Client: Private Owned Pool
Location: Grand Rapids, MI
Year Completed: 2014 Spring
Job cost $275 Savings to customer $6,000 (if it had been left as you see the before photo one full summer the walls would have had to be re-Marcited
This home owner did not cover their pool over the fall/winter and all the Oak leaves from the surrounding trees fell into the pool. Oak leaves are very acidic and create a Tannic Acid that leave the pool stained brown. If left untreated it will eat right through the Marcite on the walls. This can cost up to $6,000 to have them redone.
We went in, drained the pool, gave it a strong acid wash and followed up with a chlorine rinse and filled. The after photo says it all! They did not need to have their pool painted.
