Which Issues Can Acid Washing Prevent?

If you never give your pool or spa an acid wash, there could be issues that arise resulting in damage to the pool’s flooring, tile, equipment issues, and water quality. Acid washing can prevent the below issues from occurring:
  • NExcessive algae growth
  • NScale buildup
  • NStains and discoloration on the floor and walls
  • NPoor water quality
  • NEquipment malfunctioning
  • NReduced aesthetic appearance
  • NIncreased maintenance costs

How Often Does My Pool Need Acid Washing?

Most pools need an acid washing once 5 years, sometimes less frequently, depending on how often you use the pool. If you notice stains and scale buildup, algae buildup, or haven’t used your pool in several months or longer, it could be beneficial to receive an acid wash. Our team can evaluate the conditions of your pool and/or spa and test the water quality to determine if an acid wash is needed.

What To Expect

When you schedule an acid wash for your pool/spa, a member of our team will arrive on your property with all the supplies they need. They will drain the pool of all the water and once you have an empty pool, will brush the entire area (floor, tiles, walls) with a diluted acid content. Once they are done, your pool will be re-filled.

The pool water will be tested to ensure the chemicals are balanced and additional chemicals will be added if needed.

The acid washing process can take several hours to ensure your pool receives a thoroughly deep clean.

In addition to acid washing, we also provide weekly cleaning services, where our team provides once-per-week treatment and maintenance to keep your pool in the best shape possible. This includes:

  • NInspect equipment
  • NAdjust chemicals

Do I Need To Be Home During Acid Washing?

It can be helpful if you are home during the first acid washing appointment so that we can obtain access to the pool/spa area. After the first acid wash, you do not need to be home during any other pool cleanings (such as weekly pool cleanings), as our pool technicians can then access your pool/spa independently and have all the cleaning supplies they need. If they have questions or concerns about your pool, they will contact you or leave a service report.

Can I Acid Wash the Pool Myself?

It is highly recommended to hire a professional pool cleaning company to perform an acid wash of your pool and spa. The process requires the proper equipment (rubber boots, a thin layer of muriatic acid or soda ash added to the water, a pressure washer), and expertise to avoid damaging the pool’s surface, storm drain, and equipment.
