    Steps Stained Brown.. Well Water

    We are getting a new liner installed and I wanted to take the opportunity to remove the brown stains on my pool steps due to well water.. any product suggestions? I prefer something I can pickup at home depot. Thanks!

    The stains are likely iron but confirm that first. Crush up some vitamin C tablets and put them in a sock and then place the sock so it is in contact with the stains (may have to weight it down) If it's iron, stain should disappear or lighten very noticeably.
