Rust in Pool

Rust stains in a pool is never something that should be ignored. Sometimes rust marks are just surface stains from something that has fallen into the pool and sat in one spot causing a rust stain. These type of stains can usually be treated by your local pool shop with specialty pool chemicals.

Other rust stains in your pool are the cause of the pool water coming into contact with the steel work in the concrete of your pool. These type of stains will only grow over time as the rust spreads through the rio bars in your pool. When steel rusts it expands and caused the pool surface to bulge. The longer a problem like this is ignored the worse it will get and will cost your more and more if left untreated.

At Brisbane Pool Repairs and Pressure Cleaning we treat the rust in the pool at root level by first cutting away the pool surface to expose the steel work then we treat the rusted area with specialised preventative treatments to ensure the problem doesn't reoccur or spread after we acid wash the affected area. Once we have treated the rusting steel work in the pool we then apply the finished pool surface.
