    Stain Chemicals

    1. 1 decade ago
      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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

      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.

      Really works!!!
      My pool walls and bottom was stained brown and went to the local pool store and they sold me 106.00 worth of chemicals that didn't work. Ordered super stain away and it worked overnight. Amazing stuff!! Saved my summer. Thought I was done swimming for the rest of the summer. Was ready to close my pool.

      Great Stuff
      I could not get any help from my local pool company to get rid of the stains I had, my pool had the worse stains I had ever seen. I knew is was an organic stain as a crushed C tab did not remove the stain but the chlorine tab did. I bought this for my above ground vinyl lined pool and added it to the water by pouring it around the pool. Later that night I checked it and the stain was still there so I thought I had wasted my money. The next morning when I got up the stain was all gone and my pool ... read more looked new again. Great stuff and now I'm going to get the stain away and keep my pool treated every week.

      A+ Stain Remover
      With some (/much) trepidation, I purchased two (2) containers ($80.00) of the A+ Stain Remover as I was advised thru INTHESWIM that one (1) container only treated 10,000 gals. My inground 22,500 gal pool has shown a 'brown strain' for two (2) years now. Portions of the vinyl liner showed unaffected stained areas where worms had laid but 99% of the liner, showed a "deep brown stain' that was unaffected by all chemical or even high chlorine levels. The vinyl liner was only three (3) years old and ... read more after the first winter showed the 'brown strain'. The pool chemistry was 'perfect' but the stain remained. Today, I received the A+ Stain Remover (only after ordering it the day before) and immediately sprinkled it on the lower steps and in the shallow end of my pool. Within 3 minutes it was noticeable the A+ Stain Remover was lighting the brown stain. Enthusiastically I sprinkled both containers thruout the entire pool and let the pump run. Within two (2) hours the entire pool brown stain was removed or (neutralized) and my liner looks like NEW. THIS product worked for me and was worth the 'expensive' price and finally solved my strain problem that NO other product or service could solve.

      Miracle product
      I was extremely skeptical of this product but I had really ugly stains on the bottom of my fiberglass in the ground pool. Really in the scheme of things 88 dollars is a small price to pay for the removal of those ugly stains. My pool is 12,000 gallons , so it took 2 jars of A-1 stain remover. I put the first on in and left it over night. The stain was very light but still visible, so I put in the other jar and let it do it's thing over night. The next day the water was very cloudy and you could ... read more not see the bottom. The next morning the water was clear and every stain in my pool was GONE. The pool now look's brand new. This stuff work's great !!!! You will not be disappointed.. You will probably need a chlorine neutralizer to get your chlorine level down to 0,3 but after the level is down, the product work's GREAT !!!!

      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.

      For sure Magic stuff!
      I bought this product because we have a lot of iron in our water and I did not realize the affects that has on a pool. I did not know the brand just picked it out. First of all it was priced well based on my search and it worked within a few days the difference was amazing. We converted to a salt water pool - above ground and with the use of this product our pool is the clearest it has ever been. About to re-order for maintenance use now. very pleased.

      It's crystal clear which clarifier is the best
      I spent less on clarifiers, but this one is worth it's weight in gold. It works like a gem (Sapphire). Water temperature and/or water ph doesn't seem to affect the workability of this product. Hands down the best clarifier.

      This Product Rocks!
      Sapphire blows the competition out of the water!!!

      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.

      I live in Southeast Texas and in fortunatel got Flood waters in my house and in my pool. It was so dirty couldn't see bottom. After cleaning pool out best I could the walls and bottom had turned green. After about $150 worth of chemicals and a lot of time tried EZ stain remover. After getting the pH of the water correct added this product and to my amazement my pool is now green free nice and clean.

      This stuff works!
      I had rust stains in my pool after opening up the pool this spring. This product cleaned the stains quickly and completely. I poured some directly over the bad areas and the rust stains dissolved like magic. I was impressed with this stain remover. I will be buying more to have on hand.

    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.
