How Does Acid Washing Pool Plaster Clean My Pool?

If the chemical levels in your pool have been out of balance for a long period of time, your pool may develop stains or discoloration on its plaster or concrete surfaces. Acid washing is a method of deep-cleaning your pool that uses muriatic acid to remove a very thin layer of plaster from the surface of the walls or floor. Along with the plaster, it also removes stains from minerals, dirt, algae, and chlorine. When complete, the process reveals a fresh new layer of plaster, and your pool will look as good as new. Our team can acid wash plaster, concrete, and gunite pools, but we do not recommend acid washing for vinyl-lined or above-ground pools. We also don’t recommend frequent or repeated pool acid washing as it will break down the surface of the pool and cause damage and degradation.

How to Know When Your Pool Needs an Acid Wash

If your pool has stains or discoloration, it may need an acid wash. We will likely recommend more conservative stain removal methods first to protect your pool from degradation. If conservative methods are ineffective, we will recommend acid washing. There are several signs it is time to acid wash inground pools. These signs include:

  • Algae or mildew growth on the walls or floor.
  • Discoloration, especially red, pink, or black stains.
  • Blue or green stains.
  • Hard water stains.
  • Patches of faded plaster or concrete.

We also recommend acid washing a pool before any pool resurfacing or pool restoration services are performed, and it is an important step in the installation of new swimming pools.

Risks of an Acid Wash Without Draining the Pool

We do not recommend that anyone acid wash a pool without draining it first. When you perform an acid wash without draining a pool, you risk that streaks from the acid can cause uneven etching on the pool’s surface, which is irreversible. The process also won’t be as effective, so it may end up being a waste of time and money.
