When I opened my pool that's been covered with a Loop Loc mesh cover all winter, I was able to vacuum to waste all the dirt and debris in it with no problem. Since then, however, I've noticed there are quite a few orangish-colored stains in it. I've scrubbed them with a wire pool brush, and they're not coming out, which leads me to believe they aren't algae. I'm thinking these are leaf stains, and am wondering what the best method for removing them is?
I've been told I can try getting some vitamin C from WalMart and putting that over the stains to see if it removes them. Sounds simple...but a bit harder when I think about, "exactly how do I do this?". I suppose I could put a couple of tablets in a nylon stocking and press it down onto one of the stains, holding it there for a few minutes, and see if that works. If it does....great! Then I think, "how do I do this for the stains on the bottom of the pool?" Obviously, the water's too cold right now to climb in, so holding the stocking down with my foot isn't possible.
Has anyone here had this issue? Is there a good solution available?
