METAL, STAIN, AND SCALE REMOVERS
Protect your pool surfaces
From time to time metals, copper or iron, can be present in pool water and cause unsightly staining. The source of the metal can usually be traced to either the water used to fill the pool; some bores have metal contamination, or a metal object having been dropped into the pool. Products are available that can remove existing stains and remove the metal from the water. If the metal cannot be removed from the fill water then chemicals can be added to the pool to stop staining from occurring.
Scaling, the deposition of calcium from the water onto the pool surfaces, occurs when there is one or more of the following: high calcium hardness, high pH levels or elevated temperatures. It is unsightly and not good for the pool surface. Products are available that can remove this scale and can be used to prevent future scaling in pools where these conditions are likely to prevail, eg salt water pools with high pH (will also reduce scaling on salt cell plates).
