A little bit unrelated, but it worked.

I had three used to be really nice chaise lounge deck chairs with some type of vinyl/cloth slings. Last winter all three (stored in garage) got rust stains on the vinyl slings from road salt, water, etc.

My wfe already told me to throw out the chairs and plan on buying new ones. Tried two or three cleaners, nothing worked.

1/4 cup of Stain Magnet in about two gallons of water, brush on, hose off and the deck chairs look brand new in five minutes. Rust went bye-bye instantly. Vitamin C would have probably done the same thing.

Just saved $300 in deck chairs thanks to your forum. Thanks

Please, I mean no offense to the comments above, but the link to vitamin C was 3# for $30. I bought the Stain magnet online for $15 for 2# bottle.

It took less than one bottle to clear up 10,000 gal of water in less than an hour. I don't feel like I wasted a lot of $.

I normally squeak when I walk I'm so tight. How much vitamin C to clear water in 10,000 gal fiberglass pool?. My manganese level is 3.0 PPM.

They are really for two different things. If Metal-Out alone works for you, great! The Ascorbic Acid is for treating existing surface stains in a pool that a "Metal Out" product wont work on...not for the water. The Metal-Out, Pool Magnet stuff is to keep the metals in suspension or make them filterable. Sometimes you really need both., THe ACid to remove and the Metal-Out to keep it in suspension.

As for things outside of the pool where you don't have to worry about re-staining...I just use good old "Iron Out" from Wal-mart.

I brought my water sample in for testing and he noted that my copper and iron levels are zero so it is not a metal. He did mention that brown algae could cause this? It is also causing staining on my stairs, of the same colour, I do have well water any help would be aprreciated.


Well, I used the stains remover to get rid from brown stains. Its works so nicely. For this you have to put stain remover in the pool during the water is very cold. Because it will effect then on.
