    Vitamin C tablets-where can I buy them?

    Hello,
    first off, this is such a wonderful site, I've been learning so much! Thank you, everyone!
    I have some metal stains in my pool from hairclips, things like that...will vitamin C tablets help to lighten the stains or should I use something else?
    Where can I find these tablets?

    Thank you

    Vitamin C is a good choice. Any pharmacy or Walmart has them.

    If you only have a few spots, then vitamin C tablets work very well. But if you want to treat a large area you should use granular vitamin C. For details of how to do a whole pool treatment see this topic.

    Thanks! I read the steps to using asorbic acid; I'm going to try using the vitamin-C tabs first since the stains are very small. Just to make sure, these are the vitamin-C tablets that are in the vitamin isle?
