Pool Acid Washing, Altamonte Springs, FL
The overall purpose of acid washing is to intentionally remove the first few layers of your pool wall and floor. These layers aren't the plaster, but are layers of trace minerals, algae, sediment, debris, sunblock, and literally anything that could settle and adhere to a plaster surface (which is a lot).
Acid washing is an alternative to re-plastering the entire pool, which is incredibly expensive. Acid washing is far more affordable, cheap, and efficient for 90% of pool cleaning cases.
Over time, lots of different minerals, chemicals, and whatnot get stuck and we use a strong acidic solution to chemically remove the adhered sediment and stains. It's actually super simple. Once the acid solution has been poured into the pool and left for the desired amount of time, we go through and do some mechanical scrubbing to loosen up any debris. Then we add a base solution to balance the pH back to a safe level and then we pump the pool. It is safe, and if the proper chemicals and techniques are used, not harmful at all. The only thing that is burnt or that goes away is the stains on your pool wall, which, in this case, is a good thing, indeed!
Our pool technicians know what they're doing and have received all the training and protocol to work with acidic substances for the safety of themselves, your pool, and the people who swim in your pool.
