    Rust spot on vinyl liner

    I have an IG vinyl pool with a Watermaid salt system. It is around 33,500 gal. I opened up this season to find that I missed a hair bobby pin that was sitting on the bottom when I closed last year. It has left a rust spot on the liner. What can I do to get this off? I have tried to brush it off with no luck . It is time to move to the next step. Any ideas??

    I believe that vitamin c tablets will work.

    Yes, vitamin C should take care of it. Crush several vitamin C tablets and put the powder in a sock. Place the sock on the stain for a couple of minutes and the stain should be gone. If it is only partially removed wait 30 minutes and then repeat the process with more vitamin C.
