I'm new here and have been reading all posts. Unfortunately I live in canada and can't find half the products you guys use just the local pool store branded products. My pool salesman is pushing me to use stainfree, but from what I read on the site it is no longer ascorbic acid being used but citric acid. So here is my question I have vitamin C, if I grind a pound of it would that work? would the filler additives they put in the tablets cause issues? I tried citric acid, drained 3/4 of my pool, but the stains came back but 50% lighter than before.
One other issue I have is my PH is at 8.1 and will not drop even after 4 kg of ph down. My TA is at 100
My free chlorine is at 0 and I added a polyquat algeacide.
My pool water has a slight green tint
Thank you all
