Metal Staining 101 with Joe Laurino of CuLator Metal Stain Eliminator and Stain Preventer:

The first step with any type of staining is to determine if it is an organic or non-organic stain. Organic stains can look a lot like a metal stain so you will need to test the area to see if the stain lifts with a vitamin C tablet as Joe suggests. If it is a metal stain then you will have to follow some simple steps to remove it and remove the metal ions from the pool water.

Here is more about the treatment and the kit includes everything you will need:
“Most pool stain treatments only include a stain treatment and metal sequestering agent. Well, that is not enough to stop the cycle of swimming pool staining. To complete the pool stain treatment process, you MUST use CuLator to ELIMINATE the metals from the water, or your stains and discoloration will return. Stain removers work to take the stains off the surface of your pool. Sequestering agents suspend the metals in water. ONLY CuLator Metal Eliminator eliminates the metals that cause the stains on your pool and spa surface.

About CuLator:
“CuLator is a patented polymer contained in a little bag which, when placed into the skimmer basket or the pump basket, grabs and binds stain-causing metals out of the water to prevent pool surface staining and water discoloration. CuLator eliminates stain-causing metals like iron, rust, copper, and manganese. CuLator is manufactured by Periodic Products Inc. in the USA.

CuLator® Metal Eliminator and Stain Preventer is a patented technologically advanced product designed to rapidly eliminate metals from fresh and saltwater. CuLator takes conventional chelating or sequestering agent groups and binds them to a unique, insoluble, and non-toxic polymer backbone. This allows metals to be physically removed and eliminated from the pool, spa, or fountain water, rather than temporarily sequestering metals in the water. The chemistry to produce these polymers was developed over 25 years of scientific research. So, what does all that mean? CuLator does not dissolve in pool water, grabs metals out of the water and off sequestering agents, and keeps them locked inside the bag so that you can ELIMINATE the metals from your pool and spa! When metals are removed from pool and spa water, staining and water turning colors are prevented.”
