Thread: Cleaning water line stains

    Cleaning water line stains

    I have not one but two nasty brown water line stains on my lines from the swamp water the previous owners blessed me with .. one is above the water line, the other below it. Are there any good methods to remove thsese outside hours of scrubbing? The brush seems to get some of it but there is some tougher discoloration that just won't go away.

    To help you out, we need to know what type of pool you have... fiberglass? plaster w/ tile? vinyl?

    8000 gallon 20' x 48" round vinyl frame pool, 12" sand filter (don't have the specs on the pump), TF100 test kit

    "Shock" is a process, not a product!

    We've got something called "wipeout" that seems to take that line away.

    also we added a scumbug to the skimmer and is soaking up lots of black gunk.

    ah em, got both at the pool store

    Baking soda or pH+ on a green kitchen scrubbie will also do the job.

    Having done construction and service for 4 pool companies in 4 states starting in 1988, what I know about pools could fill a couple of books - what I don't know could fill a couple of libraries :-D
