Leaf stains

Postby Dazza123 » Fri 18 Nov, 2016 07:01

Recently moved into a new house and l am experiencing gum leaves falling into the pool. If left overnight they are staining the bottom of the pool. Hope someone can assist with some helpful advice.

Leaf stains are organic and can be removed with a high level of chlorine.
Shock your pool untill the water is clear and then double the normal dose of chlorine untill the stains disappear, it will take a while to work
But first determine your correct shock level for your pool with Chlorine / CYA Chart as your chlorine level is relative to your CYA
How do you chlorinate and test? Bleach is best to use for instant results
