Customer Reviews of CuLator® Metal Eliminator and Stain Preventer for Pools and Spas
We have a test tank of about 2000 gallons our copper levels are really high 22.4 ppm. What can you recommend that will help us eliminate copper from out test water. F. R. Electro-Mechanical Technician CA
I would recommend using one or two Ultra PowerPak 4.0 treatments. Use them at the same time for a quicker response. Does your tank have a surge tank or skimmer? If not, you can still place the CuLator into the tank using a wire tire through the loop at the top of our GatorEgg. The CuLator will pull out the copper pretty quickly depending on the flow rate. D. M. Periodic Products FL
After running for about 19 hour our copper levels are to a readable level of 5.2ppm. CuLator is pretty impressive and the easy disposal can’t beat that. Today, the levels were at 2.5ppm. F. R. Electro-Mechanical Technician CA

Got a wonderful response for your product at Aquafina in New Port Richie. We tested a pool with major metals and your product worked with flying colors. Thanks again for giving me the opportunity to try it out. Look forward to hearing from you Robanne.

We have had excellent results for over two years using your CuLator product. We have a customer that lives close to a lake and we were constantly battling manganese staining and had not found any product to remove them. We replastered the pool and have used the culator every month since and NO STAINS! It is so easy to use and it really works!!!! We would recommend this product to any customer fighting stains!

I am the owner of Your Pool, inc. in Hummelstown, PA. We have been using CuLator Metal Eliminator in our commercial account pools for the past two months. After applying the appropriate stain removal chemicals to remove any stains from the swimming pool finish your product has removed the metals from the water as claimed. See photos. In addition to the improved aesthetic appeal of the swimming pool surface the CuLator has also made it easier to maintain a more balanced water profile. The CuLator does not have a negative impact on the pH and has not depleted any free sanitizer levels as is experienced with some other sequestering products. By eliminating the metals in the swimming pool water the CuLator has allowed us to reduce the ORP set points on our chemical controllers as much as 100 mv.

Dave, I called your office today to ask about the new CuLator products. Here are some pictures from some of my hotels customers.

The Pool has been fairly stable this year. Two things we really focussed on was the water source for filling up (municipal vs well) anf maintaining a very tight ph balance.
Attached is a picture of a bag I just pulled out of our skimmer - it's blue. The iron content is marginal at best and has been under control. We have pulled these bags out with a redish tint to them as well (Not orange, but visibily red).
Pool is still open and 88F. Next weekend is the last hurrah for it and it will be closed down on 10/17.
Our pool was winterized today. We had copper issues. CuLator definitely improved the overall "health" and maintenance of the pool. I would definitely recommend your product. I even showed it to our local pool supplies store.

Thanks for the follow up. I have been using it since it arrived over a week ago and it seems to be performing well. I’m tempted to go ahead and change it out after two weeks and then go to a month. There is still some stain on the pool, but far less than previously. I have treated the pool for some of the residual metal in the water (green—not algae water). The pH is staying right around 7.
Thanks for your help.

My name is D. I am the service manager for Royal Pool and Spa in White Bear Lake, Minnesota. Iron is a big issue in our area. Many of the pools that we service show brown stains from all the iron. We’ve been battling this issue for years. Since using CuLator earlier this year, the brown stains have not come back after shocking the pools. I throw one bag in each skimmer basket and change monthly; it’s pretty easy to use. We not only use CuLator in our service program, but also sell it right on the counter in our store. It is good stuff.

Poolside has been in business since 1964 in St. Paul, Minnesota. I’ve seen many products that claim to remove metals from water, but nothing has worked as effectively as CuLator to actually physically pull the metals out of solution. Our customers keep coming back for it. I think it is the ease of use and no harsh chemicals that our customers like; and of course it works. I’m a believer! I’ll be ordering some Winter Closer soon to recommend that as the last step before they close their pool. Thank you!

Rising Sun Pools has been serving our loyal customers in Raleigh, N.C. for almost 40 years. Our part of the country has great issues with metals staining pools, especially iron in well water. After using CuLator Metal Remover and Stain Preventer, we saw amazing results in preventing metal stains. We like that it is a non-toxic product that is easy to use. CuLator is now part of the stain prevention plan that we suggest to our customers.

Subject: I Am Impressed !!
My name is A.B., I am the person who does all the purchasing of the pool products at our branch and for our two twig branches. One is in Port Charlotte, Fl and one in Bradenton, FL.
I have to tell you. Your folks stopped by a while back and left me some samples of your Culator metal remover bags. Well, I used them on my pool, which is 22 years old, and I could not believe what the product did. I usually had to use Jack’s Magic or United Chem Super Stain Treat every few months to remove the iron and metals stains from my pool. I knew it only suspended the metals in the pool water when I used it, but it kept my wife happy! If you know what I mean!!
I had a solar cover on my pool for about 2 months and usually when I remove it for the season my pool is always stained all over. This time there were virtually no stains in it.
If it is possible could you send me some samples. I want to give some to some of my pool service companies to try. I really feel if I can get them to use them on some of their stained pools they would be really surprised how well it works.
