⚠️ The clarification socks are recommended for sand filters. Do NOT use with cartridge, bag, or diatom filters.

What are the clarification socks?

Your water is perfectly balanced, the pH and the disinfection potential are good and yet microparticles are in suspension? After a shock treatment in green water, it has become whitish or cloudy? You can then use the iopool clarification socks to clarify your water. These are slowly dissolving flocculant pellets packaged in a 125g sock. The clarification sock will have a magnetic action that will agglomerate the microparticles that your filter lets through. These will then be retained by your filter or will settle at the bottom of the pool. It will then suffice to vacuum them with your robot or bottom vacuum cleaner.
