    Yellowish type stains around my pool drain

    It almost looks like sand but vacuum doesnt get it nor if i brush it. Is there a stain remover or some product I can buy for the pool that will help me remove this stain?

    It depends on what they are. I would first try placing a Tri-Chlor puck on the stain for a few minutes and see what happens. Do that first, and let us know what you find.

    I don't have any pucks, I use liquid bleach for chlorine

    You can buy a small pack of one or two pucks at Lowes or probably Leslies.

    Could you post a set of test results? And do the puck test.
