    Staining

    In our shallow end for about a 7 foot run on each side about 1 foot down in the water appears to be some staining. It isn't algae that can be brushed because I tried that. I am hesitant to put ascorbic acid in because I don't want to ruin the FC levels. I may take a magic eraser to it and see what happens. This stain was here last year as well for the duration of the season. You couldn't probably see it unless you look for it but now it's all I see.

    Any thoughts. I wish I could post a pic but it won't show it right.

    Thanks

    I have read you can crush cheap vitamin C tablets and set or rub them on the stain.

    That's the trouble with having crystal clear water. You see every blemish on the pool surface, every stain, every blade of grass and flower petal that sinks in the pool.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Right the vitamin c is ascorbic acid. If I add that it will decrease the FC big time. I'm going to see if a mag ice eraser works first
