicates added clarifiers. We do not recommend clarifiers when using Fiber Clear… we are getting the water down to two microns….naturally.
