Introduction to Creative Water Solutions
The story about how CWS co-founders David and Vance made the leap from Sphagnum moss healing wounds in World War I to using it to treat water in multiple industries.

PoolMoss® Brochure
PoolMoss® treated pools have remarkable water clarity, air quality and swimming comfort. Swimmers and bathers report fewer breathing issues, burning eyes, skin discomfort and more enjoyable experience.

SpaMoss® Brochure
SpaMoss® brings a truly new level of ease and enjoyment to your spa. Harnessing the natural power of Sphagnum moss, SpaMoss® does the same thing for pools and spas that it does for lakes, streams, and rivers.

Salt Generator Brochure
Hypochlorous acid “salt” generators and PoolMoss® were made for each other. Depending on the chemical composition of the local water, a lot of scale can accumulate between the plates, requiring acid washing or costly replacement.
