    Stain Chemicals

    1. 8 years ago
      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.

      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.

      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.

      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

      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.

      great product
      I have been searching for a product that is easy to use to remove the light brown stains that creep up the sides of my fiberglass pool. this is the most effective method that does not wipe out my chlorine. It is definitely worth a try.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

    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.
