First Acid Wash
What Is Acid Washing?
Many swimming pools can become stained and even disfigured from things such as rain, pool equipment, and particles of metal from screws to bobby pins that when left in the pool cause hideous rust stains. Over time your plaster will also fade from UV rays and harsh pool chemicals. While some pool companies suggest replastering the pool to make it look new again, we provide acid washing that is less extensive and costly, to return your pool to like-new condition at a fraction of the price. Why spend your free hours in the hot sun handling dangerous chemicals when you can leave the hard work to our experienced and trained pool cleaners at Katy Swimming Pool Services
Chlorine Bath vs Acid Washing
Generally, when you have a pool that has turned green your pool requires a chemical bath that like acid washing requires draining the pool water. Then we perform a chlorine bath, using gallons of chlorine not muriatic acid A chlorine bath will kill the bacteria and disinfect the pool but it will not remove stains so if you have stained your pool must be acid washed. The best way to prevent your pool from turning green on staining is with weekly pool cleaning.
Our Deep Cleaning Pool Process
Acid washing your pool is a tedious chore that no Katy homeowner wants to attempt themselves. This involves many steps done over the course of one to two days. When we acid wash your pool, we will start by completely draining the water from the pool then removing any debris from the bottom of the pool such as dirt, dust, and sand that skimmers don’t remove. Next, we create an acid solution that is half water mixed with muriatic acid. In some instances, if the stain has been left on the plaster for a considerable amount of time, we have to use a stronger solution to restore the plaster to its original color. Using the acid solution, we pour it down the sides of the walls of the empty pool small sections at a time so we can methodically scrub every surface of the pool including the walls and bottom with a brush before power washing. Depending on the condition of the plaster we may have to repeat the process two or three times before the stains are lifted. Since acid washing only takes off the top layer of the plaster you can have this process done multiple times before having to replaster the pool. On average your pool's plaster will last 15 to 25 years even with routine acid washing. We recommend having your pool drained every few years and pairing it with acid washing so your pool continues to look fresh and clean providing you years of memories.
