But wait, what is an acid wash? Before you decide you have it done, this article will tell you the basic things about acid wash – what it is, why you need it, and when you should use it.

What is an acid wash?

An acid wash is the use of hydrochloric acid to remove stains brought about by chemicals or organic materials in order to clean the swimming pool interior surface. There are a lot of reasons to own a pool. And there are also a lot of reasons why you need to maintain it.

Why do you need an acid wash?

Many pools will build up a layer of calcium, copper and other chemical barriers that stain and discolor the pool surface. An acid wash can remove these stains and in many cases bring a discolored pool back closer to what the surface would look like as new. It rejuvenates a pool’s appearance so that it will look new again.

What are the advantages of an acid wash?

An acid wash will allow the pool to look clean and refreshed. It will also help in performing any repairs to match the existing surface closer to the newly repaired area/s.

How to do an acid wash?

An acid wash is done by using a specifically concentrated mixture of Hydrochloric Acid and water and is applied by hand around the pool with a blanketing effect. Professionals or experts should conduct an acid wash to make a big difference to the pool’s appearance. If the acid wash is done by lesser or non experienced persons, the pool surface may be damaged and could end up looking worse than before it was acid washed.
