Your pool could be covered in leaves, debris and dirt. It is possible to see rust stains on your pool that will need to be removed before you can continue. You can endanger your project if even the smallest residue is left behind. After you have cleared away most of the debris, it is a good idea for you to pressure wash your pool to get rid of any algae or stains.
