The Nature 2 W28000 DuoClear replacement cartridge is used with the DuoClear in-ground pool system. The DuoClear combines the sanitizing effects and water clarity of Nature2 mineral technology with the convenience of automatic chlorine generation from Clearwater salt technology. The Nature2 mineral-bed technology uses silver and copper to combat bacteria. The saltwater chlorinator component automatically produces low levels of chlorine, eliminating the need to buy and store chlorine. Together these two technologies create a low-maintenance, low-cost system for pool sanitizing, with water that feels soft and silky.
