Vinyl Liner with Stains

Postby bobbyg714 » Fri 11 Jun, 2010 07:45

After opening the pool this year I have some dark stains on the bottom where leaves and debris had be all winter. Usually these stains lighten or disappear but they are not this year. I have brushed the areas multiple times and no luck. Is there a product or chemical I can use to remove or lighten the stains on the bottom of the pool? All help appreciated.

In order to get rid of the debris stains; you need to use chlorine..high treatment. Then run the system for 24 hrs. After 24 hrs vacum the stained area and it should disappear.

I agree that chlorine is the answer to organic stains but I have found I sometimes need to hold the FC up pretty high for as long as a week before they will disappear.
