    Iron stains

    Ok - I confirmed my ring around the pool is indeed IRON ... it easily went away with the Vitamin C tablet. Should I just use more tablets to remove the rest of the ring or what?

    No, you'll need to buy pounds of ascorbic acid, and let FC drop to nothing. Which means you'll need an algaecide to keep it from blooming, and when it's all done, you'll need a sequestrant. Start reading here: ascorbic-treatment-to-rid-pool-of-metal-stains-t2298.html

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
