Removes unsightly organic stains from fibreglass, vinyl, concrete, pebblecrete and most pool & spa surfaces including discolouration from most minerals including Iron, Copper, Manganese & Calcium.
Active Constituents: 660g/Kg Citric Acid. 340g/Kg Chelating Agent.
Staining commonly occurs on pool and spa surfaces over time as dissolved minerals precipitate out of solution in the presence of high pH levels or reactions with excess chlorine oxidiser. Organic matter such as dead blackspot algae, leaves and debris can also mark pool surfaces and be hardened by alkaline minerals such as calcium. Our DIY STAIN REMOVAL TREATMENT with our latest product SERIOUSTAIN (TM) REMOVER, dissolves all mineral deposits with a blend of organic citric acid and a powerful chelating agent to remove and complex (lock-up) freely dissolved minerals into a soluble form to prevent re-occurrence of staining after treatment.
STEP 1 Stop swimming and adjust the pH to neutral 7.0 then backwash or clean the pool filter and then turn the pool pump off. Remove all plastic parts including pool covers, hoses, automatic pool cleaners, etc. Allow the free chlorine to drop to zero before treatment for best results.
STEP 2 For recent stains in swimming pools, add 250 g of SERIOUSTAIN (TM) REMOVER per 10,000 litres of water dissolved in 10 litres of water and pour around edges. In spas add 100g per 2,000 litres. Brush the walls and floor and after 24 hours if the stains have faded restore the pH to 7.2 with a similar quantity of sodium bicarbonate. If staining persists after 24 hours go to step three before restoring the pH.
STEP 3 For severe or old stains in swimming pools, add 500 g of SERIOUSTAIN (TM) REMOVER per 10,000 litres of water dissolved in 10 litres of water and pour around edges. Additional hydrochloric acid may be added to further lower the pH and shift more stubborn alkaline deposits (refer Precautions below). Vinyl lined pools add 500mls per 10,000 litres, fibreglass pools add 1000 ml per 10,000 litres, concrete pools add 2000 ml per 10,000 litres of pool water. For painted concrete pools in good condition, use the dose as for fibreglass.
STEP 4 Once all stains have faded, turn on pump and filter and add 2 Kg doses of sodium bicarbonate morning and night, testing the pH between applications until the pH is restored to the ideal 7.2. As a guide, around 1 Kg of sodium bicarbonate is required for every 1 Kg of SERIOUSTAIN (TM) REMOVER or hydrochloric acid used in the treatment.
STEP 5 After the above treatment for mineral staining, it is good practice to dump a third of the pool water and replace with fresh fill water, which dilutes the mineral loading of the pool water by one third. Always add one bottle of POOL STAIN INHIBITOR to chemically complex remaining minerals in solution and prevent stains returning.
STEP 6 Restore the free chlorine level to 1.5 ppm and maintain the pH in the correct 7.2 to 7.6 range by testing the water weekly which is vital to ensuring the effectiveness of all pool chemicals, especially chlorine as a sanitiser. We recommend the use of liquid chlorine or a salt water chlorinator to sanitise pool water as calcium based chlorine builds excess hardness and causes cloudy water. Use only sodium bicarbonate to increase pH in swimming pools and spas as sodium carbonate (soda ash) is too alkaline and does not buffer pH. Add our POOL STAIN INHIBITOR once a season to neutralise future mineral staining before it occurs.

You guys are AWESOME!! I placed my order with you on Sunday March 31 and it arrived in Arizona, United States on April 4th! That is faster than I could have received the shipment if I would have ordered in my same state! The new salt cell was packaged perfectly and was exactly what I ordered!
Thank you so much

Just wanted to say 'thank you' for the great service fron DPS. Aust Post delivered the cell 20 mins ago and I am about to instal it. The delivery man even beat the tracking email!!
I find that quite amazing for it to get from Cardiff to Brisbane in less than 24 hrs when an Overnignt Express envelope to my office in Sydney CBD can take up to 3 days!!

Got back finally on Friday night and just wanted to thank you and your team for your help and excellent service.
I was greeted at the hotel by ‘We have a parcel for you Mr Cave’ before I had even signed in!
Just waiting for the temperature here to rise a bit to get the pool back working…enjoy your winter!

Thank you so much for our Zodiac V3 Robotic Pool Cleaner.
It arrived really quickly and although I was hesitant to spend so much money on a pool cleaner I couldn’t be happier with the product, I have a lot of trees around my pool and the filter/vacuum never seems to get enough suction to do a good job. My pool is the cleanest it’s ever been and so little effort from me!
I would highly recommend this product to anyone!

I am not usually a "shop on line" person, but heard your advertising on 2NUR FM and decided to look at your web site.
The whole experience was so simple and easy, I would recommend Direct Pool Supplies to everyone.
I ordered a Daisy Pool Cover on Thursday afternoon, and it arrived by Courier on Tuesday Morning.
I am certainly a very happy customer. Thank you

Thank you for shipping the package to Hawaii for my solar heating. I received it today. I am sure I am not the only one who might need a repair similar to mine.
You could or should market your Repair Parts, through a "Craig's list" or other practical venue

As discussed with you, I am attaching the requested photos of the pool timer that arrived broken in 2 places.
As we are unable to use this timer I would very much appreciate it if you could please replace it at your earliest convenience...
Hi. Just letting you know that we have received the new timer. Thank you very much
Thank you so much for the speedy response to my return of the pool cleaner.

This is fantastic, the steps arrived this morning.
Impressed with the service and speed will definitely be using your company again and recommending it to others.
The order arrived yesterday, oustanding service on your companies behalf.
I will recommend you guys to anyone needing pool equipment.
Thanks for your patience and help.
Receiving the P100 Chlorinator Cell on Valentine's day beats the chocolates and flowers my husband bought me this morning, but don't tell him that! The biggest hugest thankyou for your prompt correspondence and to all the automatic tracking notifications from Australia Post. It was such an easy pleasant transaction. Cell is already installed (by me) and working like a dream. I will certainly recommend you to friends. As mentioned earlier we had purchased online from another supplier 3 weeks ago and each time the promises were broken. I suppose that's what you get with a cheap website, cheap service! You guys are like diamonds, rich and rare. Again, many thanks and I will certainly visit your website again.
Just want to thank you for such an amazing job you have done in sending the pool items to us -----!! I have never received something so quickly.
Anil & Karen Gonsalves
I must admit, your customer service is exceptional..
I have already spoken to a few people about ordering from you guys. Cheers
