    Stain Chemicals

    1. 9 years ago
      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.

      Excellent product that works!
      Love this stain remover. I have tried so many others, and this is the only one that I will ever buy. We have a fiberglass pool, and sometimes I can just sprinkle this on a stain and it disappears instantly. Usually, I just dilute it and the whole pool cleans up quickly.I highly recommend this product to anyone who just doesn't know which stain remover to use. Simply the best on the market.

      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.

      Great products!
      Great products at a decent price. I don't like the handling fee, but still about the cheapest you can find chemicals with this quality.

      Works well
      The weather has been different than normal so I can't tell yet how well it will work over a period of time but so far I am very pleased.

      It works
      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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.

      fastanstic
      I thought I wrote a review, but after reading all of them I dont see mine. So here goes, 4 years ago I didnt cover my pool till December and stopped treating it in August (medical problems). All the leaves from all the trees and all the worms were sucked into the pool like a vacuum. When I opened my pool the following April I pulled out over 55 gallon barrell of wet leaves and worms and dead frogs and salamanders. my water looked and smelled like swamp water, you couldnt see more than a couple ... read more inches below surface. Turned on my DEL Ozone Eclipse 20 and used a total of 10 lbs of %73 calcium hypochlorite. Used a "frog log" in front of skimmer so the floating algea wouldnt clog it. I couldnt vacuum because the pump basket would get clogged with algea, it was really bad. Constantly using leaf net to get out all the stuff. I'm telling you this to let you know how bad my pool was. 6 days later my pool water was crystal clear, but you can imagine how badly stained my pool was. my pool is a light baby blue, no design - its fiberglass 14000 gallons which is all well water filled. the stains ranged from light brown (steps) to a darker brown (bottom). waited till my clhorine was 0, i did not add anything for ph, ta , or anything else yet. I always added the %73 cal hypo at night becuase didnt know what my CYA was. I poured some "A+ Stain Remover" on the steps and have a video of the stains disappearing right in front of your eyes. 2 bottles in and 24 hours later pool is crystal and gorgeous baby blue bottom, ALL ORGANIC STAINS ARE GONE. Filled autofeeder /w 3 inch tablets, corrected ph and ta, 1 cup algeacide once a week and my pool stayed gorgeous till I closed it in September. For some reason i am still gettinf leaves and worms in my pool when covered so I still get brown stains but they are barely visible, My wife cant see them. Why there are reviews that say it doesnt work I dont know, but I have given you all the information about my pool and how bad it was and this stuff works, at least on organic stains - leaves, worms and dead frogs and salamders.

      Unbelivable Results
      My pool liner had quite a bit of copper colored stains throughout my 20,000 gallon pool. It actually made the water look green in color. My liner is a blue pattern color. I was very hesitant about getting this product due to the fact that I had spent $$ on other stain removers and they did little to help remove any stains. The price of this stain remover was quite high, but I figured what do I have to lose other than $80.00 so I took a chance on this one and ordered (2) containers of this ... read more product based on other reviews. Well what happened was really an eye-opener. The results were immediate. I could not believe what I was seeing. Within 2 hours, the pool liner was totally clear of stains and my water looked blue almost immediately. Great product. Really works. Just hope it lasts all season.

      OMG!
      After reading the other reviews, I thought, "yeah, sure!", but they are true and so is my review. I have a 30000+ gallon pool so I had to buy three of the product - "ka-ching", but it was WELL worth it. I swear, after half an hour, all of the stains were gone, and my pool was badly stained. It looks like I had new vinyl installed. Truly unbelievable.

      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.

      Fabulous Stain Remover
      The product works wonders on those "iced tea" stains which can plague fiberglass pool surfaces. Begin the year with a bottle and add small maintenance doses throughout the season to keep the fiber surface clear, clean and without stains.
    3. 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.

      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

      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.

      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.

    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.
