Caused by: - The corrosion of ferrous parts of the circulation system by low pH water

Cure: -

  • Act swiftly to prevent further damage - such as staining of the plaster, grout or liner
  • Check with your Pool Shop to see if it is safe to empty the pool and replace the water all in one go, or if should be done by progressive dilution
  • Remove rust stains from the pool surfaces with a proprietary tile or liner cleaner
  • Use PVC fittings to replace the ferrous metal fittings
  • Balance the fresh water as you refill your pool
