    Vit C Stain removal process??

    Could someone direct me to a post or explain how to remove small rust stains on the bottom of a plaster pool.

    Some metal bristles got left on the bottom from wire brushing coping while the mason was doing coping repairs.

    Most are in the shallow end.

    Thanks

    Here is an article on removing metal stains: Metals in the Water and Metal Stains. Within this article is a link to the Ascorbic Acid treatment process.

    Was editing my post to correct a typo and add one more thing and Butterfly beat me to it: If we're talking about a few isolated spots that are the result of a one-time event like what you describe, rubbing a Vitamin C tablet on the stains should suffice.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.

    Small stains? You can crush some cheap Vit C tabs in a sock and hold/rub it on the stain.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
