The Season of Giving: ChildFund International

The Power of Revive!

Revive is one of the most powerful tools in the APi line of products. Revive is a multi-action product that removes phosphates (algae food), metals including copper and iron, scaling carbonates, organic debris and other contaminants that cause cloudy water. It is formulated for use on new pool startups, replaster / remodel / refills, spring openings, abandoned pools, severe algae cleanups and ongoing maintenance of all swimming pools. Revive is compatible with all types of pool chemicals, finishes, and sanitizers and it doesn’t cloud the water in your pool or stain the pool during treatment! Get rid of that pile of products that you use to treat your cloudy pools and replace it with just one, Revive!

Here are some amazing before and after photos that illustrate the true power of Revive!

It’s Time to Winterize Your Pool

It seems like only a week ago that we were talking about the best way to open your pool. In the blink of an eye, summer has ended for many of you and it’s time to close your pool for the approaching winter. Here at APi, we strive to make winterizing your pool an easy, safe, and efficient process. That’s why we tell all of our customers and dealers to use E-Z POOL to winterize their pool!

winterize your pool


E-Z POOL simplifies seasonal pool closings / winterizing for traditional CHLORINE, BROMINE, SALT WATER, or E-Z POOL treated pools in one E-Z application.

No pre-treating or other chemicals needed — just add E-Z POOL to oxidize contaminants, prevent algae and control stain and scale through the winter season. Spring openings are faster, water is clearer and most importantly you can swim sooner when the time finally comes!

E-Z POOL is faster and more effective than multi-product winter kits. Save yourself time and money by only having to use one product to winterize your pool. E-Z POOL is effective for chlorine, bromine, salt, mineral, UV and all pools that are treated with E-Z POOL.

How to Winterize Your Pool with E-Z POOL

To start the process of winterizing, simply use 1lb or 2 scoops of E-Z POOL per every 5k gallons of your pool. For best results, circulate the pool for 30 minutes prior to closing. Then, patiently wait for spring to roll around, and be sure to use Revive! for best results upon opening your pool again! How easy is that!?

  • “Just wanted to thank you for a great product. After four weeks of trying several different products and also adding way to much chlorine, we can finally see the bottom of our pool. Added Revive! at 6PM last night, by the time we went to bed, we could notice a difference and when I got up this morning everything had settled to the bottom. Used the vacuum for about an hour this morning and were swimming this afternoon. Will probably have to vacuum once more, but so glad this product was recommended to us.”

  • “Easy, simple, worry free…these all describe how my pool maintenance has been since I started using EZ POOL! I have a big pool and it is not a big job with E-Z POOL, just once a week. Once the pool is open and clear in the spring, I just have Caryl’s experts test my pool sample once a week to make sure the balancing chemicals and pH are good. Algaecides are not needed. Brush, brush, brush, as Caryl recommends and my pool is beautiful all summer! Also, it is gentle to the skin and does not effect your hair color. I highly recommend E-Z POOL!”

  • “I have used the EZ Spa now for four years. It is the best spa treatment I have ever used. It makes the water feel really soft and refreshing. I use it once a week and forget it. My spa stays crystal clear. I love this stuff. Not to mention when you use EZ Spa you don’t have to buy so many other chemicals. I also noticed that EZ Spa is extremely gentle on the skin. I can’t say enough about how good this stuff is. Try it, you’ll love it!”
