    MetalFree

    So metal-free is a sequestrant, yes? It keeps the metals suspended in the water?

    Yes, Metal Free is a sequestrant, but it is not one of the ones we recommend using. Sequestrants based on HEDP, phosphonic acid, or phosphonic acid derivatives are far most effective. ProTeam's Metal Magic and Jack's Magic The Pink Stuff (regular), The Blue Stuff (fresh plaster), and The Purple Stuff (salt) are some of the top sequestrants. You can also find many other brands with similar active ingredients, some of which are noticeably less expensive.

    Ok, I have 3 bottles of this that were given to me. This will work as a sequestrant you think after I use ascorbic acid to remove metal stains??

    Yes, Blue Wave Super Rust and Scale Remover is a phosphonic acid based product, and should be effective.
