Fixing a brown pool
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:
- 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.
- Remove large debris and leaves from the water. They will influence the water chemistry of the pool and potentially stain your pool’s surface.
- 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.
