    I have An Intex SWG - Sequestering question

    I read in some other threads tonight that I should unplug the copper bars on the Intex SWG. I will do that tomorrow. Since I use Jack's Magic in my pool anyway, is it sequestering what copper is in there along with the iron from the well water?

    Jack's has products that will sequester both. Which one are you using?

    Purple Stuff. I may be worried about nothing though. My youngest is very blonde and has missed maybe 2 days in the pool since I opened it 3 weeks ago. She hasn't had any hair color problems.

    The purple stuff should sequester both, and you got a good indicator in your daughter's hair

    I believe the intex only produces copper when the boost button is pushed.

    That's good to know. I unplugged it anyway. I don't think I've ever used the boost button anyway.

    Good idea, then if we/I am wrong and it were to produce at other times, you have protection against that too.
