      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 product
      We started out using Metal Magic which did a fare job. Then we went to the Jacks Magic The Blue Stuff and it did great, pool was crystal clear, we really liked it. Last month I went to order more of The Jacks Magic The blue Stuff and ordered Jacks Magic The Sapphire and it has done a great job as well. We feel that both of the Jacks Magic products are top notch but on a personal level I prefer the Jacks Magic The Blue Stuff so I ordered two more quarts. Outstanding product

      Best money spent ever
      This is by far the best clarifier on the market. i have used several others offered here and this one is worth the extra $ it lasts 2 weeks or more in the summer heat. AWESOME! Just buy it!!

      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

      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 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.

      Excellent Product
      I had metal stains on my pool's white walk-in steps when I opened my pool in the Spring a few years ago. I just poured a quart of Stain Away in the area of the steps with the pump not circulating and let it work over night. The next day the stains were gone. Since then I add a quart to my 25,000 gallon pool every fall when I close and quart each spring when I open my pool. I haven't had stained steps since.

      After getting my pool opened and cleaned up, the water was still a weird shade of green, even though it was clear. After some research, I suspected it was excess copper. This got rid of the copper in the water, and the pool is now crystal blue. It didn't get rid of the staining on the stairs, maybe another bottle will?

      This product works very well!
      I have had an ongoing problem with staining on my steps. After removing the stains with Stain Free, I dropped the Culator in the basket as directed, and have had no more staining now for three weeks so far....a first!

      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.

      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.

      shock your pool
      Strong enough to clean but works fast enough to go swimming soon after applying

      Excellent product
      I have been using this product from in the swim for several years now and have absolutely no complaints! This shock is as good as any other I have ever used. It works great for spring opening ! I only need to use one bag in the spring to open my pool and then one bag approximately every week to maintain crystal clear water! Excellent Shock for the price!

      Works as promised. Quick Ship. Works as described.

      Amazing Customer Service
      We ordered this product with some chlorine and shock. We received the chlorine and shock but also received a Magic Jack Tile stain gel instead of this Super Stain product. Called 800 number and explained what happened. As it turns out, they didn't recognize the product we received. Took a picture and emailed it while on the phone. They couldn't find it in their system. So, they sent us the correct product and we kept the wrong product also. I'm sure we can find a use for it. Can't say we've ... read more used this bottle of Super Stain yet, but in the past it has been perfect for our well water and I expect it will be again.

      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.

      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.
    1. 6 months ago
      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.

      It worked on my fiberglass pool!
      So far so good, I get horrible mineral stains (probably copper) in my pool and have tried many products, some that involve "Sequestering the minerals" but it always seems to come back and often all at once in a big splotch. This product seems to have worked just fine, what a difference. Love my fiberglass pool, don't even need algaecide and very low chemical cost.. I think I found my stain remover of the future, if I ever need it again.

      Battled fiberglass pool wall mineral stains.....
      Tried Culators, Metal Free, ITS Stain Free, Stain Away powders, etc. then saw a Jacks Blue Magic customer post of similar returning *severe rust-colored* wall stains after few days, mine when chlorination for years and on well water in fiberglass pool. Locals and Internet instructed full pool water drain at $1400 too expensive. So after 2.5 bottles of Jacks Blue magic & BULK citric acid powder combo water & walls clear. Regular treatments of Jacks Blue Magic and light chlorination with ... read more chlorine tabs seem to be effective and persist for a couple weeks now, hope it continues. Be careful fiberglass pool owners use only algaecide 60 plus (no copper), avoid RV antifreeze for line winterization (use legitimate pool antifreeze) due to chemical residue buildup that causes high chlorine consumption and manufacturer says will not subside concentration, and any other copper/mineral products. Will continue to use Jacks Blue Magic as it is only product along with bulk citric acid that has longer lasting stain removal...so far. Citric acid is active ingredient in most anti-stain cleaning powders. Trying small amounts of liquid chlorine now only when needed, hope it doesn't cause re-staining.

    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.
