Bricks can make an attractive surface for the area surrounding your pool. But if your bricks get dirty or covered in mildew, they'll be slippery and prone to deterioration. Cleaning and sealing the bricks on a regular basis is a smart way to prevent excessive dirt buildup and water damage. Your bricks will last longer and look better, too.
Rinse the bricks surrounding your pool with water from a garden hose. Direct the stream away from the pool, to keep dirt out of the water.
Mix a solution of 1 part bleach to 4 parts water in a bucket. Dip your scrub brush in the solution and scrub the bricks, a small area at a time. Rinse the area after you've finished scrubbing, and move onto the next area. Continue until you clean all the bricks.
Let the bricks dry thoroughly.
Pour brick sealant into a pump sprayer and apply an even layer over the clean, dry bricks. Let the bricks dry before walking on them.
