Before and after images of pool stains

The images below show pools that have had stains removed with our treatment without draining the pool or acid washing.  Also, our clients did not have the additional costs of refilling the pool or adding new chemicals after an acid wash.  Importantly, all images shown in this gallery are completely untouched and unedited.  In fact, most of the images have been provided by clients who have used one of our DIY kits.
