    Rust stains on liner from bobby pins...

    I have 4 rust stains on my vinyl liner that I cannot get off. Apparently a girl lost 4 bobby pins while swimming in my pool. I eventually found them and removed them, but it was too late. My salt pool rusted the bobby pins and the rest is history. How can I fix this?

    Crush up vitamin C tabs and place them in a sock. Put the sock directly on the rust for 10 minutes. It may not get it all but I think it will get much of it. Repeat.

    ^^^ What he said. It happened to me. It's amazing how a bobbie pin can leave a perfect image on the pool floor only overnight.

    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!
