    I have had my salt water pool re-opened by one group. I have a brown stain at the bottom of my pool since it was opened. I have a woman who put more chemicals to fight metal stains, and the stairs turnings yellow. Tomorrow will be 24 hours that I have had my water filter device on, at her instruction, for 24 hours. Tomorrow will be 24 hours or more. The stain seems to still be there. We had her add enough bags of salt water, use specifically for our kind of pool. She told us to leave the pool system going continuously for the past 24 hours to make the chemicals efficient. Tomorrow we will see if this has worked or not.

    What do you do in situations like this?

    Our steps leading into my pool look yellow. Will what she has done help this situation?

    Thank you.

    Welcome to TFP!

    Without knowing what was added to your pool, we can't tell whether it will help or not. Metal staining, if that's what you have, can be frustrating to deal with. How old is your pool, and is this the first time you've had the problem?
