We haven't swam in the pool for about a week and a half because the weather hasn't co-operated. But I took the cover off last night to clean the pool for my daughters birthday party this weekend and found some staining on my lights. One light has just a little, while the other one has allot. These lights go into the side wall of the pool.

This light is furthest away from the returns and as you can see has just a little bit of staining around the outer edge of the white part of the light.
This light is closest to the returns and as you can see has alot of staining on the front and the backside which goes into the wall of the pool.
The pool store gave me some metallic stain remover, but he said he wasn't sure if it would work or not. I thought I would check here to find out what you folks think. If the stain remover won't work then I will just take it back to the store.
This isn't really staining but more or less fading I think, but the top edge of my skimmer entrance is fading. Our pool gets allot of sun (new sub-division) so I am not sure what I can do.
What are my options to clean this up? could I get a new cover to put over it? or is this just something I have to live with.
