Start by testing your water
and checking your balance, regardless of the type of stain you have.For Organic Stains:
Once your pool is balanced, super shock your pool with calcium hypochlorite (we recommend Rx Clear® Super Shock Swimming Pool Shock
). Once the shock has circulated for a few hours, apply granular chlorine
to the stain and begin to scrub. For Metal/Mineral Stains:
Once your pool is balanced, you’ll want to carefully follow the instructions of a stain remover designed to remove stains caused by that specific metal or mineral. This often requires you to pour a specific amount in based on how many gallons of water are in your pool. The amount varies by the cleaner, so always check as you’re purchasing a stain remover so you get the proper amount. For Scale Stains:
There are a few ways to remove scale. The easiest method is to purchase a calcium stain remover, which you’ll just add to the water or apply to the area — depending on the instructions. For scale on tile, you can use a stain eraser that works on calcium or a pumice stone
. You’ll use this to scrub the area and leave your tile looking polished.
