Metal Trap -Does it Work?

I continue to have trouble with iron stains on the surface of my fiberglass pool. I can remove the stains with Stain Free and follow up with Metal Away. The problem is the staining returns a few days/weeks later and I start all over again. I read about a product called Mretal Trap. It filters metals out of the water. Has anyone used this product ? If so, does it work?

Thanks for your help!!

I believe it's designed to remove metals as you fill the pool. I've not seen any reports from users that have tried it yet.

I've read about the metal trap on the web. I might consider buying it next year, it's kinda pricey, but if it works it's totally worth it. Sorry, I'm not much help. I'd be interested to hear anyone's reviews on it as well. We are currently trying to open our pool and we get our water from a well with high iron content.
