    Steps after doing the Ascorbic Treatment

    I just did the Ascorbic Treatment and now the brown stains have turned white. What do I do now? Also, the original spot that I did the Vit. C tablet on is still far "blue-er" or cleaner than the rest of the pool. Should I add more Ascorbic Acid to get the pool back to it's natural "blue" - I also have small rust dots....HELP!!!!

    Re: Steps after doing the Ascorbic Treatment

    What exactly have you done so far? How long have you allowed the ascorbic acid to work and how much have you put in? Without the details we really can't help you. Also please post a full set of test results. If you have rust spots appearing now you have not done it properly. Have you raised your FC levels yet?
    Have you read the thread on how to do the ascorbic acid treatment? It does cover all the steps needed!
    The above thread is located in the "further reading' section of pool school. (Link to pool school is in the upper right corner of every page.) You have read ALL of pool school, right?
