Pool Acid Wash Service

At Finn’s Pool we know that an “acid wash” is a deep cleaning process that is used to remove tough stains, mineral buildup, and other contaminants from the surface of a pool. This process is also known as “drain and clean” or “chemical wash.”

It is an effective solution for restoring the appearance and functionality of your pool, especially when other cleaning methods have not worked. All processes are conducted in accordance with Florida State’s Public swimming pools’ public health guidelines.



Removes Tough Stains

Over time, your pool may develop tough stains that are difficult to remove with regular cleaning methods. Acid wash effectively removes these stains, restoring the look of your pool.


Removes Calcium & Mineral Buildup

Calcium and mineral buildup can cause stains and damage to your pool’s surface. Acid wash removes this buildup, leaving your pool looking clean and healthy. Learn more about the impact of calcium in our article about the effects of high and low calcium hardness in your pool.


Reduces Algae Growth

The algae growth can lead to unhealthy conditions in your pool. Acid wash helps to kill and remove algae, reducing the likelihood of future growth. For a more comprehensive understanding of how to prevent and deal with algae, you can read our guide on algae prevention and removal in your pool.


Increases the Life of Your Pool

By removing tough stains, algae growth, and mineral buildup, the acid wash helps to increase the lifespan of your pool and its components.


The Acid Wash Process

1. Draining the Pool

The first step in the acid wash process is to drain the pool completely. This ensures that the entire surface of the pool is exposed and can be effectively cleaned.

2. Applying Acid Solution

Next, an acid solution is applied to the surface of the pool. This solution is specifically designed to break down tough stains, mineral buildup, and algae. The acid solution should be applied carefully and evenly, taking care not to splash the solution on yourself or others, or cause any damage to the surrounding area.

3. Agitation and Rinsing

The acid solution is then agitated using specialized tools to ensure that it penetrates all of the affected areas. The solution is then rinsed away, leaving the pool surface clean and free of contaminants.

4. Neutralizing the Surface

After the acid solution has been rinsed away, the surface of the pool is neutralized with a neutralizing solution to restore its pH balance. This step is crucial in order to ensure that the pool water is safe for swimming and will not damage the pool surface or equipment.

5. Refilling the Pool

The final step in the acid wash process is to refill the pool with fresh water. This is done to ensure that the pool is free of any residual acid or contaminants, and to bring the water level back to normal. Once the pool is refilled, it is ready for use.

6. Professional Technicians

All of our technicians are fully trained and certified in the acid wash process. They are equipped with the latest tools and techniques and have the expertise to restore the look of your pool.
