My landscaper just spread pelletized lime on my lawn and carelessly spread quite a bit INTO our plaster-finished pool. Initially I thought it was dirt from edging/trimming, but then noticed it had not gone away.
First question: can lime cause brown spots in my plaster finish?
Second question: how can I fix it?
I've tried brushing with a nylon pool bruhsh, but that didn't work. I since tried a steel pool brush and that seemed to help (somewhat) bit it was getteing too dark to really tell if it made it better, or worse. I'm concerned that repeated, significant brushing in these areas with a steel brush may end up causing more damage to the plaster than the lime (apparently) caused.
Any suggestions, please?
