Spots appear on the flooring, what should I do?
What are the causes?
The excessively corrosive water in your pool and the presence of metal ions promote the appearance of these stains. The absence of an aquaterre, the use of borehole water or work near your pool encourages the presence of copper and iron in the pool water.
As a first step, a PH check should be performed (as well as checking the chlorine level if you are using chlorine treatment). In a second step, we advise you to pour either STOP METAL or REVA OUT directly into the water in order to eat away at the stains on the polyester shell. If you do not use these products enough, using acid will remove the stains. On the other hand, this process totally disrupts the water balance. As a result, once the stains have been treated, it will be necessary to rebalance the water parameters.
How to avoid recidivism?
First of all, it is important that an aquaterre be installed to prevent metal ions from re-depositing on the hull. In addition, we recommend that you do not fill the pool with borehole water, as it is often highly charged with metal ions. If you wish to use this type of filling, a preventive treatment must be carried out beforehand, which is much more expensive than using water from the mains. Finally, once a month, it is advisable to carry out a preventive treatment. To do this, the only solution is to use a metal sequestering agent as well as an anti-limestone.
