| Question: I purchased CuLator Ultra 4.0 and it’s been in my pool for 1 week. It is starting to leak and very puffy. Is this normal?
Should I remove it from the skimmer already?
It is bluish green in color. Please see picture. P.T.
That is perfectly normal! And the color means it is pulling out copper and possibly some iron out of your pool water. Often, in the manufacturing process, some of the polymers get onto the outside of the bag. It will look like it is leaking, but it isn’t (unless there is a tear in the bag).
So, I would inspect the bag for rips and if there is nothing, then don’t worry about the product because it is working perfectly. By the way, if the gel substance comes off the bag, it will get caught on the filter and keep working until you rinse the filter off. And, the product is non-toxic.
If you are concerned, just take the CuLator out and rinse it in fresh water and place it back into your skimmer.
