Stain Removal and Prevention

Pollard Pools & Spas specialise in the removal of difficult and common stains from all types of swimming pool interiors. 

What we do: Look for the cause

We have nearly 50 years of experience in monitoring water quality and have the knowledge and information to professionally treat and prevent stains from reappearing. 

Most of our clients have already spent a lot of time and money trying several expensive ‘stain remover’ products before calling us. These products not only fail to remove the stain, but can actually make the staining worse! This is because most ‘retail’ products are simply not strong enough to remove tough stains.

Testing the stain will determine what caused it so you can prevent it, what the stain is made of and how long it will take to remove it.

Stains are primarily caused by the introduction of metals into the water which react with Chlorine or the alkaline pH, resulting in dark coloured metal oxides on the pool’s interior surface.

Our Stain Removal Solutions

The first step we take in testing the stain is to discuss with the pool owner what they have added recently which may have caused the stain. Usually a pool owner will have some clue as to how the stain formed.

Was it after adding salt? Salt is the biggest cause of stains in pools.

A Copper based Algaecide?

Do they have an Ioniser?

Do they have a leaf problem and the leaves sit in the pool for weeks?

Has there been a storm and dirt been washed into the pool?

How long has the stain been there? Have they tried anything themselves?

Our Technicians are experts in the removal of stains, with the knowledge and experience to diagnose corrective treatment and prevention saving you time and money.
