    New Plaster Oak Tree Staining

    Hi - I have a 15,000 gal free form pool with a white pearl pebble tec finish. We have only had water in the pool for about 2 weeks. We live in a suburb of San Antonio and our huge live oak trees are dropping their pollen like mad. What concerns me is that they seem to be staining the finish. Initially the acidic water and brushing seemed to take care of the problem but now it looks awful. My husband is freaking out. Any suggestions?

    Welcome to TFP.

    If it's oak staining raising your FC up a bit will probably help. Being that your finish is so new I wouldn't raise it too much all at once.

    Please post a set of test results and how you got them if you have them.

    That sounds just like organic staining, which fades away given a little time. As Bama Rambler said, post some test results and we can give you some more specific advice.
