Chlorinated water can potentially stain your fence. The suggested chlorine level for a swimming pool is 1-3 parts per million. Most city water supplies can have levels that high. Chlorine is a strong chemical that can react with certain materials, including wood, causing discoloration or staining.

If you’re using chlorinated water for activities like sprinkler systems, watering plants, or cleaning, it’s advisable to avoid direct contact with wooden surfaces like fences, especially if they’re untreated or have a porous surface. If chlorinated water does come into contact with your fence, it’s best to rinse it off promptly with clean water to minimize any potential staining.
