Acid washing is a process that can be used to clean and remove stains from the sides and bottom of an in-ground pool. Specifically, this is done through the use of muriatic acid, water, a scrubbing brush, and a neutralizing soda ash. If you have an in-ground pool that has seen better days, you may want to consider having professional acid washing done for a number of reasons. Here are 3 Main Benefits of Acid Washing Your In-Ground Pool.
Add Resale Value/Appeal
For starters, many homeowners who are looking to sell their homes in the near future choose to have acid washing done as a means of improving their potential resale value and cosmetic appeal. After all, acid washing can remove unsightly stains that may otherwise turn potential home buyers off from making an offer on the home.
Remove Stains and Calcium Deposits
Even if you aren’t thinking about selling in the near future, your pool could still benefit from an acid wash if the sides and bottom of the pool are stained or have stubborn calcium deposits you haven’t been able to remove with scrubbing and cleaning alone. With acid washing services, you can get your pool looking like new. Acid washing can also help to reduce your pool’s risk of developing an algae bloom.
Save Money on Replastering
Sometimes, homeowners make the mistaken assumption that stained pool walls need to be replastered. This can be an extremely expensive repair. What many homeowners don’t realize is that acid washing could negate the need for you to replaster your pool, saving you hundreds or potentially thousands of dollars. Of course, pools with brittle and thin plaster may not be the best candidate for acid washing, so it’s important to consult with a professional.
Why Leave Acid Washing to a Professional?
Without the right tools and know-how, acid washing can be done incorrectly and could cause your pool’s plaster to chip or flake. This is why it’s so important to have a professional handle this project for you.
