    Rust on/in Pebble Sheen

    I have a pebble sheen pool that I found a small rust spot in. It's about the size of a dime, maybe a little smaller. The repair tech is coming out tomorrow to check it out/fix it. Everything is under warranty so I'm not to worried about it, just kind of wondering what all is involved with the repair. Theres not much info by way of google.

    They may just scrape it out and not bother patching; I get those occasionally in my pool, and they're usually from something like a bobby pin or BB sitting on the bottom of the pool. They fade without any help, in my experience, but a little AA would speed it up.

    Thanks for the reply. The tech came out today, poured some acid on the rust and brushed and it disapeared. I'm a happy camper.

    OK so I just put 2 and 2 together and figured out where my rust spot probably came from. A while back I used a wire wheel and cordless drill to remove some scaling I had around my water line tile. I'm thinking several pieces of wire fell into the pool while using this method. The vacuum sucked most of it up but that one lone strand got into a good spot and didnt get removed.
