Most stains are easier to remove when they are fresh. Old stains or those which are deeply set may require a second treatment. Applying Stain Magnet to the affected area may be needed for stubborn stains. Not all swimming pool stains are metallic in nature. Stains from oils, vinyl liner fungus, leaves, algae, and other organic matter may not be significantly affected by Stain Magnet. See your GLB Pool & Spa retailer for recommendations on treating these types of stains.
