    How to clean exterior of pool?

    Hello, I have a Coleman pool and we are about to start getting it ready for summer. This year we decided to leave it up thru winter. However, the exterior is very dirty. It has grayish-black staining all over. We have tried hosing it off and scrubbing a bit but no luck. I tried some oxiclean as well and it won't budge. The inside of the pool where the water is does not have these stains. Any ideas as to how to get it off?

    Light bleach solution? SPray it on and hose it off.

    I was thinking bleach but didn't want to hurt the vinyl. I may try it watered down. I'm starting to think it might be mold.

    That is why I said a light bleach spray. I would try 25/75 at first and MAYBE go to 50/50 but would not go much past that.
