Complete Tabs and Sticks Vs. Basic Tabs: What’s the Difference?

Does your water feel soft and silky smooth? If you are using regular, basic tabs in your pool, your water doesn’t feel as good as it should. That’s why you want to look at BioGuard SilkGuard Complete tabs and sticks. They are so much better than regular tabs, and you will notice a difference!

Let’s look at Complete tabs and Sticks versus basic tabs and uncover the difference.

Get Softer Pool Water with Long-Lasting Protection

BioGuard SilkGuard Complete

BioGuard SilkGuard Complete® is a multi-tasking pool sanitizer that not only makes your swimming pool water feel velvety soft and clean but also lasts longer in your skimmer, floater, or feeder. These amazing products also offer added algae prevention.

Sanitizers are vital to the proper maintenance of your swimming pool. Chlorine and bromine keep your pool water clear and protected from bacteria, and they help control algae. They are part of the BioGuard® 3-Step Pool Care System.

The SilkGuard Complete® Advantage

  • The best BioGuard sanitizers feature a unique blend of premium technologies that are found ONLY at BioGuard dealers, like Ultra Modern.
  • SilkGuard technology makes water soft and smooth. It prevents scaling and protects against corrosion and metal staining.
  • SmartGuard® technology makes tabs and sticks last longer than plain white chlorine products.

SilkGuard Complete® Tabs/Sticks

  • All pools. All pumps. All applications.
  • Unique compressed blue sanitizer tabs or sticks that dissolve much slower when the pump is turned off due to our SmartGuard® technology.
  • Contains algae-fighting crystals for improved performance

Don’t buy the plain basic tabs any longer! Enjoy your pool so much more with BioGuard SilkGuard Complete® tabs and sticks this year!

Don’t Drain Your Above Ground Pool for Winter

Do you own an above ground pool? Have you ever heard that you shouldn’t drain your above ground pool before you get ready to close for the winter? Well, it turns out you don’t want to drain your above ground pool for winter. Why?

Let’s talk about the reasons you shouldn’t drain your above ground pool before you close it.

Keep Damage Your Pool

You don’t want to drain your above ground pool because you want to keep it structurally sound.

If you drained, and it sat empty in your backyard, it would fill with dirt and debris. It would also be filled with snow and ice.

Worse yet, it’s very expensive and time-consuming to refill and then chemically balance your pool in the spring if you have to refill the whole thing!

How to Close It

You can find all the instructions for closing your above ground pool on our website.

Use Air Pillows

Air pillows, also found at Ultra Modern, are another must-have accessory for closing your above ground pool!

Before you put your winter cover on, you want to put an air pillow in the center of your pool. Then, when the water freezes and expands, you won’t harm your pool wall, the cover, or the liner.

Your air pillow helps absorb the expansion of the water, keeping your above ground pool safe.

Use Water Bags

Water bags are a cost-effective and easy way to hold down the pool cover on your above ground pool. You can find them at any of our three stores.

Water bags can withstand the cold, and you can trust that they’ll secure your pool cover all winter!

Closing Your Above Ground Pool
