    Squirrels, pecans and lessons learned!

    This is our first year with an above ground pool. I have learned many new things. Lesson 1. Don't forget the bleach!! I fought the green monster and won but it was not easy.
    2. A bigger pump is better!
    3. Don't put the pool under a pecan tree. These dang squirrels are throwing chewed up pecans in the pool.
    4. Do not wait to vacuum up said pecans. The pecans are leaving stains on the vinyl.

    Swimming season is just about done so I am taking the pool down. Any recommendations on how to get the green/brown stains off the liner? I am sure I will have more lessons to add after taking down the pool. All in all, it was worth the work for all the fun my family had this summer.

    If the stains are simply from the pecans, perhaps try a Magic Eraser. That's been a good catch-all remover for many items. If you suspect the stains are form something else, let us know and maybe we can get you some more ideas. Glad you have enjoyed your pool.

    I would be careful with using magic eraser on a liner, I've heard that it removes the design.
