    Plaster Discolor Question

    Hello Everyone,

    I've been owning my house for the past five months and I'm dying to open my pool but cant because the cold weather.. I've learn a lot here and I'm still learning. I need help with my discolor plaster.

    I've SLAM my pool a few time and added CYA and brushed the pool for the past two weeks... Now I'm wondering what can I do bring the plaster back to life.... The pool is over 20yrs old I bet...

    Can you describe the discoloration, or post a photo? Also are the discolored areas smoother or rougher than normal areas?

    Hi, not sure how I missed this. I have no direct experience with rust/metal stains. But here are some articles from Pool School that might be helpful.
