    Stain Chemicals

      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.

      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!!

      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

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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 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.

      Super Stain Away Is The Bomb!!
      I called customer service as I had these brown stains in my above ground pool. It would not scrub off and I was wearing myself out!!!The rep told me it sounded like metal stain and to try the Stain Away. I did and let me tell you this product is the bomb!! If you have a pool with this issue call- - In The Swim!! They have really helped me with my problems concerning pool care. Thank You In The Swim and the rep that recommended it!!

      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.

      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.

      Not quite there
      We used this product in our 20 x 40 i ground pool but it only took out about 60 or 70% of the stains. Perhaps I didn’t mix it enough but I’m pretty sure we had the PH & Chrorine at the right levels for putting this cleaner in. We’re probably going to give it another try...

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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 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.

    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.
