Remove Ugly Swimming Pool Stains With Our Acid Wash Service
Many of our customers have issues with staining at the bottom of their pools or have pools that have been taken over by algae due to poor winterizing, stagnant water, or lack of pool care.
An acid wash service often referred to as “drain & clean”, can help remove swimming pool stains. Acid washing removes a thin layer of your plaster, gunite, or Pebble-Tec to reveal a fresh pool surface. This process removes algae, minerals, chlorine, and even dirt stains from your pool. Read specifics about damaging algae here.
If your pool was poorly maintained in the past or had stagnant water turn into an algae bloom, algae and phosphates can become embedded in your pool’s finish. An acid wash removes any algae or phosphates that pool chemicals have missed. When finished, the acid wash process gives your pool a fresh finish and sparkling clear water.
Will An Acid Wash Harm My Pool?
Acid wash is applied to etch off a very thin layer of plaster, gunite, or Pebble-Tec. The acid is then carefully removed and the pool is filled, with no harm to the surface of your pool. On average, pool owners have a professional acid wash their pool once a year, or whenever stains appear. Keep in mind that an acid wash should not be done more than once per year, since it does speed up the need to resurface a pool.
Swimming Pool Acid Wash Is Best Done By Professionals
Acid Washing should only be done by professional pool service technicians. Muriatic Acid is a dangerous substance that can be hazardous to your health. Premier Pool Service technicians are expertly trained to work with this material and have all the tools necessary to safely drain & clean your pool, as well as neutralize and pump out the wastewater. Don’t tackle an acid wash yourself. It can ruin the interior of your pool and be a costly repair job if done improperly. Add acid wash to your pool service.
