CuLator PowerPak 1.0 is great for maintaining a metal-free pool. Each PowerPak removes and eliminates 1.0 ppm total dissolved stain-causing metals from 20,000 gallons. The goal is to have 0.0 dissolved metals in your pool water to prevent staining and pool water from turning green or brown. For best results keep a PowerPak 1.0 in your skimmer and change monthly to help prevent metal stains.
Place in skimmer basket only.
When should I use the CuLator 1.0 vs the Ultra 4.0? I have a 30,000 gallon pool. Thank you.
Hi, David. The CuLator Ultra PowerPak 4.0 is perfect for pools that have a lot of metals, larger pools, pools on well water, and commercial pools and the CuLator PowerPak 1.0 is great for maintaining a metal-free pool.

I have a 23,000 gallon gunite pool with a salt chlorine generator. Earlier this summer, I had an algae outbreak after my generator stopped working. I used some copper algaecide to kill the copper, but ended up with too much copper in my water.
It tested at .5 ppm. My iron tested at .2 ppm. I found out that .3 ppm is when staining can happen. So, I got nervous and bought some sequestering agent (Aqua Briliance) and this CuLator 1.0.
I placed the CuLator into the skimmer basket and left it for a few days. After about 3 days I pulled it out and looked at it with the sun behind it. Sure enough, it was light blue inside the bag. The instructions said that meant it was copper. I was very excited.
I left the bag in for 1 month and then left it in for another just to make sure all the metals were gone. When I had my water tested I made sure it was a total metal test and this time both the copper and iron were gone! I couldn't believe it and my water looked perfect. I was curious about where my iron was coming from and so I did some research and found out that iron comes from the salt itself.
Over time, it builds up in the water. I also have some travertine around my pool and iron comes out of that and gets into the pool. So, I am keeping a fresh CuLator in my pool all the time now. I'm even thinking about trying out the CuLator Ultra 4.0 next season.
