It’s a brand name for the chemical preservative-free polyhexamethylene biguanide, better known as PHMB, also known as biguanide. It’s a chlorine-free sanitizer. It was originally developed as a surgical disinfectant. It’s actually similar to hydrogen peroxide.

Then, in 1977, a method for using biguanide to control bacteria and algae in pool water was patented, and companies began using it to manufacture pool chemicals.
