Ok, after 9 gallons of acid and 3 gallons of bleach in 3 days (yes, i used all the recommended methods of acid washing), and now... i am just ready to fill the whole pool with acid at this point. These yellow grain like stain are stubborn and just don't come off. I been just spilling acid and now there are yellow marks and spots all over the pool where acid did not work; apparently, i am assuming i did not spill enough acid…looks alike (please see picture taken this evening).
So, next option for me is to paint the pool ( i already have pool paint), but thought i ask here, before …if that will be a mistake. But, still here are my options:
-- 1st option: Give Up ! Leave it as it and fill the pool up with water; hopefully, treat it afterwards to remove the yellow grain like stain.
-- 2nd option: Get more acid and keep spilling till it is totally clean and white.
-- 3rd option: Paint it. (i already have white pool paint, as long as the pool paint last me 2-3 years i am happy and i am planing on using white paint which will mix with plaster better than other colors)
If i leave it and fill it up with water, it may look ugly will all stains; so, not sure which route to take but i am leaning towards painting. Any arguments/negative comments against painting or which option should i take…
