Pool Discoloration – Keep It From Happening!

Instead of trying to fix pool discoloration, you can keep it from happening altogether. To do that, you need to know what is causing the pool discoloration.

Almost every time, your chlorine tablet floater is to blame for the discoloration. This is why the step starts to discolor many times because pool owners let it sit overtop the step. If you want to keep it from causing pool discoloration, you can simply use a “tall” or “deep” chlorine tablet floater.

Pool Discoloration – I’ve Already Got It

Maybe you are saying, okay, that’s great. I will make sure not to cause any more pool discoloration in my beautiful pool, but I already have some. How do I get rid of it?

If you haven’t let the pool discoloration get too deep then you may be able to get it out with some deep sanding. You’ll have to ask a professional their opinion on your specific situation. Many times, you are going to have to have your pool resurfaced, however, because of how severe it has gotten. Most of the time, your option is going to be to either resurface the entire pool or to keep from causing any more damage.

Designing, Maintaining and Enjoying Your Pool

If you haven’t gotten your pool yet, then you can start out properly instead of having to do damage control. You can start out at the beginning asking your pool professional what they would do during the construction stage to have the most beautiful and easy to maintain pool. Having professional guidance will allow you to make great decisions because they have seen almost every situation.

When you are thinking about pool design, you can think about everything from the shape, depth, steps or no steps and more. You can also think about what type of circulation system you want and all of those lovely interworkings. This again is a good matter to ask professionals about so they can guide you in the right direction.

Having your own pool is a joy and making sure that you are maintaining it properly and not allowing pool discoloration will keep you from having to undergo expensive resurfacing or other chores that you don’t want to deal with. If you have a pool cleaner and treatment team, make sure they understand what is discoloring your pool as many untrained pool cleaners do not understand what causes the pool discoloration.
