What Kind of Acid is Used for Pool Washing?
Muriatic acid is used for professional pool washing because of its ability to break down buildup on surfaces, remove mineral deposits and other types of stains, and leave you with a smooth, sparkling surface that is ready to be enjoyed once more.

When is Acid Wash Necessary?
Pool Acid Washing, also called a drain & clean, becomes necessary if the pool has turned into the "black lagoon". This may occur if the pool has been stagnant for a period of time so that algae has taken over, or is also filled with leaves and debris.
A general rule of thumb for determining the need for an acid wash is - if you can see the bottom of the shallow end floor, then you can [probably] bring it back with chemicals, cleaning and filtering. If the floor is not visible, the cost of the chemicals and labor may exceed the acid wash charge, and will take much longer. Also, extensive algae blooms or neglect will stain plastered pools, making an acid wash desirable.
An acid wash is the purposeful stripping of a thin layer of plaster, exposing fresh plaster beneath. Therefore, it is ill advised to make it an annual event, which will accelerate the need for re-plastering. Most plaster coats (sometimes called whitecoat or marcite) are in excess of 1/2", so a careful acid wash every 5 years won’t hurt.
You may also decide on an acid wash not because of swamp conditions, but just to bring out a brighter, whiter finish. Mineral stains and/or deposits, chlorine stains, even dirt stains... an acid wash is always a dramatic aesthetic improvement to a plastered pool or fountain.
If your pool has had years of algae blooms, and if your pool seems to grow algae overnight or just bloom very easily, and you’ve tried everything else - changing the water and acid washing the surfaces can give you an algae-free summer. Changing the filter media at the same time is also recommended.
Muriatic Acid is a dangerous substance. All personnel should be trained in safety around a drained pool, and those performing the acid wash should wear protective clothing and breathing mask rated for acids. To protect our environment, the acid/water waste should be neutralized with pH neutralizer prior to being pumped to a safe location.
Common Plug Used for Hydrostatic Relief Tubes
If you decide to drain and clean your own pool, make sure to remove the hydrostatic relief plugs as soon as possible, and that the water is pumped to a distant location so that it won’t return beneath the pool. If your pool sits in a topographically low area, or if you have a high-water table, or heavy recent rainfall, be extra careful with managing the hydrostatic pressure under the pool because it can also cause your pool to pop out of the ground. Removing the water from your pool with high Underground water tables, your pool could pop up and “float”. You may also need to check with local water authorities for waste water discharge regulations in your area. If pumping across soil, move the discharge hose regularly as needed, to avoid over saturation and erosion of any area.
