Jacksonville pool acid wash
The procedure of acid washing your pool expels unattractive stains because of hard water and algae development. Once your water develops a strange murky or greenish look, it's probable that it needs an acid wash to tidy it up. While you can play out this procedure yourself, it's best to save it for an expert to prevent harm to the plaster surface.
Algae that sits in your pool for quite a long time or more at any given moment may discolor the lining so bad that routine maintenance won't do a thing. Typically, if you can't see the floor, it's time for an acid wash. Another indication that it may need an acid wash how soon algae begins to form after having washed it off. Acid washes stop any small, unnoticeable spores of algae from growing into larger algae spots.
Acid washing requires a complete drainage of your water. After it's drained, you'll need to wet the walls with water. Blend a balance of muriatic and water to splash the sides. With a brush or any kind of scrubber, rub the acidic mixture into the algae-infested areas for around half a minute. Don't let it sit for too long however as this may permanently damage the structure. Using water, rinse off the mixture. This whole process can prove as a tedious one as you might have to repeat this procedure several times depending on how severe the stains are. Thats why it's usually best to sit back, relax, and let us pros do the dirty work.
