    Stain Chemicals

    1. 4 years ago
      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.

      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.

      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.

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!!

      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.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Best product I’ve ever purchased for our pool!
      We got some yellow staining in our pool. Our local pool store told us to shock our pool as a first step. That didn’t work, we then brought in a sample every few days over the course of a month. They had me try using a chlorine tab and rubbing it on the staining (which was difficult since it was at the bottom of the deep end). They said if it rubbed away with that it would be organic staining, that didn’t work. So then I bought some very expensive metal remover and sparkle up for after for the ... read more filter. That didn’t work. Then they had me try an Algaecide remover. More $$. That didn’t work. I started googling and came across the A+ stain remover bought two bottles and the next day it was gone! So happy with this product.

      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 !!!!

      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.

      Really worked
      We had SEVERE staining on our fiberglass pool this spring. I tried other products that slightly faded the "tea stains" but the stains came right back within days. The Blue Stuff made our pool look like new! It took two applications but worth every bit. You must be patient. Give the product three or four days to get maximum benefit and then be vigilant about keeping pool chemicals balanced. We've had no stains reoccur.

      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.

      bags of 68% pool shock
      I got the 68% bags. It does a good job of raising the CL level in my pool. I'm very disappointed that there is a white powder/residue that does not dissolve and settles on the pool bottom and has to be vacuumed because it doesn't dissolve. What purpose does that white residue serve?? I didn't have that problem with Doheney's 68% pool shock. Is this why this is cheaper??
    2. 4 days ago
      Pool Shock
      I use this product regularly in my pool. Comes at a good price with fast shipping.
    3. 4 weeks ago
      It is what it is
      It's Calcium Hypochlorite, like all of the other brands of standard pool shock. It works fine, but I buy it based on price alone.

      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.
    3. 2 years ago
      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.

    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.
