      Miracle pill
      Great product it does a lot and you do not need any other products but company needs to do something about shipping and or handling it is really ridiculous

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

      Fantastic
      Bought this 7 weeks ago and has made the pool sparkling clear and easy to manage. I still vacuum the pool every week but have not had to add chemicals at all. Love this

      Good stuff hopefully
      Seems to be working great so far. I just put it in the pool about 24 hours ago. So I'll update later

      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.

      Stain Away is Terrific
      Stain Away is a terrific product. I have some problems with stain primarily because of extremely hard water. Stain Away does a great job of keeping the sides and bottom of the pool in really nice condition.

      It worked!
      I had iron stains on my pool liner from using well water. My first attempt to get rid of the stains worked but then they came back in a couple days. My second attempt included using the CULator and the stains did not come back! I am so relieved to be done with that problem.

      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.

      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

      crystal clear
      I have been using this product for years in my pool -- just an ounce or two every week and the water is always perfectly clear.

      For sure Magic stuff!
      I bought this product because we have a lot of iron in our water and I did not realize the affects that has on a pool. I did not know the brand just picked it out. First of all it was priced well based on my search and it worked within a few days the difference was amazing. We converted to a salt water pool - above ground and with the use of this product our pool is the clearest it has ever been. About to re-order for maintenance use now. very pleased.

      It's crystal clear which clarifier is the best
      I spent less on clarifiers, but this one is worth it's weight in gold. It works like a gem (Sapphire). Water temperature and/or water ph doesn't seem to affect the workability of this product. Hands down the best clarifier.

      E-Z Stain Remover
      I purchased this product after doing a bit of research to find a product that indicated it would remove the stain on my pool liner. I had my doubts. I followed the directions to the letter to ensure E-Z Stain would had a chance to work. To my surprise after I cleaned the pool a couple of says after application the stains that had been in the pool for 3 years were gone. Excellent product.

      Amazing product!
      We had light brown to yellow staining below the waterline for 2 years now. Used a spray on scale remover for the exposed liner. I lowered the PH and chlorine levels per the directions, put in 1 bottle of the product for my 21,200 gallon pool and just 24 hours we literally had a new liner. We use well water to refill so I will be using a iron sequesterant to prevent future stains. Well worth the price!

      I live in Southeast Texas and in fortunatel got Flood waters in my house and in my pool. It was so dirty couldn't see bottom. After cleaning pool out best I could the walls and bottom had turned green. After about $150 worth of chemicals and a lot of time tried EZ stain remover. After getting the pH of the water correct added this product and to my amazement my pool is now green free nice and clean.

      It gets the job done, though i would like if the package was slightly easier to open with out scissors.

      Stain after using shock
      Stained the bottom of my plastered pool black within 24 hours of changing the entire pool's water. After about 36 hours, the stain spontaneously disappeared. Not sure why. It was not algae and didn't scrape off with a metal bristled brush. I'll try it one more time since the adverse reaction wasn't permanent.

      pool shock
      I have been using this and the super pool shock for years. Always a great product

      Super Stain Away
      I have been using Super Stain Away for a year or so and It has a big difference in our pool. Previously, we were getting stains in the bottom of our pool (cement bottom) perhaps due to the fact that we have a well. This product has kept any stains from appearing.

      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 Is The Bomb!!
      I called customer service as I had these brown stains in my above ground pool. It would not scrub off and I was wearing myself out!!!The rep told me it sounded like metal stain and to try the Stain Away. I did and let me tell you this product is the bomb!! If you have a pool with this issue call- - In The Swim!! They have really helped me with my problems concerning pool care. Thank You In The Swim and the rep that recommended it!!

      CuLators are great!
      CuLators are a terrific product. I have well water and since I've started using them my pool's metal count has stayed down and hardly any stains.

      Eliminated My Metal Problems!
      After redoing my pool, about two months later I started having some stains show up. I did an ID and found out that I had some iron staining. So, I bought Metal Free and the problem went away, but it kept coming back week after week. So, I read some good reviews about CuLator and decided to try it. I bought my first bag and I noticed the stuff inside the bag turned yellow after about a week. I left it in for the month and I was impressed. It took a few bags, and a few months, but my problem ... read more hasn't come back! CuLator says it eliminates the metals from the water and I am a believer! The other thing is CuLator doesn't have any phosphates.

      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.

    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.
