    Cleaning concrete?

    When I opened up the pool, I noticed that my cover left a few rust stains (?) on my white concrete.

    Any suggestion on a good cleaner? Anything I can do about it?

    Bleach? CRL (calcium, rust , lime remover)

    CLR Calcium Lime Rust Remover - Walmart.com

    These are the first things I thought of. Good luck!

    I never thought of using CLR on concrete. I wonder if that will work? No one has ever had this problem before?

    I do not close my pool so..............

    Maybe try a small spot well away from the pool to see what happens using CLR.

    I would make sure to have the water hose ready to rinse it away from the pool.
