How Do You Know When Your Pool Needs an Acid Wash?

You want a pristine, inviting, and refreshing pool—a swimming oasis that simultaneously adds value to your lifestyle and property. Acid washing your pool is the best way to achieve your goals, but how do you know when this treatment is necessary?

Look for the following signs to tell you when to schedule an acid cleaning for your pool:

  • Stubborn stains: When stains from algae, minerals, or metals become resistant to regular cleaning methods.
  • Discoloration: General discoloration or darkening of your pool’s surface that can’t be remedied with standard cleaning methods.
  • Algae growth: Repeated or severe algae blooms that regular chlorine and shock treatments don’t control, especially if algae has penetrated the surface.
  • Rough texture: Your pool surface feels rougher than usual, indicating scale buildup that standard cleaning won’t remove.
  • Long periods of disuse: When your pool has been neglected or unused for an extended period and has developed extensive staining or algae growth.

Which Pool Types Benefit From Acid Cleaning Treatments?

Will Acid Clear a Green Pool?

When green algae invades your pool, it proliferates and changes what were once clear blue waters into a shade of unappealing green. Using acid to clear a green pool is just one of the benefits of our services.

We can also help you clear up cloudy waters and stained surfaces to greatly diminish stains and give your pool a clean and refreshed appearance.

How Often Should a Pool be Acid Washed?

You should have your pool acid washed at least once every five years to keep it sparkling clean and looking like an inviting place to cool off and enjoy leisurely time with family, guests, and friends.

If you notice an accumulation of stains before your next planned wash, get in touch with our professionals to discuss the specifics and find out what we can do to eradicate them without causing any damage.

Our Empty Pool Cleaning Acid Wash Process

The quickest way to remove stains and other undesirable buildup is to have us come to perform our acid wash process when your pool is being emptied and refilled. While it lacks water, our technicians can get inside and up close with our acidic cleaners and scrubbing brushes to give your pool the deep, glistening clean it deserves.

Once our work is complete, your pool will be ready to be refilled and balanced with the correct chemical solutions right away.

No-Drain Acid Wash

If you prefer to keep the water in your pool while it’s being cleaned, our no-drain acid wash is an affordable way to get the beautifully clean and clear results you’re looking for. It just takes a little longer to complete the process than the traditional drain-and-clean methods we offer.

Please be aware that because of the acidic nature of the cleaning products we use, you won’t be able to swim until we’ve rebalanced the water after completing the cleaning process. Generally, this takes three to five days.

Our technicians will be able to give you an exact turnaround time estimate once we know more details about the shape, size, and pool type you have and how much grime and stain accumulation we’re tasked with removing.

Do-It-Yourself or Hire a Professional for Acid Wash?

Some homeowners and small businesses think that they can acid wash their pools themselves. While it is true that some pool owners are better at it than others, the fact of the matter is that a job of this magnitude needs the professional touch.

Cleverblu LLC offers a comprehensive and all-inclusive pool acid wash service that has served commercial and residential pool owners for decades. We offer an efficient and affordable package for new and existing customers that is unrivaled.

How Do You Wash a Pool?

There are many ways to keep your commercial or residential pool from becoming a health hazard. One way to ensure the cleanliness of your pool is to stick to a regular maintenance schedule customized to the frequency of use and number of regular occupants.

However, even with regular cleaning and maintenance efforts, there will still be times when professional chemicals are needed to remove lurking algae, unsightly films, or an accumulation of buildup.

That’s where our pool washing expertise comes in handy. We’re accustomed to cleaning pools of all shapes, sizes, and compositions and are no strangers to the detailed and thorough work needed to ensure your complete satisfaction.

How Does an Acid Wash Remove Mineral Stains From Your Pool?

During an acid wash, muriatic acid is employed as a cleaning agent to lift mineral stains and remove a thin layer of the surface of your pool’s walls and flooring. It works because of a chemical interaction between the acid and the mineral stain. When regular cleaning methods aren’t making an impact, an acid wash is the proven method you can rely on to eradicate mineral buildup and revitalize your pool’s appearance.

Will A Pool Acid Treatment Remove Rust Stains?

Rust stains in a pool are typically the result of iron in the pool water (which can come from your local water supply), metal objects accidentally left in the pool, or corroding pool equipment. Pool acid treatments effectively remove rust stains from your pool’s surfaces.

The acid penetrates the porous surface of your pool where the rust has formed. As it dissolves the rust, it lifts the stain from the surface, allowing it to be washed away when your pool is rinsed.

Does Acid Washing Your Pool Clear Weathering Effects?

The weather may have more of an impact on your pool’s aesthetics than you think. Exposure to extreme weather conditions and a lifetime outside can add up. Over time, exposure to sunlight, rain, and temperature changes can lead to discoloration, staining, and surface wear. Acid washing your pool is an effective method to counteract the aesthetic deterioration caused by weathering.

Why Does Your Pool Feel Like Sandpaper?

If you notice your pool is starting to lose its smooth, appealing surfaces and is beginning to feel more like sandpaper, it’s likely due to a condition known as scale formation. This issue arises from the buildup of minerals on your pool’s surfaces, particularly calcium carbonate.

Tackle Calcium Deposits With Targeted Acid Washing

As your pool ages or your water’s pH increases, calcium deposits can be a natural consequence that builds up on the side of your pool and impacts your swimming experience. Unsightly stains and buildup detract from your pool’s aesthetic appeal but can also cause damage to its surface and structure. Targeted acid washing is an effective solution for restoring the pristine look of your pool and removing hard water and calcium buildup.

Our team offers targeted solutions using diluted and muriatic acid to address affected areas and dissolve the buildup without harming the underlying surface of your pool. We can help you extend the longevity of your pool and optimize its performance. Our treatments are designed to make your pool more enjoyable while safeguarding its beauty and functionality.

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.
