    Re: Removing a small rust spot from new pool

    I hope it is ok if I restart this thread? Please start your own thread rather than hijack another poster's thread. Thanks, Butterfly I have the same problem, I few small rust stains in a couple places where iron filings or something similar got dropped in by workers. Unfortunately, my PB went bankrupt, so I have to fix it myself. I have Aqua Blue Pebble Sheen, so it's not very noticeable, but I would like to fix it if i can. Thanks.

    How much staining? If you have a small amount, you can crush some cheap vitamin C (ascorbic acid) tablets in a sock and rub it on the stains.

    Thanks - they are small (BB-sized mostly), generally a few together and there are three or four such spots. I'm pretty sure that one or two are iron filings from a worker that I tried to clean up after, but I missed a few. I will try to post some pics tonight.
