DescriptionCuLator® is the world’s only true metal eliminator. CuLator’s® insoluble chelating polymers take conventional chelating groups and bind them to a novel, unique, insoluble, non-toxic polymer backbone. This allows for the permanent elimination of the metal from the water rather than simply sequestering the metals in the water. Conventional sequestering agents surround the metal ions and slow down the oxidation and precipitation of the metal oxides onto the pool surface, but don’t actually remove the metals from the water. These agents break down over time and need to be constantly added. Many of these agents are phosphate-based. CuLator® was developed for the Environmental Protection Agency’s Superfund Program. These insoluble chelating polymers are the only compounds that are insoluble in water, rapidly bind metal ions, and are non-toxic. The chemistry to produce these insoluble chelating polymers was developed over 23 years. And, CuLator contains NO PHOSPHATES! Back to Top
InstallationProper dosages are dependent upon the level of metal ions in the pool, and CuLator PowerPaks are formulated for every need. Compared to other chelation and sequestering agents, a small amount of CuLator polymer has the capacity to bind substantial amount of metal. Each PowerPak is able to bind one-third of its weight in metals, and will lower the total metal content of 20,000 gal. (75 000 L) of water as follows: one standard PowerPak, up to 1.0 ppm; one Spring Opener PowerPak, up to 1.5 ppm; one Winter Closer PowerPak, up to 1.5 ppm; and one Ultra PowerPak, up to 4.0 ppm.
- Replace the PowerPak monthly or as needed
- When a sequestering agent is used alongside CuLator, the metals are permanently transferred from the sequestering agent to the CuLator polymer and are trapped inside
- Will not remove beneficial forms of silver or copper found in mineral-based water purification systems
- Will not react with Biguanides
- Works in all freshwater and saltwater pools, spas, and fountains
