Fluidra’s ‘Nature 2’ destroys bacteria and controls algae

Nature2, from Fluidra USA, of Carlsbad, Calif., is a line of simple and effective mineral sanitizers that works in conjunction with a pool or spa’s filtration system to destroy bacteria and control algae in a natural way.

Nature2 pool mineral cartridges install inside Nature2 vessels or a pool’s existing cartridge filter; Nature2 spa sticks drop in a spa’s filter basket.

Trace amounts of silver and copper are then automatically dispensed for continuous sanitizing and healthier pH levels.

The minerals fight bacteria and control algae for up to six months in pools and up to four months in spas.

Nature2’s mineral sanitizers create clean, clear water without the harsh effects of traditional chemicals such as bromine and chlorine, usage of which is reduced by up to 50 percent in most pools and spas.

The result is a pure, clean swimming experience in water that feels soft and gently soothing.
