Clean Pool Liners and Pool Walls

If you have an above-ground pool, over the summer your pool liner might have developed a gross, slimy layer of green algae or mold and mildew along the water line. The outside wall of you pool can also fall victim to moss, lichen, black algae, green algae, or mold and mildew.

In-ground pools can also develop algae or mold and mildew infestations along the water line and along the edge of the pool, where abundant moisture encourages the growth of these organisms.

Caustic chemicals such as bleach can harm your pool liner and can disrupt your pool water’s pH, and just scrubbing the growths off is messy, time-consuming, and results in them coming right back. Wet & Forget Outdoor is the easy way to get rid of ugly growths at the water line, around the edge of your pool, and on the outside wall of your above-ground pool. Wet & Forget Outdoor’s gentle, non-caustic formula is safe to use on any pool liner and won’t harm your in-ground pool tiles. And because Wet & Forget Outdoor is nearly pH neutral, the overspray won’t change your pool’s pH.

Here’s how to eliminate ugly growths in and around your pool the easy way with Wet & Forget Outdoor Concentrate:

To wipe out growths at the water line:

  1. Lower the water level until the whole stain is exposed to the air.
  2. Allow the stained area to dry completely.
  3. Mix 1 part Wet & Forget Outdoor with 5 parts water in a pump-up style garden sprayer.
  4. Spray the affected area with the diluted Wet & Forget Outdoor at a time that allows 4 to 5 hours’ drying time before the chance of rain.
  5. Allow at least 4 to 5 hours for the area to dry completely. Raise the pool’s water level back to the desired level.

To eliminate growths on the outside walls of above-ground pools:

  1. Mix 1 part Wet & Forget Outdoor with 5 parts water in a pump-up style garden sprayer.
  2. Spray the affected area with the diluted Wet & Forget Outdoor at a time that allows 4 to 5 hours’ drying time before the chance of rain.
  3. Walk away, and let Wet & Forget Outdoor do the work for you!
  4. Re-treat once a year or at the first sign of re-growth.

To eliminate moss, saturate the moss thoroughly so that the Wet & Forget can penetrate the moss’s root-like structures. For lichen, follow these special instructions.

Pool Decks and Surrounds

Poolside decks are the perfect place to relax after a cool swim on a hot summer day. But your pool deck or surround can also fall victim to moss, lichen, algae, or mold and mildew growth, which can wreck its appearance, make it dangerously slippery and, in the case of moss and lichen, even permanently damage some surfaces. Cleaning with bleach means scrubbing and rinsing, and you risk damaging some types of decking with caustic chemicals or disrupting your pool’s pH. Pressure washing is a hassle, makes a big mess, and can increase wear and tear on your deck’s surface.

Wet & Forget Outdoor eliminates ugly, destructive growths on your pool deck or surround with no scrubbing, bleach or pressure washing needed. Just spray and leave! Wet & Forget Outdoor’s gentle formula is safe to use on all types of decking, and it won’t increase wear and tear or affect your pool’s pH with overspray. Best of all, Wet & Forget Outdoor keeps working with the wind and rain even after stains have disappeared, keeping them away for a year or more in most cases. Now you can get back to enjoying your poolside deck, instead of cleaning it! Wet & Forget Outdoor even eliminates mold and mildew on your deck umbrellas.

To eliminate growths on pool decks or surrounds:

  1. Connect the Wet & Forget Hose End product to your garden hose. Attach the fan sprayer tip to the product. Turn the water spigot on.
  2. Turn the sprayer dial to the “ON” setting and spray the affected area with the diluted Wet & Forget Outdoor at a time that allows 4 to 5 hours’ drying time before the chance of rain.
