Since your pool can be a costly investment, you’ll likely want to give it the best maintenance and service possible. With the help of general maintenance techniques, your pool can remain clean and safe to use over time, but is that enough to ensure that it never deteriorates? With an acid wash to deep clean every inch of your pool’s interior, you can sustain the safety and integrity of your pool and without the expensive costs that sometimes come with extreme damages or deterioration.
While there is not a set amount of times that your pool needs to be acid washed, it doesn’t hurt to consider it at least once a year or once every other year. By acid washing your pool, it will require completely draining your pool of all its water and rinsing out any dirt or debris that’s lingering in the bottom surface. Once completed, the acid wash solution can be added to the pool’s interiors and left to marinate into the pool’s plaster or interiors and remove heavy debris that an accumulate in the crevices or edges of the pool.
The process of acid washing your pool requires some patience and attention to detail. It’s best to begin this process when you are not in a rush to use your pool right away or when the weather permits a few dry days to allow for adequate cleaning without interference. After the acid solution has been added to the insides of the pool and left to remove the hardened debris, it is then scrubbed and rinsed away through the drainage system several times. This process may need to be repeated a few times to remove deeper or harder stains and debris, depending on the condition of your pool.
Tools and Chemicals Used
Since the acid used to clean the pool is highly toxic when used without precautions, it’s important that you leave the acid wash cleaning process up to the professionals. We apply the acid using specialized techniques that allow us to massage it into the areas of the pool that need it most and without damaging your pool or harming anyone around us. It is recommended that you do not attempt to acid clean a pool on your own, especially with industrial-grade acid cleaning solutions, which can be extremely hazardous when mishandled or used improperly and without caution.
By acid washing your pool, you can drastically enhance the appearance and cleanliness of your pool. Acid washing is intended to remove hard stains that cannot otherwise be removed using traditional cleaning methods and can brighten your pool’s interiors. Often times, pool water can attract pests, debris, moss, and other outdoor elements that can leave marks or discoloration in and around the pool’s interiors. To rid your pool of these unwanted or unsightly messes, acid washing can readily remove dark or stained buildup, as well as buildup that has been accumulating for many years – all in one process.
