    Pool is coming along, but there is a knew hurdle!!!

    My pool is coming along, my chemistry is spot on and I have passed the ONCL test, however I am face with yet another problem I fear. My steps are discolored to the point that they might be unreparable. And my shallow end has the same stain, or so it seems. Soooooo I am asking is there anything to do. I cant take pics tonight as it is too late. I did have a bad leaf problem, as well as the algae. I know I am rambling but I am worried.

    IF you hold your FC on the high side of recommended for your CYA the stains may lighten with time. You can hold a trichlor tablet on the stain and see if it lightens. If it does, it's organic and will most likely lighten with time.

    My steps had yellowed over the past 2 years or so but with the switch to the BBB method I have noticed that my steps have whitened up to the point where they look pretty normal.
