    Unknown Residue Removal Help

    My pool pump broke a while ago which caused my pools condition to take a dive. I replaced the pool pump and tried to restore it's health, but I still have one issue. As you can see here http://imgur.com/a/XBaAe , There is a residue that I am unable to remove from the pool surface. I have tried scrubbing to no avail. What would I need to do to remove this? Thanks for any help.


    My pool levels from are available from the imgur link above.

    Hello and welcome to TFP! A stain like that could be scale, organic, or metal. Any chance you might have a TF-100 or Taylor K-2006 test kit to post some water results? In addition, try rubbing/holding a chlorine tab on the area. If that doesn't work, try some vitamin C tablets crushed in a sock and rub those in it. Let us know if either of those change the appearance of the stain.

    Hi, Thanks for the speedy response! I do not have either test kit but will look into getting one. In the meantime, I will try testing with the tabs and let you know results!

    I would suggest trying each of those in different areas of stain so that there is no chance to mis-read any response they give.
