    Pool Stains?!?!?!?!

    unnamed (8).jpgDoes anyone have any idea what this could be? I tried scrubbing it and it doesn't come off. I tried the Vitamin C test to see if it was a metal stain and that doesn't work either!!

    I have to ask.......did you try putting a puck on it for about 10 mins or so?

    Kim's probably talking about a 3" chlorinating puck.

    What kind of surface? Looks like vinyl and since it's above ground, but don't want to assume as it could be fiberglass.
