I've been trying to think of a relatively cheap way to remove metals from my pool, not just remove the staining and sequester the metals. Here is my theory so far.
If the metals do not have a particular attraction to my liner and steps, they should stain anything in the pool pretty much equally. So, if I could find something that is:
- has lot of surface area
- is easy to get back out of the pool
I should be able to put this in the pool, let it get stained with metals, then pull it out and throw it and the attached metals away, or recycle it if possible.
Saran Wrap was the first thing that came to mind lol. Or maybe a big mesh container full of plastic bags.
Please let me know what you think and feel free to discourage me if this is madness =)
