When will I know if my pool needs to be drained and washed with acid?
The simplest way to determine if your pool needs an acid wash is when you see discoloring and stains. Several things could change the color of your swimming pool such as pebble, leaves, calcium buildup and rust, copper from the heater, but if you see stains on your pool, then it may be time for an acid wash.
Benefits of an acid wash
An acid wash is commonly used for cleaning stains off plaster pool walls. An acid wash removes scale and calcium from the pool. It also removes stains caused by pool chemicals and embedded algae contamination. Acid wash restores pool plaster topcoats to their former luster and smoothness. It gives the pool a clean look.
How often do you recommend an Acid Wash?
We recommend a consistent and regular weekly or monthly pool cleaning service so algae and stains don’t build up in your pool. An acid wash should be done only as needed. A professional needs to make sure that the plaster is in good enough condition to perform an acid wash.
