Vinyl pool liners are less prone to stains than plaster pools, but they can occur. Metal stains, chemical stains and organic stains can occur on the vinyl or on plastic steps or ladders.

Metal Stains - Iron, Copper, Manganese can come out of solution if your pool water has high levels of metals. Heavy doses of copper algaecide can lead to a blue-green staining of pool liners.

Chemical Stains - Bleaching can be caused by corrosive granular pool chemicals laying directly on the surface. Chemicals such as pool shock, pH down, calcium increaser or chlorine tablets, can fade a liner and cause it to pucker. This is not really a 'stain', and unfortunately, although a light brown chemical stain will fade, the bleaching or puckering of the vinyl cannot be reversed.

Organic Stains - Leaves and twigs, acorns, berries. Worms or other dead animals. Bacteria and algae. Pollen and pollution. Your open pool absorbs and absorbs all sorts of organic matter every day. Cleaning, sanitation and filtration keep it under control, usually. Organic liner stains are often removable easily.

how to prevent these stains? simply by keeping your pool water chemistry balanced and the pool clean to maintain your pool stain free. moreover, To control pool stains from metals and minerals, use Jack’s Magic Purple Stuff or MetalFree.

These stain prevention pool chemicals control pool staining by making it difficult for minerals in the water to precipitate out of solution, where it can stain your vinyl liner, steps or ladders.
