A product that stems from a chlorine allergy, a dream, and a bit of luck.
In 1996, the inventor of algarine had the chance to knock on the
door of a renowned laboratory and to spark the interest of a brilliant chemist,
Dr. F. Ablenas. A multidisciplinary team then managed to leverage the potential
of this unique product. In short, this is what led to the emergence of this
new category of pool water maintenance product.
Today, algarine is the second-generation product engineered by this
team as they keep on striving to improve their offer. algarine always
clearly illustrates the original company mission: to make available a differentiated
product that facilitates pool maintenance.
And the adventure continues!
algarine, the story of a second–generation product
Consultations with thousands of pool owners have allowed us to evaluate water
clarity and quality problems occuring during heat waves :
- algae formation
- pH level instability
- questionable water clarity
Pool owners share a common objective: Keep their water clear and clean at
all times, that is exempt of disinfectant odours, and use a minimum of chemical
Many owners therefore resort to trial – and often error. Costly products
that are often antagonistic if not plainly inefficient are used in an attempt
to solve the problem . . . with mitigated results.
Miracle products already on the market often just aggravate the problem.
“Can I ever hope to swim in water instead of a chemical soup?”
Our technical team was mandated to develop:
- A product to replace all these other chemical products which are often
antagonistic and toxic, and most of the times unnecessary.
- A product that ensures unparalleled water quality at all times, no matter
- A product that, when combined with reduced amounts of chlorine or bromine,
would enable all pool owners to obtain professional results.
- A product that would provide for savings in terms of time and money.
“Water so clear you’ll no longer be able to gauge its depth.”
After performing numerous laboratory tests, our chemists and biologists carefully
selected from a long list of ingredients the most remarkable in terms of efficiency
Thousands of stability and formulation tests have finally provided for creating
a product that optimizes the efficiency of the others and provides for saving
time and money.
Over the subsequent years, thousands of in-pool tests have allowed us to
confirm that those objectives were met.
algarine is a unique, mild, easy-to-use
and efficient product at all times.
