    Default Only One Step is Stained??!

    I have a mystery that needs solving. One of my three pool steps (the middle one) is a tannish color, while the other two are the normal white. There is a return jet pointed so that water flows along the length of the step. Another bit of information that may help is that there always seems to be a small amount of sand on the steps, so maybe I have something broken in my pump that is allowing some sand to come through.

    Not sure what your mystery is. Is it

    1. Why is one step discolored and the others aren't... or...

    2. What is discoloring the step... or...

    3. Where is the sand coming from...?

    Try putting a vitamin C tablet on the stair and see what happens. It is definitely coming from your filter. The sand points to other issues. Let's go from there.
