Why, yes, you should! Or, hire us to do it for you! Our crews do routine cleaning on a pool closing appointment. The exception is if you’ve recently had an entire tree’s worth of leaves fall into your pool. That would require a bit of extra time and attention, which you can do, or we can for a service fee…you do not want to leave leaves in the pool to decompose over the winter. Even if the chlorine helps to break them down, sometimes if a leaf settles to the bottom you will have a reminder brown, orange, or green spot the next year to remind you that a little vac in the fall would have made a difference. We do have remedies if this does accidentally happen to you. In the spring we can acid was a gunite pool. In a vinyl pool sometimes chlorine helps to do the trick of removing a stain, and there are special organic additives that you can add to your water to chemically treat your pool (you can find some of them here: Shop Now)

We are happy to consult on stains in your pool, now or later. Let’s address them sooner than later however. We don’t want them to become any more of a problem than they already are.

When in doubt: Ask the Pool Guy
