Over time, mineral deposits, algae growth, and metal can build up, leaving stains. Our process involves draining the pool water level to expose the pool walls. Next, a carefully mixed acid solution is applied in a circular pattern using specialized brushes. This solution gently etches away a thin layer of the pool plaster, effectively removing stains and mineral deposits. Once the cleaning process is complete, we thoroughly rinse the pool to neutralize any remaining acid or cloudy water and ensure it is safe for use. Finally, we refill the pool with clean water, leaving it ready for enjoyment.

How to know if you need acid washing?

Determining when your pool needs acid washing depends on several factors. If you notice stubborn stains that resist traditional cleaning methods, such as scrubbing or chemical treatments, it may be time for an acid wash solution. Mineral deposits can also accumulate over time, causing discoloration and rough patches on the pool’s surface. Additionally, pools with a history of neglect or that have experienced prolonged exposure to hard water may benefit from periodic acid washing to maintain their appearance and structural integrity.

Acid washing effectively removes a variety of stains, including copper stains, metal stains, algae, and mineral deposits. These stains can taint the appearance of your pool but are typically lifted away during the acid-washing process.

When performed by our trained professionals, muriatic acid washing is a safe and effective method for cleaning pool surfaces. We take stringent safety precautions, including wearing protective gear and carefully monitoring the acid’s application and rinsing process to prevent damage to your inground concrete pool. Vinyl liner pools and fiberglass pools should not be treated with acid mixture.

The frequency of acid washing depends on factors such as pool usage, water quality, and maintenance practices. In general, pools may benefit from acid washing every 3-5 years to maintain a clean and smooth surface.

Our technicians prioritize safety during every step of the acid-washing process. We wear protective gear, including gloves and closed-toe shoes, and ensure proper ventilation to minimize exposure to acid fumes.
