Pool Start-Up Kit for a Metal-Free and Stain-Free Pool

What’s the Secret?

The secret behind CuLator is the patented Chelok® Polymer Technology. These polymers have the unique ability to bind metals out of water. Unlike sequestering agents, CuLator does not release the bound metals back into the water.  Sequestering agents have a limited life and break down, often adding phosphates to swimming pool water. CuLator uses no phosphates and does not dissolve in the pool water.

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 metals from your pool or spa water.  The CuLator Ultar 4.0 works very well for large pools, pools with staining issues, 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!

Because the CuLator polymers change color depending on the metal, every package of CuLator includes a color chart to identify which metals have been removed from the pool water.  Just hold a used bag of CuLator up to the light and look through the bag to see color.  If there is a slight yellow color, then you have removed iron.  If there is a slight blue color, then you have removed copper.  Not all metals show color change, but most do.
