It is not affected by high levels of cyanuric acid and works in water conditions with higher pH levels, unlike other treatment programs. Green Aid is great for pools with salt chlorine generators and can be used with all pool surfaces. naturalchemistry.com | (800) 753-1233

Water ShadeThe Water Shade Canopy Float Kit's patented design allows a pop up canopy to sit safely on a body of water to give swimmers shade. The kit includes four inflatable pods (made of durable PVC vinyl), an air pump and a tether system for anchoring, all of which are easily stored in a nylon tote bag when not in use. The inflatable pods securely attach to each of the canopy leg stake holes of most standard canopies. Attachment is made with a custom designed quick flip clip to secure each pod to its canopy leg. After use, it is easily removed by reversing the process when the canopy is out of water. It also allows the canopy to attach to an existing anchor. Also available is the Water Shade Wind Anchoring System, which utilizes nylon mesh bags that attach at the bottom of each pod and fill with water to protect the canopy from unexpected wind conditions. watershade.com | (480) 729-2410
