    Leaf Stains

    Is there anyway to speed up getting rid of leaf stains in my inground vinyl pool? I've read that given enough time that brushing and exposure to Cl and sun will get rid of them but I was wondering if there's anything else I could do.

    Thanks!

    Raising the chlorine level will help accelerate the fading.

    Keeping the FC up high in your pool would probably speed it up....I'm not sure but it makes sense.

    My liner was pretty badly stained from the leaves two years ago and it seems like it took not much more than a couple of weeks for the chlorine to clean it up. I was keeping the FC around 4-6ppm with a CYA of 30ppm
