You will have a hard time with grime and sediment even when you do your best to prevent them from building up. This is due to how many people will use the pool and how it is exposed to the elements.
Of course, the difficulty and issues present for either residential or commercial pool owners. What makes the real difference is how the pool is handled in the short and long term.
Now, worrying about needing a pool acid wash when you just got your pool is too soon. Should you worry about it after you have had it for several months? Or what about a year or two?
In our experience, pool acid wash isn’t a service you want to perform often. Even if you have your pool with some algae and want to remove it, cleaning should be enough in most cases. You shouldn’t rely on the acid option as it does come with the problem of damaging your finish. Additionally, you have to think about the type of finish you have.
For pools that are painted, this acid washing isn’t the best option. it will remove most of the paint and you can have a negative reaction during the mix. However, fiberglass, vinyl, concrete, and your regular pool resurfacing materials won’t be an impediment. You should be able to have this covered as long as your walls won’t be extremely affected.
How Do We Perform Pool Acid Wash?
You must know there are many things you can do while you are performing it. why do we mention this before jumping to how we get it done? Because some steps may be added based on your needs and how you want our team to handle the process.
To perform the washing, we have to empty or drain the entire pool. it is crucial to check the forecast so we know the pool will be able to dry a bit before we start. However, while we wait for it and drain it slowly, we check for any cracks or serious damage. The acid washing isn’t for repairs, but it sure removes everything that could be covering any damage.
This way, you won’t have to worry about future issues and our members can fix the problems right away. If you decide to have us repair any cracks or other details, this will take longer. We will most likely dedicate a day or several days to the projects depending on your pool’s state.
From there, we will clean the pool with your regular process and work around the acid washing later.
When it is time to apply the chemicals so we can proceed with the main service, we must have everything removed. This includes any waste or dirt that isn’t grime or algae.
Our contractors and members will mix the chemicals and ensure none of them will have negative reactions. The idea is to spray the mix and focus on letting it dry for a bit. More than drying, it should stick to the walls so our team can proceed with the brushing and scrubbing.
Manually, we have to brush the entire wall and remove the algae, grime, and sediment. This is done by multiple people depending on your pool’s size. In most cases, this can be done after a few hours. Then, we determine if a single coat and brushing were enough. If not, we repeat the process to remove the rest of the sediment.
We have to carefully wash off the chemicals and focus on cleaning the pool from them. This alone can take a lot of time with large pools. Nevertheless, we do our best to speed up the process.
Are we done? Almost there. We will let it dry for a bit and see how the pool looks, inspect it, and finally fill it with water again. You will have a pool free of the green look and water annoying you not long ago.
