Thread: New pool plaster, stains

    New pool plaster, stains

    We had our plaster installed this weekend, and were instructed to add acid and brush the pool 3 times a day.

    Official pool start up is Tuesday. The question I have is with stains.

    Over night a leaf feel in the pool and sank to the bottom of the deep end. It left a very noticeable brown stain on the bottom of the pool, brushing it does not remove it. Is this normal? Will the stain come out when we chlorinate on Tuesday?

    Any tips appreciated

    Also, 3 posts down I added a picture of some stains near tile, would appreciate feedback on that as well, we are new to plaster pools!

    Yes. This is an organic stain and it will disappear once your water is properly chlorinated.

    It should. Organic staining usually lifts with chlorine.

    Thanks much, that is a relief. I wonder if its normal to wait 3 days for a pool startup?

    Its the quickest the startup person could schedule us.

    Also, we have another strange thing. We have brown tile and where the tile meets the plaster there is brown weeping that has seeped down on the plaster in some places. Does anyone know how this is removed? Brushing did not help, picture attached.

    Thanks so much for any input.
