FAQ: Is Wet & Forget safe around the pool?

Wet & Forget works on all outdoor surfaces and this holds true for your swimming pool area. You can apply Wet & Forget to pool surrounds and pool cages. It’s non-caustic, non-acidic and does not contain bleach, so it won’t harm the pH of your pool. Just keep people and pets off the surface until dry. But what happens if the surface gets wet again from the pool? Here is a recent inquiry we receive to help answer that question.

Q: We have a concrete patio around our pool. We just purchased Wet & Forget to use on the patio and have read the application instructions. My question is after we apply it and let it dry will we be able to walk barefoot on the patio when we come out of the pool with wet feet? If not how many days do we have to wait?

A: Once the Wet & Forget has dried on the surface, you can walk on it with no problems. Even if the surface becomes wet after subsequent rains, it is still safe for you as well as any pets. We recommend you keep off of the surface until it’s completely dry after the application of Wet & Forget.

    Will wet and forget PREVENT mold and algae growth on a clean surface? if so, how long will it work?

    1. Wet And Forget

      Wet & Forget properly cleans moss, mold, mildew, and algae stains to the root, rather just what’s on the surface. We normally see surfaces remaining clean for a year or much longer.
