Stains can happen in any type of Swimming Pool! Part 1 of 2

No matter what type of swimming pool you have, whether it is a gunite, fiberglass, or vinyl liner swimming pool, you can get stains that may ruin the look of your pool. The stains can be caused by organic materials such as plants, leaves, and even small branches falling into your pool. Stains caused by organic items have a tendency to be black or a tann-ish brown, almost rust-colored stain. Metals can also cause staining in your swimming pool, especially if you are using well water. However, metals such as magnesium, iron, and copper can be found in all types of water.

Stains can also be caused by having low pH or total alkalinity levels. Low pH or total alkalinity can also cause any metal pool equipment such as heaters, ladders, or pool lights to corrode. Determining what type of stain you have is important to determine what course of action you will use to treat the stain. We do recommend that you follow a regular weekly maintenance schedule to keep your pool in tip top shape and STAIN-FREE!
