Save

Concrete pools are durable and customizable. Different features are added to concrete pools, such as fiber optic lighting, disappearing edges, heating and luxury finishes. Concrete pools come in endless shapes, sizes and designs, to fit any backyard or outdoor space. As with all pools, concrete pools require frequent maintenance and cleaning. Dirt, body oil and grime collect and leave stains on concrete pool walls. Fortunately, certain cleaning equipment is effective at removing stains from concrete swimming pools.

Things You'll Need

  • Stainless steel pool brush
  • Pumice stone
  • Liquid enzyme pool cleaner
  • Brush the concrete with a stainless steel pool brush. Brushing removes dirt, algae and film from concrete swimming pools.

  • Rub the stained concrete with a pumice stone. The porous lava in pumice stones effectively removes stains from concrete.

  • Inspect the concrete pool for remaining stains. If stains remain, apply liquid enzyme pool cleaner directly to the stained concrete. Read the manufacturer's directions to determine how much of the cleaner to apply.

  • Scrub the stained concrete with the stainless steel pool brush. Agitating the stains allows the enzyme cleaner to break down oils and organic matter.

Tips & Warnings

  • Brush the pool once a week to prevent stains from developing on the concrete.
