From what I gather from reading the back of the bottle of Clarifier that I use in my pool a Clarifier is a Flocculent. The clarifier contains a polymer that attracts the smaller particles floating around in the pool that are too small to be filtered through some filtration systems. As the clarifier attracts the smaller particles it becomes large enough for the filtration system to filter it out of the water thus clariying the pool water.
