    Sequesterant question

    Hi...Just treated my vinyl liner pool for iron stains with Jack's Magic products. Just over a week later the stains are returning. Locally, nobody sells Jack's products... I have more Purple Stuff on order but don't want it to get worse...can I use the sequesterant from Leslie's in a pinch while I wait for the Jack's? Thanks.

    Yes, you can. I don't blame you for wanting to use something.

    Go to walmart and buy the HTH metal out. It's the same stuff for about $10 a bottle instead of $20. I used Jack's for awhile but found the HTH works the same.

    Thanks for the tip. Would you know if Jack's Sequest test kit will work with the HTH product? I imagine there should be no problem if it is the same stuff , right?
