Muriatic Acid will get rust stains out of a Gunite Pool. To prevent rust, it is recommended to keep pH level of the water slightly acidic.

Gunite, cement does not rust.

I seriously doubt that the pool sweep is the problem here with your stains. You will have to describe the stains in order to get to the root of the problem. Are the stains: Rust color or brown? Black or gray? Green? Blue? Are the stains consistent or uniform? Are they all over the pool? Do they cover the whole pool or are they in small patches? Answer these questions and I may be able to tell you the cause. k

You can use the same hole in the ground for both a vinyl liner pool and a gunite pool. You should not need a new hole dug.

The yellow stains are most likely algae. Superchlorinate and lots of brushing until it is gone. Then brush again. You may want to clean the filter too.

Ah, this pool is beyond saving with normal procedures of chemical treatments with the water in the pool. It must be drained and cleaned possibly using various or several methods.
