An acid wash becomes critically necessary when the pool turns into a gunk-filled, black mess and one key reason for it is improper winterizing. Generally, we determine if acid washing is the best course of action if the pool floor is not visible from the surface. If it is visible, chemicals, filtering, and some elbow-grease are the way to go.
When and if it is decided that acid washing is inevitable, we will pump the pool, clean any loose debris, and begin the acid washing process. If the calcium or magnesium build-up is at an extraordinary level, the degree of acid treatment used may affect the plaster or painted finish. Please keep in mind that in such circumstances, Aqua Pool takes no responsibility for any damage to the plaster or painted finish that may have been caused during the process.
