16x32, 16,000 gal pool with vinyl liner.
I was brushing some stains on my pool steps with a wire brush and didnít realize that some of the wire filaments from the brush worked loose and went into the pool. I saw them the next day on the bottom of the pool with a small brown stain around each one of them. I vacuumed the pool and removed the small wire brush filaments but the brown staines remained where the small wire filaments were. The stains are about 1/4 to 1/2 inch in size. I am assuming these are rust stains?
I put 2 qts of Metal Magic in and let the filters run 24/7. The directions on the bottle say to adjust PH to 7.5 and chlorine to 1.0, which I did. It seems to me from what I read the PH should be low to help remove stains but since the bottle said raise it to "7.5 or higher" thats what I did.
Each day I brushed the stains but after 3 days they looked just the same, didnít even lighten up, so put in another qt of Metal Magic. Stains havenít changed at all, still there. I'm still trying to keep the chlorine at about 1.0.
Are these stains removable or am I stuck with them?
Any ideas appreciated.
