How to Fix a Brown Pool After Rain

With very heavy rainfall, the runoff from the gardens and surrounding pool areas can add large quantities of dirt, garden soil and mud into your pool, turning it brown and murky. If your pool has turned brown after a rainstorm, it could be because there is mud, dirt and particulates suspended in your pool water. If this is the case, consider visiting your local Poolwerx for a free water test and pick up some Vitalyse Fast Floc. Alternatively, request a service and we’ll come take care of it for you!

Fixing a brown pool

If the rain has passed, you can begin to clean your pool. If you have brown pool water following rain, consider visiting your local Poolwerx for a free water test and pick up some Vitalyse Fast Floc.

With very heavy rainfall, the runoff from the gardens and surrounding pool areas can add large quantities of dirt, garden soil and mud into your pool, turning it brown and murky. Before beginning any post-rain  storm pool cleaning, ensure you do the following: 

  1. Empty skimmer and pump baskets. If you don’t the accumulated debris in the pool will clog the baskets and reduce the flow of water. 
  2. Remove large debris and leaves from the water. They will influence the water chemistry of the pool and potentially stain your pool’s surface.
  3. Test your pool water. Your local Poolwerx offers free water testing, and can provide personal recommendations to bring your pool back to health.

If your pool has turned brown after a rainstorm, it could be because there is mud, dirt and particulates suspended in your pool water. If this is the case, pick up some Vitalyse Fast Floc from your local Poolwerx.

Vitalyse Fast Floc

This is a fast acting, concentrated floccing agent with a built in accelerator. It’s perfect to use after rainstorms, as it acts as a coagulant, binding dirt and mud particles together and sinking them to the bottom of the pool floor, where they can be vacuumed. 

Vitalyse Fast Floc is exclusively stocked at Poolwerx, and can be used in both heated and non-heated swimming pools. It is also compatible with salt, chlorine and mineral pools, and can help clear up muddy, murky and cloudy pools in just 3-6 hours!
