I had just finished brushing and vacuuming the pool after yard work and a thunderstorm came up and blew Crape Myrtles flowers by the pound into the pool, I skimmed the surface within an hour and removed most, but then I noticed on the bottom in a couple corners of the shallow end quite a bit of staining from the debris. I immediately vacuumed and brushed again with no success, I panicked and dumped 8 cups chlorine in and went to scrubbing again, well with a lot of elbow grease I think I got the stains gone.
I started reading on the forum about these debris makers and I found a lot of posts to cut them down, but I found an older one that said the normal chlorine levels will take care of them but just need a little time to work, did i jump the gun and panic? Would the chlorine normal levels have removed the stains by say the next morning?
Would appreciate it if any of you more knowledgable pool owners know the answer, we just put this fiberglass pool in last year and I am trying to keep the stains to a minimum. And I did check with the landscape boss, no more tree removal is allowed (I removed 6 in the back yard), not even Crape Myrtles the have become trees on the other side of the house.
Appreciate your thoughts. Keith
