    Stain Chemicals

      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.

      Great Product
      We had a large stain in the middle of are 15X30 above ground pool, Tried many products, and they did not remove the stain, after two treatments of super stain away the stain is gone, thought we might have to replace the liner, but thanks to this product the stain is gone.

      Excellent
      I've maintained a backyard vinyl pool for over 40 years. Five years ago we had to drill a new well and that is when our metal stains started. I've constantly fought this problem since and even resorted to paying for water to be hauled in. I tried this product and it worked immediately. I've tried many other products and this is the only one that works for my pool.

      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.

      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!

      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.

      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 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.

      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.

      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!!

      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.

      Works pretty well
      Had stains on my above ground pool liner that went around the whole pool and it came from winter closing, this season was the 2nd time it happened and they were now a lot darker. Had the pool for 4 years prior and no problem - tried the magic eraser - didn't work. Did as was instructed on the bottle and let it sit in the pool for 24 hours and the stains have virtually disappeared. I would say it got rid of 98% of the stains (all are lighter or gone). The only con I can see is it seems to be acid ... read more based so you need to lower the PH which could pose a problem on some pool components along with having almost no chlorine but for the short duration it probably isn't too much of a concern.

      Worked for me!
      This seems to have worked pretty well for me. Used it a couple of times over the past years. I refill my pool with our well water which has a lot of iron in it. I get stains on my pool bottom and sides. When used as directed on product, this removed nearly all of my stains on my 10 year old fiberglass pool. Package recommends use of metal remover after use of this product. Buy them both at the same time.

      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.

      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.

      Great Product
      The Blue Stuff works great. Had yellow stains on the bottom in the deep end , used this as directed and by morning stains were gone.

      Works Fantastic
      We have very hard well water and this product removed all the iron stains within a few days. Made our liner look new again. I always have a bottle to use during startup each year and never had a stain since using this.

      Great for well water
      My well water has high iron content and can oxidize with the shock turning the pool shades of green. This product works great to clear up the water, usually overnight. Much more effective then the MetalOut sold at my local pool supply.

      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.

    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.
