An enzyme is defined as a protein substance produced by a living organism that acts as a catalyst to bring about a specific biochemical reaction. Enzymes help speed up a chemical reaction. Enzymes bind to molecules and alter them in very specific ways. Enzymes exist in every living and dead organisms on the planet. An enzymes purpose is to break down organic matter.
Municipal drinking water and waste water treatment facilities have been using catalyst enzymes for treatment for years. The use of enzymes in pool and spa water treatment has come into it’s own in recent years. With the addition of enzymes in pool and spa water the enzymes move about freely through the water and collect the oils, lotions, make up, hair products, and other carbon base organic materials.
Once the enzyme encounters that material it forms a substrate complex, upon completion of the reaction the enzyme is released and off to perform its reaction again. Here is What happens. The enzymes eat the carbon base organic waste, breaking down the carbon chain of molecules an destroying it to the point all that is left is the inert solids and Co2 gas bubbles which be off gassed out of the pool and the inert solids trapped in your pool filter.
This will help reduce the sanitizer demand by consuming visible and non-visible organic matter in the pool and spa water as well as increase filter cleaning intervals.
eThe catalytic abilities of enzymes are affected by many different conditions. Temperature, pH changes, water activity, ionic strength and other variables all influence the ability of a protein to function as an enzyme. For instance, an enzyme that is very effective in one environment may be completely ineffective when introduced into an environment — like a swimming pool where high levels of oxidizers are present — that can alter the enzyme structure. This is why it is critically important to choose an enzyme that has been specifically designed for use in pool and spa environments
For large pools or pools with high bather loads, the addition of enzymes reduce the chlorine sanitization demand and demand to shock the pool while breaking down oils, make up, hair products, tanning oils, sunscreens and organics that deposit themselves on the filter media, skimmer box, waterline tile enzymes specifically seek out non-living organics found in water:
I highly recommend using
Orenda Technologies CV-600 catalytic enzyme water cleaner.
I’ve witnessed it’s power and effectiveness and I can say with certainty my own eyes have seen it work.
Its NSF / ANSI certified made in the U.S.A and drinking water safe.

Enzymes specifically seek out non-living organics found in water and remove them!
Common Non-Living Organic Pollutants
- Bird droppings - Human hair
- Sunscreen - Cosmetics
- Body oils - Wind-blown dust
- Dead leaves - Pets or wild animals
- Dead Insects - Grass or Mulch
- Dead skin - Hair products
-Urine – Feces - Saliva
- Pollen - Air pollution
Enzymes are not needed in every pool but can become a time and money saver on difficult to maintain pools and or pools with high bather loads. Enzymes remove the building blocks that contribute to bigger water chemistry problems by breaking down and consuming contaminants.
Enzymes do not consume live bacteria but are specifically attracted to non-living organic pollutants and help make the job easier for sanitizing chemicals like chlorine to work. Enzymes thrive as outstanding clarifiers, stain removers, and foam preventers. Enzymes cannot eliminate living algae but they will breakdown dead algae after an algae treatment.
For pool owners or pool service professionals, determining when the right time to use an enzyme is usually easy. Pools and spas that experience heavy bather loads, large amount of organic contamination, or have bathers who routinely enter the pool or spa before showering are your prime targets to use enzymes.
