    Ah darn! Nature2 causing my stains?

    When I bought my house the pool had a nature2 mineral cartridge, it also came with light blue /green stains along with strange blotches throughout the the entire pools plaster. Not knowing the cartridge could be the problem I've replace with new ones the last 2 years. Yup the stains are worse than before. Is there a way to remove the stains short of draining?
    Thanks or any help.

    You will need to do an ascorbic acid treatment and then put metal sequestrants in the water.

    Okay. So vitamin C is a way to test the stains. I'll get get some on my next trip to the store. Now what's my next step if the vitamin C does nothing?

    Do you have a chlorine tablet? If the vit C doesn't take it off, try setting a tricolor tablet on it.

    But, as you have been using Nature 2 I'm betting the vit C will do the trick.
