Why Should You Acid Wash Your Pool?

Over time, you may notice stains or discolored surfaces in your pool. While more minor stains and discoloration can be remedied with a good scrub, more severe stains and areas of discoloration can only be removed using an acid wash. In addition, it is beneficial for pools to be acid washed as the process will also remove hard water and algae growth.

What is a Pool Acid Wash?

In most cases, an acid wash is performed on Pebble Tec or plaster and the following steps are used:

Step 1: The pool is drained.

Step 2: All sides of the pool are scrubbed.

Step 3: Muriatic acid and water are applied to remove a very thin coat of the pool’s surface using an acid brush.

Step 4: The residue is neutralized with soda ash.

Step 5: The pool is rinsed and 100% safe for refill.

How Often Should You Have Your Pool Acid Washed?

Because an acid wash removes a very thin layer from the pool’s surface, it’s important to use this process seldomly and only when needed, not yearly. Too many treatments may lead to a need to resurface your pool. We recommend that pools with thin surfaces not be acid washed as it may lead to further damage.

In short, we recommend allowing our Coachella Valley pool acid wash team to assess your pool’s condition so we can recommend the most effective, safe services to get your pool in pristine condition once again.
