The black (burn) marks show up on Gray plaster pools. White plaster pools will show up as a yellow or rust color. Remove the tabs and put them in a proper floating devise, the marks will go away in time.

Try using wet and dry sand paper on the burn marks to reduce their visibility and roughened plaster.. additionally, tablets of any size should NEVER be placed or tossed into the pool or skimmer. K

How can you remove the brown stains on the bottom of a gunnite pool from chlorine tablets?

Some pool stores sell a tool just for small stains. It may have to be ordered. I think it is made by Pool Tool in Ventura, Calif. It uses a small amount of acid in a cup like device which is placed over the stain. Caution: leaving the device on a spot too long will etch the plaster and it will be worse than when you started. Tablets are not thrown into the pool to maintain chlorine levels. Use a feeder. Also do not put tabs in the skimmer. k

It probably would make it worse. Chlorine is heavier than water, so when the dispenser releases chlorine, it would sit at the bottom, rather than drift down.

Why has Burnout 35 left black stains on the bottom of a plaster pool and how can you remove them?

This must be an algaecide of some sort possible a low grade of chlorine. Did you follow the instructions EXACTLY? Is this product supposed to settle on algae spots? If not , did you brush it to keep it from clumping and settling on the bottom of the pool? The black stains, possible caused by the product burning the plaster where it settled --- improper use of product. Impossible to know without seeing the stains and finding out just how you used the product. Contact Bioguard for further info.

Can you add chlorine straight in to a pool without a chlorine dispenser?

Sure you can use liquid chlorine and walk around the pool. You can use granular chlorine directly into the pool. If it doesn't disolve before it gets to the bottom you should brush it around so it won't stain. Never add pucks/tabs directly to the pool OR THE SKIMMER. (BAD FOR THE EQUIPMENT) They will sink to the bottom and stain.

Do you need to vacuum a pool if you use chlorine or is chlorine and a net for skimming the top enough?

If there is dirt on the bottom of the pool, it is best to vacuum it out. Organic debris (such as leaves) can cause staining. Brushing the sides and bottom is also important. Algae loves to hide in crevices and brushing strips away its protective slime coating so that the chlorine can kill it.

Why is it important to understand the chemical composition of chlorinating agents used in swimming pools before using them?

Because each different type of chlorine will effect your pH differently. Each type of chlorine also leaves behind different ingredient residuals. For example.. Liquid chlorine leaves behind some salt, tablets leave behind chlorine stabilizer, some shock bags leave behind calcium and other shock bags leave behind chlorine stabilizer. There are many other types... Also, do not ever mix them together. The results could be chemically life threatening and explosive. Bottom the label and really know what you are buying.

What is the correct type of chlorine to add to a color bottom or 3-m coated pool. I was told that trichlor 3 inch tablets in a floater were not acceptable for color botom pools Is this correct?

Well, for one thing, the floater can get hung up on the top step and cause what looks like a rust mark. It also etches the plaster in those areas making the plaster very rough. It can also bleach out the color and any small pieces that are left, as the large tab dissolves, can fall out of the floater slots. There is no "correct" type of chlorine - you just have to be careful in their use. Granular chlor. , which is broadcast over the water, can, if it gets damp, clump up and those clumps will go directly to the bottom of the pool - sitting there until they disappear. So, that leaves 12.5% liquid chlorine. I would avoid other chlorines that are on the market unless they are recommended in your area. ( Calcium chloride, cal-hypo, lithium --- these are low grade chlorine compounds). One way to introduce large or "J" tabs to the pool water is to add an in line tab feeder to the system being careful to install it as per manufacturer's instructions. If you have copper plumbing DO NOT INSTALL THIS DEVICE. Probably the best, at the present time, would be to install a salt system. k
