    Fiberglass Pool Walls Dirty

    We had 3 wonderfully windy days here (So Cal) and it insisted on depositing dirt from landscaping areas around the pool. I had bilateral TKA (knee replacement) and was not able to get out there for 10 days following nature going Wizard of Oz on my yard. I vacuumed the pool into the culvert then brushed it down. The filter ran 24 hrs following the first pass. I came back to it the next day to see that the walls still had mucho dirt on them even after the brushing. It is stubborn and not readily coming off.

    I am looking to get the stuff out of the pool without having to get too abrasive. If I scrub it with the regular brush it is slowly coming off but not completely. I have had the same issue in the past but I was out there within 24 hours reviving the pool.

    The deposit looks like heavy brown dust.

    Thanks, Brian

    Hi, welcome to TFP! Is the dirt at the waterline or above it? You might want to try a magic eraser cleaning pad if it is above the waterline.
