    Stain Chemicals

    1. 3 years ago
      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

      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.

      Crystal Clear Over Night! Kills everything!
      This shock works great. It dissolves in the water before even hitting the liner of my pool, even in the shallow end. The shock power is intense. I use shock on a regular basis to keep my pool clean, but when I get some cloudiness, or have a lot of people in, I use one to two bags after, and my pool is crystal clear within hours. The next day...you wouldn't even know it's been used.

      Good standard strength pool shock, great price!
      I have a 15,000 gallon pool so need to use 2 of these bags each time, but even at that the price was better than I could do locally and it saved me a trip to the pool store. There's not much more to say about a bag of chlorine shock - it is what it is advertised to be.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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...

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      I'm a believer
      I was hesitant to buy this stuff,because of the size of my pool ,I needed 2 bottles....80+ bucks(after tax etc.).It was only after reading someone elses testimonial about A+,that I gave it a try.My pool also had lingering brown stains,that had resisted multiple treatments of metal out,stain remover,algaecide,manual scrubbing,and other pool treatments.I opened those bottles and hesitantly poured the powder in around the sides of my pool,and turned the pump on,it was getting dark so I couldn't see ... read more the results that night,and I took off for work next morning.I got a call at work ,from my wife,so excited that the brown stains were gone!..Thanks A+,and thanks to the guy who wrote the review that gave me the encouragement to try it.After all the money I had spent already in trying to get the stains out ,I wish I had tried it first!and no scrubbing!!

      This product works very well!
      I have had an ongoing problem with staining on my steps. After removing the stains with Stain Free, I dropped the Culator in the basket as directed, and have had no more staining now for three weeks so far....a first!

    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.
