New MysticBlue, an antimicrobial-treated pool filter sand from US Silica, the maker of Mystic White, helps inhibit the growth of microorganisms on the filter, prevent algae and inhibit odor-causing bacteria. It’s uniformly sized with an angular shape to improve filter performance. The result is superior water filtration, which leads to cleaner, clearer, fresher water, according to company officials.
