    Stain Chemicals

    1. 11 months ago
      Worked great !!
      We bought this item in hopes to lower our copper levels. And to our surprise it has worked great leap . We put in the 4.0 Culater in the main pump drain, as well as a 1.0 in both our side drains. We had the water tested two days ago and are copper levels went from 0.2. To 0. For the past seven years I have always had high copper levels and now I don’t. I will always have these on hand there’s supposed to be good for 30 days I think

      Works in toilets too
      I actually dropped this in my toilet tank to decrease the rust staining in the toilet bowl. It worked really well. But you have to remove the rust stains in the bowl first. It doesn't remove the stains but the iron in your water

      Works when nothing else would.
      If someone told me metal stains were such a problem, I might have thought twice about getting a pool. Seriously, I've got no time or patience for it, and even my pool guy can't figure out what's up. I was just about ready to throw in the towel when a friend recommended CuLator. It's a little pricey, but after the money already spent, what did I have to lose? THE STUFF WORKS. Don't know how, don't care, it just does. Couldn't be easier, just replace the cartridge once a month. Wish I had found this years ago.

      This stuff works!
      I had rust stains in my pool after opening up the pool this spring. This product cleaned the stains quickly and completely. I poured some directly over the bad areas and the rust stains dissolved like magic. I was impressed with this stain remover. I will be buying more to have on hand.

      Not quite there
      We used this product in our 20 x 40 i ground pool but it only took out about 60 or 70% of the stains. Perhaps I didn’t mix it enough but I’m pretty sure we had the PH & Chrorine at the right levels for putting this cleaner in. We’re probably going to give it another try...

      Works great on older liners.
      We have an older liner, this product clears it up nicely.

      Works, but only
      where water is drained and it is applied to the pool surface full strength. Dropped water below steps, cleaned them great. However it did not get the stains from the bottom of pool.

      Great stain rover
      We purchased Jack"s Magic The Blue Stuff Stain Remover about 2 weeks ago .. The local birds enjoyed eating and carrying mulberries around and over our pool while we were on vacation. The stains on the bottom of our pool were terrible. Nothing the local pool stores carry came close to helping. We had used Jack's Magic several years ago with great success. So we decided to try it again. We had a beautiful blue pool bottom within 24 hours. We would recommend it to any pool owner.

      Awesome "Stuff"
      Cleared up my cloudy pool in two days, due to high Copper readings. Very impressed and will continue to use to maintain that sparkle in my pool.

      Easy to use
      Good price and easy to use. Worked very well in my salt pool.

      works as advertised
      I used this together with Jack's Blue pool stuff! Both worked GREAT! My pool steps are back to white. instead of grungy brown. Our Water softener failed and we didn't know it. So each time we put water into our pool, we were dumping iron contaminated water in. Was a nightmare, but in just under 24 hours, these 2 products cleared things up. NO dropping chlorine levels, just use as directed.

      Worked as described! Great product.
      I bought this a few weeks ago based on the great reviews. We have well water and extremely high levels of iron in our water. I've had it in the pool two weeks now so I won't know how good it is for a couple of weeks yet when I test the water again, but the bag has turned a deep brown and I am assuming it is really working.

      Pool shock review
      The shock is very good and at a reasonable price. The only problem is the handling charge. That makes the product not as compeditive.

      Great product. I’ve been using this for past 15 years. Highly recommend it.

      Pool Shock
      I normally buy cheap shock and end spending more money. Last year I bought 12 bags of shock and only needed 6 bags the entire summer season.

      Worked Where Others Failed
      I have tried a number of products in the past two years to rid my plastered in-ground pool of stains. Most of the bottom in the deep end was covered with a stain, and there were worsening patches on the sides and in the shallower portions. I used a number of metal-sequestering products that seemed to keep the stains from getting worse, but none that would lighten them. After the first application of Stain-Away the large stain was slightly lighter, so I followed up 2 weeks later with another ... read more application at the inital dosage (15 oz per 10K gallons). Then the 5oz dosage for the next 2 weeks, backwashing every other day. The stains have all but disappeared, and the water seems clearer than it has for years! I'll definitely continue to use Stain-Away. I had almost resigned myself to draining and acid-washing the pool before next year's opening. I'm glad that I can forget that option.

      Actually does what it claims.
      I had staining on both our steps and the liner itself. I thought I probably was going to have to replace the liner. I purchased two bottles of "Stain Away", as a last resort. (I figured it was worth the gamble). Within two days, the steps and liner were free of all the rusty discoloration. I do not know where the staining came from, since we have city water. But if the problem ever re-occurs, I will try "Stain Away" first rather than last.

      great product
      I have been searching for a product that is easy to use to remove the light brown stains that creep up the sides of my fiberglass pool. this is the most effective method that does not wipe out my chlorine. It is definitely worth a try.

      Works great for fiberglass pool!
      I've been battling tan metal stains in my pool for the last couple years. The ascorbic acid treatments were getting expensive, and were not a preventative either. This is both a stain treatment and preventative. I tried it out the other day just for comparison, and was amazed that the tan stains were completely gone the next day! It was much more effortless than the ascorbic acid, plus no need to rebalance the pool either. Just pour it into a bucket of water to dilute, pour the mixture around ... read more the edge of the pool, and done! I know that the tea-colored/tan stains cause fiberglass pool owners to go nuts, so if that's you, definitely give this a try!

      Super Stain Away
      I had a huge stain, it was on exactly half of my pool, didn't know why but it was a line down the middle of the pool. Bought this stain away about a month ago used it once and it lightened the stain, so I bought another and used it and the stain was gone. I highly recommend this product.

      Really works!!!
      My pool walls and bottom was stained brown and went to the local pool store and they sold me 106.00 worth of chemicals that didn't work. Ordered super stain away and it worked overnight. Amazing stuff!! Saved my summer. Thought I was done swimming for the rest of the summer. Was ready to close my pool.

      Great product! I wish we had this in past few years.

    In The Swim Knowledge Pool: Stain Chemicals

    In The Swim's Dr. Pool

    Stain & Scale Control in Pools

    Pool stain chemicals are an integral part of keeping your pool looking clean, new and inviting. Keeping your pool water balanced and keeping a clean pool sometimes are not enough. In addition to our In The Swim stain chemicals, we also carry Aqua Pills, Jack's Magic, Natural Chemistry, and Sea-Klear pool stain chemicals. There are two types of pool stain chemicals - stain removers and stain preventers, and some that do a little of both. 

    Pool Stain Removers

    With balanced chemistry and a clean pool, stain removers are sprinkled over the surface to lift pool stains. For general purpose organic stains, try E-Z stain remover and for metallic stains try A Plus stain remover. You can also make a Stain Sock by pouring one of our stain removers, or pH Decreaser into a thin sock or hosiery, tied off tightly. Place directly over the stain, moving the location every few minutes, in the pool or with your pool brush. Finally a use for those orphan socks! 

    Pool Stain Preventers

    Commonly called Stain & Scale chemicals, this group of pool stain chemicals is used to keep minerals and metals dissolved in solution. Known in the trade as sequestering agents, they chemically lock-up metals and minerals, so they cannot come out of solution to stain your pool surfaces. Pool stain prevention chemicals include products like Super Stain Away and SeaKlear Metal Klear. Use weekly to prevent pool stains from iron, calcium and copper, by keeping these metals and minerals safely dissolved. 

    Pool Metal Removers

    Sequestering agents don't actually remove metals from the water, they simply keep them dissolved in solution, as long as you add regular maintenance doses. However, major chemical movements or poor water chemistry can force metals and minerals out of solution, where they can stain or cloud the pool water. In such cases, an effective DE or Cartridge filter can remove suspended minerals and metals. One chemical however, CuLator Metal Eliminator and Stain Preventer actually REMOVES metals from your pool water. Place the packet in the cage and drop it in your skimmer basket - absorbs copper, iron, manganese, nickel and cobalt ions.
