All the pleasures of chlorine-free swimming. With Bacquaci you'll enjoy your pool without the harsh side-effects related to chlorine use, such as:

  • Red eyes, irritated skin, dry hair, and faded swimsuits
  • Discolored vinyl liners and pool finishes

More effective. More stable. More enjoyment.  

Bacquaci's active ingredient, biguanide, is extremely stable. So, unlike halogen sanitizers such as chlorine and bromine, Bacquaci is not affected by:

  • Sunlight
  • Temperature
  • pH fluctuations  

More enjoyment because with Bacquaci you have more dependable, consistent bacteria control, giving you more time to spend in your pool, because you usually only need to treat your pool every 7-14 days.
