    White Film on Blue Fiberglass Steps

    Can someone help me determine how to remove a white film from my blue fiberglass steps. My pool water got low and the water evaporated from the top step today. When I got home there was a white film (or stain) or maybe even fading of my top step. I tried to clean it with a Mr. Clean Eraser, Bar Keeper Friend, and even an SOS pad. Nothing touched it. It won't come off. I am worried it is faded. The rest of my pool is sparkling. Any ideas?

    Does it feel rough at all? ... like is it calcium deposits from water continually evaporating.

    You could try a dilluted solution of muriatic acid and scrubbing ... although I am not too sure how much risk that puts on the fiberglass.

    Thanks. I filled my pool back up to cover the step and the white went away. So as long as it doesn't show up when it is covered with water I am fine with it.
