    TFP Metal Treatment Reccomendation

    I have looked through the forum and I can't find a reccomended TFP method to treat metals, just a bunch of discussions.

    My pool store has the following two products:
    Metal Free by Natural Chemistry
    Metal Klear by SeaKlear (now owned by Natural chemistry)

    I also found this product that claims to remove the metals:

    The Copper test kit is not that expensive, but the Iron test kit is a bit expensive. The Pool store by me has strips that show both. Should I find a pool store that has the better test kit?
    21' x 28" Grecian Vinyl Pool with fiberglass steps (@17k gallons) with Pentair SuperfloVS, Hayward sand filter with Zeosand, and Hayward gas heater. Pentair EasyTouch 4PSC-IC40 (Pentair IC40 SWG), and Screen Logic interface. 2 skimmers with main drain on the intake side and two primary returns with two low flow bubbler returns at the stairs. Aquabot pool cleaner. TF-100 Test kit.

    Re: TFP Metal Treatment Reccomendation

    Treating metals is pretty complex and varies by pool, source of metals and type of metals. We typically recommend letting the Pool Store test for metals. One problem is that metal tests test the water for metals. So, if the metals are in a stain or bound up in sequestrant then the test will show 0 even though metal is present.

    The most important thing is to find the source of the metal and eliminate it, if possible.

    CUlator seems to work but there isn't enough data to say how much copper it will actually remove and it is fairly expensive.

    There are a few folks around who can help. And there are lots of old threads by people trying to deal with metals.
