Thread: Yellow pollen

    Yellow pollen

    This is a problem most of you won't have to face for several months, but down here in Florida it's occurring right now.
    Every morning there is a ring of yellow pollen around the edge of my pool. Just like a bathtub ring.
    I brush it daily and check the chemicals. The pollen is ugly but doesn't seem to be upsetting the balance.
    I will be leaving for a 5 day vacation and am wondering if the pollen will stain the tiles?

    Organic stains are almost always easily removed by higher concentration of chlorine so should be an easy fix if it does.

    If it's pine pollen, mine washes of the tile rather easily

    I don't think that you would need to worry about it. Like duraleigh says, the chlorine will keep it in check.
