How To Prevent, Identify And Remove Stains In Your Swimming Pool
Given all of the time and effort that you’ve likely invested into your swimming pool, the sight of stains in it can be mortifying, especially when you’ve got guests around. What’s even worse is when certain problem stains prove resistant to brushing; so what exactly can you do to get rid of them or even better, to prevent them from developing in the first place?
But first, let’s take a look at some of the other things that you ought to know about stains in your pool.
What causes swimming pool stains in the first place?
The simple answer is that stains in pools are usually caused by imbalances in the water brought about by the presence of certain metals or minerals. When metals come out of solution in one or several places on the shell of your pool, the result can be one or multiple unsightly stains that might not be easy to remove using the most obvious cleaning methods.
There are, though, other potential causes of stains in your pool. These include rust coming through the wall, floor or around fittings, as well as organic material like leaves, dirt, oils, algae or worms.
Pool stains can often be identified by their location or colour. Rust stains, for example, tend to appear in isolated spots – and if something looks like rust, it normally is. If the stain is greenish-brown, though, there’s a good chance that it has an organic cause, such as tannins leaching from mud, leaves or acorns – and as for brown, black and purple stains, this dark colour combination points to manganese being the culprit.

There are three stages to the treatment and prevention of pool stains: de-chlorinating the pool water, addingMulti Stain Removerto lift the stain, and finally introducing No More Metal to the pool once the stain begins to lift. The last of those steps is a really important one for ensuring stains do not reappear on the surface of your pool after they have been removed.
