    Leaf stains at bottom of inground pool

    Hurrican Irene left me with pounds and pounds of leaves in the bottom of my vinyl liner pool (25k gal). It has taken days to get it all up. And now, particularly in 1 spot, I have a 6' (yes - foot) brown stain where the leaves had been sitting.

    Please tell me that I can get this off. Will chlorine slowly clean it up?

    Yes, chlorine will clear up organic stains. You can shock the pool or just increase your FC levels to the high FC for your recommended levels. It may take some time, but it will clear.

    You're done SLAMing when:
    1)You lose 1ppm or less FC overnight, & 2)You have .5ppm CC's or less, & 3)your water is clear.
