I have some staining on the surfaces of my pool. What causes that to happen?

Surface stains are most commonly due to chemical imbalance. The 2 chemical stains are inorganic(metals like copper, iron, manganese) or organic(algae, pink slime). There are steps you can take to determine which type of stain it is.  Start with a white sock with Lo N Slo (ph Decreaser) over the stain for 1-3 minutes.  A Vitamin C tablet could also be used.  If the stain lightens, it is inorganic or metal.
If the stain does not lighten add some chlorine to a white sock and place it on the stain for 1-3 minutes.  A chlorine stick or tablet could also be used.  If the stain lightens, it is organic.  You can contact us for instructions on which chemical to use to treat your stain.
