    Stains not responding to removers

    I have brownish stains on the floor and the floor edges that I cannot remove. I have a white fiberglass pool and have tried multiple stain removers (sparkle conquest, natural chemistry stain free and united chemicals super stain treat). The stains appear to be spreading to a 4 foot ledge all the way around the pool.

    My recent test results are from 7/2/14 am...

    Re: Stains not responding to removers

    You need to ID the type of stain to know how to remove it.
    Do they feel rough or smooth?

    If a vitamin C tablet will lighten them, then it is metal and you need to go through the AA treatment
    If a trichlor tablet will lighten them, then it is organic and elevated FC will lighten them.

    Please add your location (City, State or City, Country) to your profile as described HERE as it will help us help you in the future.
