One of our full bathrooms has a 30 year old fiberglass tub and
surround. About 10 years ago it was commercially refinished to change
its color. Over time the faucet must have developed a tiny drip leak
and where the drip dropped (?) it developed a greenish stain on the
finish. We do not have chlorinated water as we're in the country and
on a deep well.
I've tried the usual CLR and limeaway, both of which did absolutely
nothing to remove/reduce the stain. The stain is not very pronounced
but it is there.
Just wondering if any readers have solved this particular type of
problem before and what the secret was?
Thanks for any tips/suggestions.
I'd contact the business that refinished you tub, or any local company
that does that kind of work, and see if they know of the problem, and
what the fix is.
If anyone would know what caused the stain and how to get rid of it,
they'd by most likely to know.
Haven't tried yet but plan to this weekend. Also, my WS is an
exchange system because we're not supposed to backflush our tanks into
septic. But sewers are being installed next spring so that may
I'll post my results when they happen. Happy week end all.
It the problem is due to acid water, then consider treating it promptly. My
sister has that problem with spring water which was handled for some years
with a system that used ion exchange. Salt had to be added to a tank from
time-to-time to reactivate the exchange media. She didn't service the salt
tank for some weeks one year and was rewarded with several pin-hole leaks in
her copper pipes and an expensive visit by a plumber.
