How to Clean Dirty Pool Walls

dirty walls in pool

Pool walls will collect organic debris, stains, and other discoloration unless you clean them regularly. If you’ve let your cleaning regimen slide a little bit, then you may have noticed some build-up on your pool walls. In this guide, we will show you how to tackle a deep clean of dirty pool walls.

What Can I Use to Clean My Pool Walls?

In order to clean your pool walls, you will need washcloths, pool brushes, and the right pool cleaning solution. Your choice of brush is simple, just make sure to use one designed for your style of pool and place it on your telescopic pole.

Your choice of cleaner is a bit trickier. You need to make sure that the cleaning solution you use will remove the specific stain that is on your pool walls. Here are some options:

  • Klean Multi: This cleaner can handle all kinds of pool stains. In our opinion, it is the best vinyl pool wall cleaner to remove the dreaded water line ring. It can also clean fiberglass pools and fiberglass walk-in stairs.
  • Stain Out: This powder is designed to remove metal stains from the liner. Sometimes high levels of metals, in pool water can leave stains on the liner that are difficult to remove without the proper cleaner designed to take them away. This product is also great to brighten up white fiberglass steps that have a yellow tinge to them.

How to Clean Dirty Pool Walls

Sometimes the steps that you take before scrubbing are the most important, especially when it comes to organic stains. Here’s how to remove stains from your pool:

  • Handle debris: Leaves and other organic debris left for too long in the water can cause staining, so make sure you have removed them.
  • Balance the water: Before trying to remove a stain on your pool it is very important to ensure your pH is in the range of 7.2-7.6. When the pool water pH levels are too high the stain cannot be released from the liner.
  • Add cleaner: Apply the cleaner as directed by the manufacturer. Sometimes you may have to wait for the cleaner to work before you start scrubbing.
  • Scrub the pool: Using your pool brush and pole, brush the stained spots.

How to Clean Algae from Pool Walls

Algae is a collection of living organisms that cling to surfaces. It can be challenging to remove them from the side of your pool. We suggest using Alg Out Ultra 60% to help make algae easier to remove. We always suggest brushing the walls first to remove any algae off of the liner and then adding the Alg Out Ultra 60% to the water. Once the entire procedure is done, don’t forget to vacuum up the dead algae to waste to prevent it from coming back and leaving you with a crystal clear pool.
