Identify Pool Stains

Correctly identifying pool stains is the most challenging part of what we do.  It also takes a lot of experience.  Although different types of stains can appear to be very similar ​in colour, the remedy needed to remove them can be very different.  For example, even experienced pool technicians will frequently misdiagnose stains.  This is one reason why we have more than 200 pool technicians as regular clients.   Also, many pool shops often suggest various expensive ‘all purpose’ stain removal  products that have no effect. This is because they have no idea what the stain is and are using your money to try different options.  One of the most common questions we are asked is how to identify pool stains.

Remember, in many cases, if stain products are not matched to the right type of stain it can make the stain look even worse and harder to remove.Our customers often ask us to recommend what the best stain remover is for their pool.  The answer is not as simple as suggesting a single product or acid as it depends on the type of stain.  Don’t worry, after nearly a decade and 8,000 pools, we know how to identify pool stains and remove them.
