    Marcite stains?

    I've been lurking here for a while and SLAMmed my pool last year using your concept here and it worked like a charm.

    I'm noticing now that the marcite is starting to look "old" the pool is about 9 years old and original finish, but I dont remember the pool looking like this when we first moved in.
    are these stains or just a signal to start saving up a few $k and get ready for the hit?

    Welcome to TFP!!!

    Please put a useful location in your profile ... it can affect the responses you get.

    How do the "stains" feel? rough? raise?

    Could be calcium scaling. Can you post a full set of test results?
