Once in a while your pool will need a thorough, deep cleaning. Acid washing is an extreme cleaning process that Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. knows how to do. It could be that your pool plaster is very old and stained from algaecides, landscape debris sitting in the pool for a long time, or suffers from neglect of the pool chemistry. An acid wash will strip away a layer of plaster and give a uniform look to the pool finish.

Does My Pool Need an Acid Wash?
Over time, the plaster surface on your pool may become stained with algae and decaying organic material. These discolored spots can ruin the appearance of your pool. The water may be clean, blue, and clear—but that just makes the stains even more visible. No matter how much you scrub it, the stains will remain. What can you do?
Hire Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. to acid wash your pool. Our specially designed mixture of muriatic acid and commercial grade cleaners doesn't just clean the surface: It gets deep down into the plaster itself, taking off a very thin layer and eliminating every last trace of the troublesome stains. Once your pool is stained, this is the only pool cleaning technique that's proven to turn back the clock—to the day your pool was first installed.
If you think your pool might need acid washing, but you're not 100% sure, give us a call for a pool inspection. Our experts will run a series of tests to determine the nature and depth of your stains. Sometimes, a chlorine solution will do the trick, and you can eliminate the stains without a full acid treatment. Leave it to us for an honest appraisal. We’ll determine the quickest and most economical method to make your stain-related stress a thing of the past. Call us now to book an appointment!

Experienced Acid Washing Specialists
Unlike other methods of pool cleaning, acid washing requires an expert's knowledge of chemistry. To get the right combination of elements for your pool, we mix our own cleaning supplies. This gives us an extra level of control and cleaning power that other companies cannot compete with.
Rest assured, the pool contractors on our crew are licensed and trained to handle these substances. Muriatic acid, the primary chemical used in our standard acid washing service, is highly corrosive. As professionals, we strictly adhere to all industry regulations, and implement in-house safety practices and protocols to ensure your pool stays in tip-top shape.
We also run an online shop where you can purchase pool care chemicals for affordable prices. Feel free to contact our staff for professional advice on how to properly administer these products with your (and your pool’s) safety in mind.
With years of experience, our acid washing specialists will quickly diagnose your pool problem and create a custom-tailored solution for your pool. Call us now to learn more and book an appointment with the region's most trusted pool cleaners.
Acid Washing and Pool Maintenance: The Professional Difference
Acid washing works by removing a thin layer of your pool’s plaster surface. Too high a concentration of the acid will eat away at the outer layer quickly, ultimately decreasing your pool’s overall lifespan. It’s essential to dilute the acid precisely to protect the plaster. Too much acid will cause damage to your pool. Too little will leave the stains untouched. Unlike other companies, we don’t overuse chemicals. We rely on our skills instead of the strength of the acid. That’s why we always administer the mildest solution possible. We mix our acid washes with diligence and care to protect your plaster as much as possible. We then scrub stains by hand to ensure only a razor-thin layer of plaster comes off—only what’s absolutely necessary to make your pool clean and stain-free.
Frequent Acid Washing Will Improve Your Pool
As a general rule, we suggest that you acid wash your pool at least once a year. However, depending on the conditions that your pool is subject to, it may require more frequent cleaning. Especially if the pH levels are incorrect or if you're not maintaining it on a regular basis. If the water in your pool becomes cloudy and you can't get it clean, call us to take a closer look.
In fact, although acid washing requires the use of dangerous chemicals like muriatic acid, it actually lessens your need for chemicals throughout the rest of the year. This not only improves the quality of your pool's water and improves the health of swimmers, but it also lowers your environmental impact in the long run.

Acid Washing for Colored Plaster Pools
Reveal the Full Beauty of Colored Plaster
Pool plaster is commonly installed as a white surface. However, if you’re willing to increase your budget, you can add a colored aggregate to the plaster and achieve underwater hues of blue, grey, or even red. Colored plaster is a fairly costly upgrade from standard plasters, however, a multi-colored surface glimmering beneath crystal-clear pool water is a beautiful sight to behold and often worth the extra dollars. Unfortunately, the process of installing colored plaster causes a dull, cement haze to cover the surface of the pool, effectively hiding the stunning colors that you paid so dearly to see. What do you do? The fastest way to reveal those masked colors in all their glory is a professional acid wash. Without chemicals, it may take up to 3 years for those bright colors to shine through.
Acid washing will immediately take off that unsightly concrete and reveal the beauty underneath. After one acid wash, you should see instant results. Our technicians take great care to protect the integrity of new plaster installations. You can depend on us to use a mild acid solution, combined with extensive manual brushing, to ensure the plaster stays strong for a lifetime of use.
