    Vitamin cleaning question


    I read we can use vitamin C to clean the pool stain and rust. My question is could we use any other vitamin? Like vitamin D?

    No. What you need to use is ascorbic acid, vitamin c.

    Usually we only suggest using Vitamin C tablets to test stains, for actual cleanup you likely need to do an ascorbic acid treatment of your pool water which typically requires a few pounds of ascorbic acid.
