Is there a more environmentally friendly way to care for your pool?
Anyone use the Natural Chemistry Stuff?

The Natural Chemistry stuff, Pool Perfect etc., works well but is only in addition to your normal 4-5 chemicals.

You need chlorine
You need to balance pH
You need to balance Alkalinity
You need to balance Calcium
You need to balance Stabilizer IF you have an outdoor Pool

Pool perfect "eats" organic material and chloramines. In this way it helps the chlorine out quite a bit and if you don't use as much chlorine you won't need to tend to your pH and Alkalinity so much and therefore it could be construed as environmentally friendly.
