My girlfriend and I have just signed up for a new rental property as it has a pool, wahoo! We were very excited about getting into the property and having all our friends round for a pool party and BBQ, now that the weather has started to improve over here in Perth!
When we first viewed the property the pool was absolutely disgusting, with lots of debris at the bottom and green algae all over the walls. We explained that we would only take the property if the pool was thoroughly cleaned, which the letting agency agreed to do. However, they have now told me that they have cleaned the pool as much as they are willing to do and the pool is still pretty uninviting. Needless to say, we're not very happy with the letting agents, but will pick that up with them!
My question for you guys is - how do I clean it?!?! There is a pale tinge all over the pool walls and lots of black streak marks. I think that they are stains; after some research online I'm guessing that they are organic (pale stains) and metallic (dark streaks). Can these stains be removed with some elbow grease and chemicals? Can I get the pool back to looking inviting? Or will I have to drain and paint the pool?
I really don't want friends in the pool, especially not with their children, the way that it is at the moment!
Thanks in advance for your help,
