Copper Sequestering Agent

Copper Sequestering Agent

A copper sequestering agent is a chemical that binds to copper ions in pool water, preventing them from forming scale or staining pool surfaces. Copper can enter pool water from a variety of sources, including well water, copper piping, and even sunscreen. When copper levels in pool water get too high, it can cause a variety of problems, including:

  • Scale buildup on pool surfaces
  • Staining of pool surfaces
  • Eye irritation
  • Skin irritation
  • Stomach upset

Copper sequestering agents can help to prevent these problems by binding to copper ions and keeping them in solution. This prevents them from forming scale or staining pool surfaces. Copper sequestering agents are available in a variety of forms, including liquid, powder, and granular. They can be added to pool water manually or through a pool’s circulation system.

It is important to note that copper sequestering agents are not a cure-all for high copper levels in pool water. If copper levels are too high, it may be necessary to drain and refill the pool. Copper sequestering agents should only be used as directed by the product label.

Here are some tips for using copper sequestering agents in your pool:

  • Test your pool water regularly to ensure that copper levels are within the recommended range.
  • Add copper sequestering agent to your pool water as directed by the product label.
  • Monitor your pool water after adding copper sequestering agent to ensure that copper levels remain within the recommended range.
  • If you have any questions or concerns about using copper sequestering agents, consult with a pool professional.

By following these tips, you can help to keep your pool water safe and enjoyable for everyone.
