Kool Decking

braindeadSeptember 28, 2010

We had Kool Decking installed as the surface around our pool and we are now finding that all the leaves that fall during a rain are staining the deck. Any suggestions on how to clean the stains with the least trouble and not harming the surface? Our PB suggested making a paste of dry Cascade and scrubbing.

I'd also like to know any other solutions you might have to prevent the staining (i.e., can any type sealer be put on the Kool Decking)?

Thanks for any input!

Most concrete cleaners will work, and a little soap and water works well for basic cleaning. Cascade, dawn dish soap, tide in water ect. Just dont get to much in pool.

I wouldnt seal it, you will lose the Kool part of your kool decking as it wont absorb water well.

THANK YOU!! I went to the link and ordered the cleaner. I REALLY appreciate the info, my PB only recommended Cascade and I need something stronger for leaf stains.
