Removing pool stains with a topical chemical can be done in a lot of cases. You just need to know what is normal plaster mottling (discoloration) and what may be a stain that only a drain and acid wash or replaster will remove. I have had good success removing the stain on pool surfaces with Bio Dex Aquadex 50 Stain-Off.
If you look at the reviews of just about any stain removing product you will see a mix of 5-star reviews and 1-star reviews. Of course, the 5-star reviews are that the product worked. The 1-star reviews that it did not. And again, that is the nature of stain removing products. Some stains are just not going to lift off. So is it worth spend $20-$50 on a product that may lift a stain off? I think so and I often tell my customers I will try this or that product with a disclaimer that it may not work. For the price and the possibility that a stain will be removed or dramatically improved it is worth it. The alternative is to just live with the stain without trying anything.

Here is more on the product from Bio Dex:
“Aquadex 50 Stain-Off / Spa Stain Off removes copper iron and metallic stains from plaster pools and black cobalt stains from fiberglass. Stain removal results can be noticed within 48 hours up to 10 days depending on how old or fresh the stains are. The product is stable at higher temperatures so works well in the spa environment. The effectiveness of Aquadex 50 Stain Off will not be compromised by chlorine, acid, or other sanitizing products. The product can be mixed with Plaster White ‘n Brite as a booster for removing difficult metal stains in an acid wash.
Aquadex 50 Stain-Off Features
Metal stain remover. Quickly removes metal stains in spas, pools, and fountains. It stays stable at high temperatures. Stain removal will be apparent in one to 10 days depending on the age of the stain and severity. The second application might be necessary after 10 days.
Aquadex 50 Stain-Off Instructions
Aquadex 50 Stain off is applied directly to the water where the staining exists. Swimmers can enter the water after thirty minutes. High temperatures will not affect the product’s stability. Stain removal takes time and may require additional treatment for resistant stains. Run the filter often and for complete results within 10 days. Lower pH of 7.2 rather than 7.8 for best results.”
One of the biggest successes of the product is using it with a full acid wash. It does a great job removing the metal stains from the plaster or pebble surface and I highly recommend using it with every acid wash. I have had some very good results with the product when used in an acid wash. Sometimes acid alone can’t remove metal staining and the Aquadex 50 will get stains off that otherwise would be left behind. It is very easy to use during an acid wash as you simply add the product directly to the water/acid mixture before pouring it on the surface.
