Remove Ugly Swimming Pool Stains With Our Acid Wash Service

swimming pool acid washMany of our customers have issues with staining at the bottom of their pools, or have pools that have become 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 pools stains. Acid washing removes a thin layer of your plaster, gunite or Pebble-Tec to reveal a fresh pool surface. This process removes algae, mineral, chlorine and even dirt stains from the bottom and sides of your pool. Read specifics about damaging algae here.

If your pool was poorly maintained in the past, or had stagnant water which turned into an algae bloom, algae and phosphates can become embedded in your pool’s finish. A swimming pool acid wash removes any algae or phosphates that pool chemicals have missed. When finished, the acid wash process gives your pool a clean, fresh, new finish and clear, sparkling water.

Will An Acid Wash Harm My Pool?

Acid wash is applied to etch or take 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 should include a swimming pool acid wash once a year as pool maintenance,  or to remove stains. Keep in mind that a swimming pool acid wash should not be done more than once per year, since it does speed up the need to re-surface 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 has toxic fumes and can be hazardous. Premier Pool Service technicians are expertly trained to work with this material, and have all the tools and equipment necessary to safely drain & clean your pool, as well as neutralize and pump out the waste water. Don’t tackle an acid wash yourself. It can ruin the interior of your pool and be a costly repair job, if not done properly. Add acid wash to your pool service.
