    Copper stains??? Removal.

    I have a salt water pool and it is a light white surface.
    I notice all through out the pool, there are very light faded pink ish red stains pretty much everywhere.

    Due to lack of conditioner in my pool, I have had almost no chlorine in my pool (as it was explained to me by the leslies expert)
    One customer said once I get the chlorine up, the texas sun and that chlorine will make the stains fade.

    See attached photo. I am not sure if it is copper stains or not but they are faded enough that they aren't obvious.
    Any suggestions on what these stains might be and possible resolution

    Copper stains are greenish blue in color. This is something different. Can you post some test results for us?

    I think that you best course of action is to get a little CYA in there, enough to get you to 30, and shock you pool at a FC of 12. Pinkish colored algae is possible and that might fix it.
