    Sequestering agent?

    GLB Pool & Spa Products 71018 Sequa-Sol 1-Gallon Sequestering Agent

    Is this stuff any good? I usually use Jacks purple stuff but this product is a lot cheaper. I have a fiberglass pool w/ SWG

    I don't know about that product, but we usually recommend Jack's as one of the preferred metal treatments because they are reliable, and they give some pretty good customer support as well.

    Don't have any direct experience with this but here is an article in Pool School - Metals in the Water and Metal Stains that should be helpful.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Ok thanks.....I'll stick w/ Jacks. By the way after doing a AA treatment this weekend the stains are COMPLETELY gone. Looks like it did when I had it installed. So glad I'm a member of this site, my friends at work refuse to believe me when I tell them I use Borax/ bake soda n bleach to balance my pool water. People are so attached to pool store chemicals they won't trust anything else. Shame
