CuLator® Metal Eliminator

CuLator® Metal Eliminator and Stain Preventer is the only way to remove stain-causing metals from pool and spa water and prevent the stains they cause.

CuLator Metal Eliminator removes stain-causing metals like rust, iron, copper, manganese, cobalt, and lead from swimming pool and spa water. These metals stain pool and spa surfaces, hardware, and turn water green, brown, purple, or black.

CuLator is non-toxic and easy to use.

What’s the Secret?

The power of CuLator is in our patented Chelok® Polymer Technology. These polymers have
the unique ability to permanently bind metals so they can be removed from water. Unlike
sequestering agents, CuLator does not break down and release removed metals or phosphates
back into the water. CuLator is phosphate-free, non-toxic, and does not dissolve in pool or spa

CuLator is Easy to Use!

Just place a CuLator PowerPak 1.0 into your skimmer basket, or an Ultra 4.0 into your pump basket and let CuLator start binding stain-causing metals from your pool or spa water.  The CuLator Ultra 4.0 works very well for large pools, pools with high metal levels, pools with staining, during a start-up or fire-up, and for maintaining a metal-free pool for the entire summer season.  When placed into the pump basket, the contents of the bag will swell to fill the protective GatorEgg.

CuLator Changes Colors Showing the Removed Metals!

Every package of CuLator includes a color chart to identify which metals have been removed from the pool water. Simply hold a used bag of CuLator up to the light and look through the bag to note the color. CuLator polymers change color depending on the metal – so, for example, if you see a slight yellow color, you have removed iron; if it’s a slight blue color, then copper has been removed.
