    Hello!

    Just a short intro,

    Pool details are in my signature, registered to get some thoughts on my staining issues. Pool coping, and part of wall above tile line is sandstone. I will pose stain detail and my specific questions in another thread. Pool is in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, and my knowledge of its history is mostly anecdotal.

    Thanks,
    Mark
