Stain Away has been helping to maintain my pool from stains for years with no complaints. In addition it also works well to remove any stains during the opening process. Works as discribed.

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.

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 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.

You get what you pay for here...
I purchased this product to remove some staining left behind from residual leaves that had falling to the bottom of the pool where they stayed over the winter months. Now I have a fiberglass pool that is white. Every year I have this problem and have always used EZ-Stain away to remove them. But it is twice the price of this product and looking to save $$$ I went cheaper and lost out. Stains still there. EZ-Stain Away always worked for me in the past. Should have stayed with it. Lesson learned trying to save money. I have 20,000 gallon pool and two full quarts of this product should have more than done the job according the directions @ $12.99 each. Will now have spend the $24.99 a quart to get the job done right. Guess you get what you pay for...
