Here is what some happy Pool-Owners and Pool Professionals have to say about Jolly Gel:-

Never had the pool so crystal clear and sparkly. This stuff is amazing. Erika Chalker, Nerja.

Just wanted you to know that having recently watched your video I purchased your Jolly Gel and have found it to be the most effective water clarification product I have ever used in the last 22 years of pool ownership so congratulations on a wonderful product.
Sincerely, Mike Butcher, Mallorca

I have to say that I've seen a lot (hundreds) of products touted for swimming pools claiming all sorts of miracle short-cuts. But, having had an issue with a persistently cloudy pool that normal floc was not sorting out, I tried Jolly Gel for the first time. I haven't stopped using it since and the clarity of the water it gives is honestly incredible. I'll never clean the pump basket again without putting a cube in! Justin Orton, Javea

Just used our first Jolly Gel!!! AMAZING..... afraid we didn't take photos....  we are amazed!!! It's a small plunge pool and looks fantastic!!! Cathy Dodd, Nerja

This is the first time I have used Jolly Gel in my pool. Within a few hours the water was "crystal clear". If it was not for the jets making ripples in the pool, you would think there was no water in it! The most clear and clean our pool has ever been.  I have no hesitation in recommending Jolly Gel. - Richard Allan, Torrevieja.

This stuff is brilliant. Pool nearly spotless and only been in three days.
Will definitely be getting some more. Thanks. Karen Clements, Casares

Jolly gel did it again. Pool is clear. Yiiiipppppeeee! Pat J, Alhaurín el Grande

We have found Jolly Gel to be invaluable in our professional maintenance of 50+ pools on the Costa del Sol, Spain. Every one of them is as clear as water can possibly be, and we don't need to backwash the filters very often. This saves a lot of water! Andrew, Coín

I've only been using Jolly Gel a short time and the effect is noticeable when the pool light is on at night and there is no beam visible in the water! Lovely clear water! - Julian Lucock, Coín

Hello I need to write to you as my pool water has always been a problem to maintain mainly not helped by high levels of dust from the Sahara desert.  A friend gave me a packet of your Jolly Gel. I was told to put one cube in the pump  basket and run the pump overnight, wow , what a surprise in the morning,  the water was brilliant.  What a great product.  - Jack Ward, Cartagena, Spain

I have been using Jolly Gel now for several years and I have found it to be invaluable not only as a day to day maintenance product to keep my pool sparklingly clear, but also on occasion in other pools which have a hazy cast  to the water. The use of one Jolly Gel block clears the pool overnight, ready for backwashing the next day, to leave a clear pool ready for use. A simple to use product I would recommend to anyone who has a pool.  Barry B, Velez Malaga 

If you need to know the bad points of Jolly Gel I can only think of one, and that is running out of it! It has worked absolute marvels on my pool. The clarity is crystal clear, as if the water drained out overnight. Nikki B, Alora

Since we started to use Jolly Gel the pool is so clean that we only need to backwash the filter every 6 weeks. This saves a lot of water! Anthony Ailsbury, Murcia

I already use Jolly Gel, I purchased it from the Over Fifty's Show, and am very pleased with the results, hence the re-order. Elaine, Velez de Benaudalla

I was having problems with a cloudy pool a few weeks ago, I tried Jolly Jell, started seeing the difference within about four hours, clear in about 16 hours. Mark Ellison

Tried it for the first time.... from green and cloudy to crystal clear! Silvan Xuereb, Malta smile

I was having problems with a cloudy pool a few weeks ago, I tried Jolly Jell, started seeing the difference within about four hours, clear in about 16 hours. Kris, Salobreña

Can't believe how well this stuff works, I had a cloudy pool and thought I would give this a go as the reviews seemed quite good. The pool is 38,000 litres and as per the instructions I dropped one cube in to the pump basket - wasn't expecting over much as I found it hard to believe that a small cube like that could have any effect on that amount of water, well, 4 hours later and the water was almost perfectly clear and today, 24 hours later, every trace of cloudy water has gone, it's now crystal clear.

Got cloudy water? got a sand filter? just buy this stuff and get it sorted quickly. Chris Nicholls. (UK)

Have been using this brand since it was suggested to me by my pool shop many years ago. Makes quite a difference and people comment on the sparkling water in my pool :-) T.J.

Great product. Does exactly what it says. My pool is looking crystal clear . Susan Prange

I rarely leave reviews. Have been battling to keep my pool clear for years. These little cubes are literally magic. Amazing water clarity like I've never had before within 24 hours. Mark Copeman

Brilliant product. Cleared the pool in a couple of days. Lorraine Steele

We had been told about it... Tried it... perfect! We have had a swimming pool for 18yrs and never have we had the water this clear. Stuart Perkins

Jolly Gel is formulated for sand-filters filled with Silex (sand), glass media or zeolite.

It is not suitable for paper filter cartridges or DE filters.

For paper filters (cartridges) use Jolly Gel Spa, which can be placed in the pump or skimmer basket.

 

 

Jolly Gel removes suspended particles 5 times smaller than sand (or glass) can alone.

It works in a totally different way to other clarifiers by placing a glutinous, porous membrane over and between the grains of filter media.

The membrane catches particles on contact and holds them 'prisoner' until the next back-wash. The membrane, and everything that it has caught, is flushed away during a regular back-wash.

Jolly Gel cleans the water so perfectly that it becomes almost invisible!

And it saves much more money than it costs . . .

How?

1.   By reducing back-washing

Jolly Gel gets the water so clean there is nothing left for the filter to catch, and back-washing can be reduced to every 3 - 6 weeks instead of weekly, producing a big saving in water bills. Costly chemicals and heat are also lost during back-washing. When the pool is topped up from mains supply the pool temperature drops - so the pool heater has to run for longer to compensate.

Approx. annual saving of 10,500 US Gallons (40m³) of water in an average 50m³ private pool.

2.   By removing Phosphates (algae food)

Jolly Gel strips phosphates from the water. Without food algae cannot grow, so less sanitiser is needed and chemical bills are reduced.

3.   By extending equipment life

Here's where we get a little technical but please read on and all will be explained . . .

Jolly Gel works in a totally different way to other pool clarifiers.

Unlike other clarifiers it is not dosed into the pool - it goes in the pump strainer basket (NOT IN THE SKIMMER).

Circulating water dissolves the gel, which then fills the spaces between the grains of filter media to increase filter efficiency, removes the tiniest suspended particles and DOUBLES the life of the media.

Jolly Gel stays in the filter, working its' magic, and does not get out into the pool-water.

 

Sand-filters are normally filled with a very special type of sand called Silex - produced by crushing silicate rock.

Most of the world's sand is more-or-less round because it has been knocked about in water, causing the rough edges to be broken off. Think about pebbles on a beach or in a river - they are all pretty much rounded. No matter how tightly the pebbles are packed together there are big gaps between them.

'Round' sand is totally useless in a sand-filter, but Silex is NOT rounded - its grains have flat faces and sharp angles.

Now imagine 2 grains of Silex, glass media  pressed tightly together in your filter. It's the size of the tiny gap between the grains that determines how small a particle can be physically trapped there.

New Silex will filter to around 15 microns (15 millionths of a metre). When the little gaps between the grains become plugged up with trapped particles, filter pressure increases and the amount of water being returned to the pool at the Jets is reduced. At this point the filter must be back-washed.

Back-washing damages the filter media

During a back-wash the water flow is reversed through the filter and the filter bed is 'fluidised': - the media is now in really turbulent water and the grains smash into each other, just like on a beach.

The result is that microscopic particles are chipped off the grains. These micro-particles are much too small to be caught in a sand-filter - they're even too small to sink to the floor of the pool!

They are constantly recirculated around the pool and, as they pass through the sand-filter, they erode the sand because they are exactly as hard as the material they were chipped-off from.

After 3 years or so the erosion is so bad that all the sharp edges are worn away, all the flat faces become pitted and the sand becomes rounded. The filter is no longer capable of keeping the water clean; so the media must be changed. This costs anything from €350 upwards, depending on the size of the filter.

 

When Jolly Gel is used the abrasive particles of filter media are caught in the glutinous membrane on contact, and flushed to the drains during a normal back-wash.

The result is that there is now absolutely nothing left in the water for the filter to catch and therefore back-washing can be reduced to every 3 - 6 weeks instead of weekly.

Less frequent back-washing dramatically reduces wear-and-tear on the filter media - giving it at least DOUBLE the life, and often much longer.

NOTE: if you have glass media either get rid of it or immediately start using Jolly Gel. The microscopic chips of glass can enter the eyes and cause permanent damage, but Jolly Gel will catch them!

3a   Do you have a salt pool? You can use Jolly Gel!

The abrasive micro-particles of filter-media also erode the coating of Ruthenium, Tantalum and Iridium on the plates of a salt-water chlorinator cell (replacement plates cost €700 and upwards!), the platinum tip of a pH probe (replacement cost €80 to €150), etc.

Removing micro-particles of filter media with Jolly Gel will greatly extend the life of these items and much other pool equipment.

                                                                           

You'll be pleasantly surprised at just how effective Jolly Gel is!

How to use Jolly Gel

Remove the plastic bag and place the first cube of Jolly Gel in the pump strainer basket.

        pump_and_cube.jpg - 351.03 kB

Note:- It does not matter if the cube has dehydrated and shrunk - it will re-hydrate with no loss of performance.

Run the filter for 24 hours, continuously if possible.

Backwash and rinse the filter, then return to your normal filtration timings.

That's it - you're done!

Note: - It is only necessary to run the pump for 24 hours the first time Jolly Gel is used. Subsequent applications do not require this unless the pool has been allowed to get cloudy.           

Apply a new cube every 3 weeks for a permanently transparent pool.

 

How can I find out if I have these 'invisible' micro-particles in my pool?

Wait until it's dark and then turn the pool lights on - if you can see a 'fan' of light - you have them. (And they're costing you money!)

Now use Jolly Gel for 24 hours and try again - you will not see a fan of light because all the particles will be GONE. Locked away in the Jolly Gel membrane inside the filter! They'll stay there until you next back-wash.

Your equipment will be starting out on its extended life, saving much more money than the cost of the Jolly Gel!

 

Do not freeze Jolly Gel and protect it from frost.

Spanish Homologation Number: 12-70-4627

If your pool is often cloudy it is probable that the filter media needs to be changed - but Jolly Gel will give your sand-filter sand-filter an extra lease of life!

 

Important Note

When using Jolly Gel for the first time, it is important to monitor the pressure reading within the first six hours, or dependent on the filter cycle.

The reason for this is that Jolly Gel collects suspended particles much faster than any other flocculent.

Be aware that the filter pressure will rise faster than normal and it may need to be back-washed sooner than normal.

When the water has been thoroughly cleansed by Jolly Gel, the normal filtration routine can be resumed.

Note:- Jolly Gel is not suitable for DE or cartridge filters.

 

FAQ's

I put a cube of Jolly Gel in the pump strainer basket and it’s still there after 48 hours?

There could be three reasons why the Jolly Gel cube is still in the basket:

1 - You have not run the pump for 24 hours.

2 - The water temperature is below 26C (78F) – if this is the case the cube will dissolve more slowly.

3 - You forgot to remove the cube from the little plastic bag . . . . . .

The Jolly Gel cube has gone hard – is this a problem?

Jolly Gel cubes dehydrate and harden over time, particularly so if it has been stored in high ambient temperatures. The cube going hard is not a problem. Once immersed in water it will return to its original shape and size and will perform perfectly.

How many cubes should I use?

You only need to use one cube, placed in the pump basket (not in the skimmer). One cube will service up to 60m³ (15,850 US gallons) of water for three weeks.

How often do I need to use Jolly Gel?

Continuous use (one cube every 3 weeks) will ensure that the pool is always completely transparent and maximize the extended life of the filter and other pool equipment. Remember that it is not necessary to use Jolly Gel when the pool is closed for winter, so 2 packs a year are often sufficient for most private pools.

Can I put the cube in the skimmer basket?

It is not advisable to put Jolly Gel in the skimmer basket. The skimmer basket collects general debris (e.g. leaves, insects). Jolly Gel is a glutinous substance, so leaves and general debris will stick to it. The recommendation is to place the cube only in the pump strainer basket.

Jolly Gel

Jolly Gel - the miracle pool water clarifier!

 

Supercharge your sand-filter . . . and DOUBLE its' useful life!
 

Click below to watch a short video

EnglishEnglish               -                  EspañolEspañol

Jolly Gel - Filter Booster - filters out particles 5 times smaller than sand alone!

Each pack contains 4 'cubes' of Jolly Gel.
Ideal for use in sand-filterssand-filters with SilexSilexZeoliteZeolite or Glass filter media.
Produces water of incredible clarity and restores the 'sparkle' to swimming pools.
Jolly Gel has a new advanced formula - each 'cube' works for 3 weeks in a pool of up to 60m³ (15,850 US gallons).
It's inexpensive, non-toxic, easy to use and helps maximise chemical efficiency.                                                                                 

You'll be shocked at how effective Jolly Gel is!

Jolly Gel more than pays for itself!

Jolly Gels' unique formulation traps even the tiniest particles, clarifying the water to
'camera-ready' standards, reduces back-washing, strips phosphates and reduces chlorine consumption                                                                  

So . . . .How does it work?

When Jolly Gel is wet it feels like the slipperiest thing imaginable but, at the microscopic level, it is 'sticky'!
Jolly Gel places a porous, glutinous membrane screen over the filter media, down to about 15cm (6") and fills
the spaces between the grains of media.
The 'sticky´ membrane catches the tiniest particles on contact, and holds them prisoner until the filter is back-washed.
After a short while the water will be so clean that it becomes practically invisible!
 
Apply the first cube of Jolly Gel and run the filter for 24 hours. Next, BackwashBackwash the filter, then return to your normal filtration timings. 
 
During the normal back-wash cycle the Jolly Gel membrane is flushed away to the drains and the next cube of Jolly Gel continues to trap tiny particles - making the pool water cleaner and cleaner!
NOTE: - It is only necessary to run the pump for 24 hours the first time Jolly Gel is used. Subsequent applications do not require this unless the pool has been allowed to get cloudy.                                                                     
 
Increases filter efficiency X 5.
Each 'cube' treats a pool of up to 60m³ (15,850 US Gallons) for 3 weeks.
Removes algae and fungal spores, pollen, bacteria, viruses and, unlike most other pool clarifiers, even strips phosphatesphosphates.
(Phosphates are algae food; less phosphates = much less chance of algae = less chlorine needed).
 

Reduces backwashing frequency to every 4-6 weeks instead of weekly.

Backwashing a sand-filter uses lots of costly water, and also wastes the chemicals and heat that are pumped out with that water.

Approx. annual saving of 40m³ (10,500 US Gallons) of water in an average private pool.

Reduces chlorine consumption - and makes for a healthier pool for all the family.
Removes the tiniest particles from the water - and 
extends the life of the filter media and all other pool equipment.
 

How does it extend equipment life? 

Here´s where we get a little technical but please read on and all will be explained . . .

Sand-filters are filled with a very special type of filter media - a type of sand called SilexSilex

Most of the worlds sand is more-or-less round because it has been knocked about in water, causing the rough edges to be knocked off.

Round sand is totally useless in a sand-filter, but Silex is NOT round; its grains have flat faces and sharp edges.

 

Imagine 2 grains of Silex pressed together in your filter - the size of the tiny gap between the grains determines how small a particle can be physically trapped between them.

When Silex is new it will filter down to around 15 microns (15 millionths of a metre) but after a while all the little gaps between the grains become plugged up with captured particles and the filter must be back-washed.

 

During a back-washback-wash the water flow direction through the filter is reversed and the media bed is ´fluidized´: - the sand is now in really turbulent water and the grains bang into each other just like on a surf beach!

The result is that microscopic particles of Silex are chipped off the grains.

These particles are much too small to be caught in a sand-filter and much too small to sink to the floor of the pool.

They are constantly recirculated around the pool and, as they pass through the sand-filter, they ERODE THE SAND because they are exactly as hard as the sand they were chipped-off from.

After 3 years or so the erosion is so bad that all the sharp edges are worn away, all the flat faces become pitted and the sand becomes ´rounded´.

The filter is no longer capable of keeping the water clean; so the media must be changed.

This costs anything from $350 upwards, depending on the size of the filter.

When Jolly Gel is used the microscopic flaked-off particles of filter media are caught in the glutinous membrane, and flushed to the drains during a normal back-wash.

The result is that there is now absolutely nothing left in the water for the filter to catch and therefore back-washing can be reduced to every 4-6 weeks instead of weekly.

Less frequent back-washing dramatically extends the life of the filter media - giving it at least DOUBLE the life, and often much longer.

 

The micro-particles of filter-media also erode the coating of Ruthenium and Iridium (precious metals from the platinum group) on the plates of a salt-water chlorinator cell (replacement plates cost $700 to $1000!), the tip of a pH probe (replacement cost $80 to $150), etc., so removing micro-particles with Jolly Gel will greatly extend the life of these items also.

 

How can I find out if I have these ´invisible´filter-media microparticles in my pool?

Wait until it´s dark and then switch the pool lights on - if you can see a ´fan´of light - you have the problem outlined above!

Now use Jolly Gel for 24 hours and try again - you will not see a fan of light because they will be ALL GONE.

Your pool equipment will be starting out on its extended life, saving much more money than the cost of the Jolly Gel!

 

How to use Jolly Gel

  • Backwash the filter before using Jolly Gel for the first time.

    Ensure the pool water is between pH 7.2 and 7.6 (adjust the pHadjust the pH if it is not within this range).

    Remove the protective plastic bag from the cube before use.
    Note:- It does not matter if the cube has dehydrated and shrunk - it will re-hydrate with no loss of performance.
     

Place the cube in the pump strainer basket not in the skimmer.

Run the pump for 24 hours.

The cube will slowly dissolve as the water passes over it.

Jolly Gel places a porous, clear glutinous membrane screen over the filter media, and penetrates the bed to an average depth of approx. 15cm, filling the tiny spaces between the grains of media. The glutinous structure catches the finest particles and also the microscopic Oocysts (eggs) of Giardia and CryptosporidiumCryptosporidium.
During back-washing, as the filter bed lifts, the Jolly Gel membrane is flushed to waste along with the collected dirt, dust, debris and spores.

Then backwash the filter and return to your normal filtration times.

  • If your pool is often cloudy it is probable that the filter media needs to be changed - but Jolly Gel will give your sand-filter an extra lease of life!

Important Note

  • When using Jolly Gel for the first time, it is important to monitor the pressure reading within the first six hours, or dependent on the filter cycle.
    The reason for this is that Jolly Gel collects suspended particles much faster than any other flocculent.
    Be aware that the filter pressure will rise faster than normal and it may need to be back-washed sooner than normal. 
    When the water has been thoroughly cleansed by Jolly Gel, the normal filtration routine can be resumed.
  • NOTE:- Not suitable for DE or cartridge filters.

    FAQ's

    I put a cube of Jolly Gel in the pump strainer basket and it’s still there after 48 hours?

    There could be three reasons why the Jolly Gel cube is still in the basket:

    1 - You have not run the pump continuously for 24 hours.

    2 - The water temperature is below 26C (78F) – if this is the case the cube will dissolve more slowly.

    3 - You forgot to remove the cube from the little plastic bag . . . . . . 

    The Jolly Gel cube has gone ‘rock hard’ – is this a problem? Jolly Gelcube dehydrates and hardens over time, particularly so if it has been left in a high ambient temperature.

    The cube going hard is not a problem. Once immersed in water it will return to its original shape and size and will perform perfectly.

    How many cubes should I use? You only need to use one cube, placed in the pump basket (not in the skimmer). 

  • For a private pool one cube will service up to 12,500 gallons or 60m³ of water.
  • How often do I need to use Jolly Gel? Continuous use (one cube every 3 weeks) will ensure that the pool is always completely transparent and maximise the extended life of the filter and other pool equipment. Remember that it is not necessary to use Jolly Gel when the pool is winterisedwinterised, so 2 packs a year is sufficient for most private pools. 

  • Can I put the cube in the skimmer basket?  It is not advisable to put Jolly Gel in the skimmer basket. The skimmer basket collects general debris (e.g. leaves, insects). Jolly Gel is a glutinous substance, so leaves and general debris will stick to it. The recommendation is to place the cube only in the pump strainer basket.
