    Jack's Magic The Copper & Scale Stuff

    Item # Y3314 Manuf.# JMCOPPER5

      Jack's Magic Copper & Scale Stuff, or Stain Solution #2 is an amazing stain removal product. Copper scale forms as a teal color on pool surfaces most usually, but in higher concentrations can be very dark, so as to appear nearly black. Jack's Magic Copper stuff works like a No-Drain acid wash to remove calcium scale, or copper staining in pools, spas and fountains. 

      Jack's Magic Copper & Scale Stuff is a slow acid wash procedure, normally taking 2-5 days to remove copper stains and calcium scale. Follow label instructions carefully, which specifies water balance and operational requirements for successful copper stain removal.  5 lb pail.

      Dosage: Use 10 lbs Jack's Magic Copper & Scale Stuff per 10,000 gallons of pool water.
      Also Required: 1/2 gallon muriatic acid or 1 lb pH decreaser, per 10,000 gallons of pool water.
      Also Required: 12 ounces of Jack's Magic Blue Stuff, per 10,000 gallons of pool water.
      Suggested: Jack's Magic Stain ID Kit, to verify treatment with the Copper Stuff, or Stain Solution #2.
      Suggested: Jack's Magic Filter Fiber Stuff, to improve filtration during the stain removal process.

      • Customer Review
      • FAQS
      How long should I run my pump after adding Stain Solution #2?
      Run your pump continuously for the duration of the treatment. Pool heaters should have a temporary or permanent bypass installed, to avoid stripping more copper from a copper heat exchanger.
      With Jack's Magic Copper treatment, do I still need to add additional acid if my Alkalinity and pH are already low?
      Yes, we recommend following the instructions in most situations. Lowering the pH and alkalinity Very Low is all part of the process.
      I did the #2 treatment and now my test kit shows no chlorine.
      The Stain Solution #2 treatment will create a combined chlorine reading for as long as 30 days. Do not shock the pool for two weeks following the treatment. Test for both free and total chlorine to avoid over chlorinating the pool.
      During treatment, can the pool be used?
      When doing a Stain Solution #2 treatment we do not recommend pool use by people or pets due to the pH being below the normal levels, usually in the 5-6 pH range.
      How long will the stain removal treatment take?
      Stain Solution #2 treatment works slowly and can take from 2 days to 2 weeks.
      Can I use Stain Solution #2 with an Ionizer or Nature 2 system? 
      Yes you can, though you should call Jack’s Magic technical support for assistance (800) 348-1656
