    Help, need sequestrant recomendations - new plaster

    We just had our pool remodeled with new tile and plaster/pebble (Wet Edge Pearl Matrix). Wet Edge recommends Jack's Magic Blue as the sequesterant agent, but I can't find it locally. Does anyone have a recommendation on a comparable product I could find at a local shop or should order Jack's to arrive on Monday or Tuesday? The pool will be full sometime tomorrow afternoon. Thanks!

    HTH's will work just fine. You'll just need a little more of it.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I've been calling the local Wal-Mart, Ace Hardware, etc., trying to find HTH Metal Control, but so far no go. I may be stuck ordering something online and overnighting it for Tuesday... My only concern is I do have a fair amount of copper plumbing in the original equipment that will remain for the next month or two. At least it's not bright white plaster.

    Back to OP's question......Why do you have the need for a sequestrant. Do you know you fill water has metal content?
