    Ascorbic Acid Treatment Issue

    Hi All, I had some staining and used a vitamin C tab to test and it came right off. So, I read all the articles here about ascorbic acid treatments of stains and followed closely. Worked so fast and amazingly well. Really impressive. I kept PH at 7.2 and slowly raised chlorine over a couple...

With my last liner (original) I knocked some...

    Mud stain - vinyl liner

    Hi All: I recently had some renovation work done and my pool had to be pumped out into holding pools. While the work was being done in the deep end a bit of water leaked into the shallow end from the steps. The water was reddish brown presumably from the ground water under the liner and behind...
