If you’ve owned a pool for a few years or so, you may notice it doesn’t have the same gleaning shine that it once had. Maybe you’ve even tried to give it a good thorough cleaning but to no avail.

In such instances, an acid wash may be the ticket you’ve been looking for.

Acid washing is no small undertaking. It’s an extreme measure that shouldn’t only be performed as a last resort to get rid of those tough algaecide stains. If you’ve tried every other trick of the trade and your pool still looks drab, then you may want to consult an expert on acid washing.

What Is Acid Washing?

Acid washing is a deep cleaning process in which an acid mixture is applied to a pool’s surface. It is an incredibly potent form of washing because the acid does more than merely clean the surface. Rather, it strips away a layer of the pool’s plaster. In the process, it reveals a fresh layer that’s never before seen the light of the day: A brand-new layer for a brand-new-looking pool.

Many people are understandably concerned about the risks when they hear that acid washing will remove a layer of their pool’s plaster. Don’t let it worry you too much, though: When performed professionally, acid washing is a safe and effective cleaning method. The amount of plaster removed is microscopic, so an acid wash won’t weaken your pool or damage it. That said, it shouldn’t be performed regularly: once every five or so years is plenty.

What Equipment Does an Acid Wash Require?

Acid washing requires a slew of protective gear, cleaning equipment, and chemical substances, including: 

What Pools Are Safe to Acid Wash?

In-ground pools made of gunite or concrete are the only ones you should consider acid washing. Do not acid wash vinyl, fiberglass, or above-ground pools. The acid will eat through the lining material, and you’ll most likely have to replace it.

Can I Acid Wash a Pool Myself?

Acid washing is not for the faint of heart. It involves highly corrosive, potential lethal chemicals, as well as toxic fumes. It’s also easy to mess up. If you don’t wash the acid off in time, or apply enough soda ash to neutralize it, it may damage your pool’s surface.

Acid washing can also pose significant environmental concerns, as it can create hazardous runoff waste. Ultimately, it’s best to leave acid washing to the professionals. An expert like ourselves can ensure that the job is done safely and correctly.

Pool maintenance is an essential part of pool ownership. Every swimming pool will require regular maintenance to ensure that its water stays clean and at a healthy pH level. While developing a solid maintenance regimen can be intimidating, it’s not as daunting as it might at first seem.

Overall, pool maintenance consists of three key points:

We’ll walk you through what you need for each of these. Let’s get started!

Keeping the Pool Water Circulating

Still water is dirty water. With a pool, the water needs to have consistent circulation. You don’t want it sitting around stagnant because that can lead to a host of health and safety issues, from cloudy water to algae infestations. Plus, it’s a breeding ground for mosquitoes and other pests.

To maintain good circulation, you’ll need a good pool pump. If you don’t already have one, you need one. It’s worth it.

Our Recommendation: The Pentair Intelliflo VSF

With its variable speed feature, the Intelliflo provides precise control of flow, allowing for greater energy efficiency and optimal circulation. Talk about smart!

In addition to getting a good pump, you’ll also need to clean the pool filter regularly. How to clean it will depend on what type of filter you have: Cartridge, sand, or diatomaceous earth (D.E.). But in general, you should consider cleaning your filter every 1 to 3 months.

To find out more about different brands and types of pool filters, feel free to browse our online shop.

Cleaning the Pool Water

It’s no surprise that you need to clean your pool water regularly. Dust, dirt, and debris will inevitably find their way into the pool, as will leaves and insects. Oils from sunscreen, tanning lotion, and other cosmetics can also pose a contamination risk.

To keep your water clear from such contaminants, we recommend skimming the surface of your pool at least once a week. You’ll need a couple of items:

1.      Pool Skimmer/Rake

We’re lumping skimmers and rakes together since they serve the same purpose: They’re both netted tools that skim the surface to remove dirt and debris. The only difference? Skimmers consist of a single piece of fabric stretched over the frame, whereas rakes have a much deeper net that traps the debris in a pocket. For us, the choice is obvious: The pool rake makes cleaning the pool considerably easier. While rakes may cost a few bucks more, that extra investment will save you a whole lot of time in the future.

Our Recommendation: Pool Style Heavy Duty Leaf Rake

A solid middle-of-the-road option, the Pool Style Heavy Duty Leaf Rake is the goldilocks of leaf rakes: not too pricey, yet still heavy-duty enough for larger-sized pools. Its high-gauge aluminum frame provides durability, while its tapered nylon pocket ensures more efficient debris collection. A great choice for any pool owner.

2.      Telescoping Pole

Telescoping poles attach to leaf rakes, skimmers, and pool brushes, allowing you to extend your reach so that you can clean distant sections of the pool. Ultimately, this is a must-have accessory.

Our Recommendation: Lion Pool 8’–16’ Telescoping Pole

Lion Pool Products—one of the most trusted names in the pool product industry—combines quality craftsmanship with affordability. This bang-for-buck item comes in three sizes: 8-feet, 12-feet, and 16-feet, which makes it a suitable choice for virtually any size of pool.

Pro Tip: Tennis Balls Absorb Oils!

Your new-fangled leaf rake will do just fine removing solid dirt and debris, but liquid oils are a different story. Fortunately, you can throw in a couple of clean tennis balls, which will absorb oily patches left over from sunscreen and other lotions.

Cleaning the Pool Liner

You’ll want to clean not only the surface of your water, but also the surfaces of your pool. By giving the pool liner a good scrub every so often, you’ll stop algae from forming so that you can keep that crystal-clear water you want.

We suggest cleaning your pool liner at the same time as you skim the surface of your water. Do both at least once a week, or more frequently if necessary.

When cleaning, start by scrubbing the walls of your pool before cleaning the floor.

In addition to a telescoping pole (see above), you’ll need a brush:

1.      Wall Brush

A good wall brush will get that algae gone for good. But it’s also important to make sure you buy the right brush for your type of pool. You want a brush with bristles that are soft enough that they won’t damage the pool liner, but not too soft that they don’t clean it thoroughly.

If your pool is lined with vinyl or fiberglass, choose a softer brush with soft nylon bristles, such as the A&B 3ft. Nylon Wall Brush.

If your pool is concrete, consider using a poly- or synthetic-bristle brush with medium hardness. The Pool Style 18’’ Polypropylene Bristle Wall Brush is a good, all-around choice.

If your pool is made of gunite, choose a harder brush with stainless steel bristles. Our pick? The A&B Algae Brush, comes in three different sizes from 6 to 18 inches.

If you’re serious about pool maintenance, you may also want to invest in a pool vacuum, which will make cleaning significantly easier.

Maintaining the Pool Water Chemistry

The last part of pool maintenance? Science! Don’t worry though: This isn’t like science class in high school. You don’t need to be a chemist to understand how to maintain a good chemical balance for your water. All you need is a few essential items, the first being:

Your Water Testing Kit

When it comes to water chemistry, your testing kit will be the number one tool in your arsenal. You’ll be able to check your water’s pH balance, alkalinity, and level of free chlorine, bromine, and other sanitizers. For a comprehensive test kit, we recommend the AquaChek Pro Pool & Spa Test Kit, which comes with 100 test strips.

Once you’ve tested your water, you can start adjusting the pH, alkalinity, and sanitizer bit by bit until you reach the desired levels. For a simple, year-round pool chemical product, we recommend PoolTec Easy Care, which ensures your water maintains a consistent chemical balance for every month of the year.

Opt for Pool Shock

Heavy rain, incline weather, and other external factors can completely disrupt your pool’s chemical balance. That’s where pool shock products come in. They provide a shock to the pool’s system, evening out the chemical composition while strengthening its sanitization levels. Pool shocks are a must-have item, as they work rapidly to prevent the onset of algae infestations.

Our recommendation? Shockwave is a fast-acting and affordable solution that keeps your water looking its best.

A pool without a pool filter is not a sight you want to see. Filters rid your swimming pool of bacteria, dirt, and debris, which in turn keeps your water nice and clear. Not to mention, they protect swimmers from getting sick too.

It’s a crucial element of the swimming pool experience. Without one, we guarantee your local, public swimming pool would not be a popular spot in your community. Read on to discover the ABCs of pool filters and how to go about choosing one for your backyard pool.

The 3 Types of Pool Filter Systems

There are three main types of pool filtration units that you need to be familiar with.

These are:

Sand Filters

In a nutshell, sand filters are the most commonly used filters in residential pools. The reason for this being that they’re inexpensive and easy to maintain. They may be an ideal choice for the budget-conscious homeowner. The downside is, sand filters are not as effective at catching dirt. What’s more, homeowners get stuck with the tedious task of backwashing.

Cartridge Filters

Cartridge filters, on the other hand, are fast becoming the most popular choice for new pool installations among homeowners, and they’re the units we typically recommend. These bad boys will keep your water looking cleaner—catching particles 2x smaller than sand filters. They’re also extremely compact and easy to clean.

Forget about the dreaded backwashing job. Cartridge filter systems eliminate the need for the task altogether. What’s more, cartridge filters are known to extend the time between cleaning and replacing filter parts. With some models, you’ll only have to clean them once every season.

DE Filters

Finally, DE filters are the Rolls-Royce of pool filtration systems. They’re capable of trapping outrageously tiny particles, using advanced diatomaceous earth technology. Usually, they’re not the go-to option for the average homeowner.  

Choosing and Sizing Your Pool Filter

So, now that you know the kinds of filters out there, you can make an informed decision on the one that’s right for you. But your job’s not done yet! Next, you need to size your filter correctly.

Typically, we recommend oversizing your filter system, and we’ll tell you why! Although buying a bigger filter might seem like a waste of money, it’s actually a great trick to save money in the long run. Oversizing your filter will reduce the stress load on your filter and pump, effectively extending its lifespan. You’ll also cut down on the frequency it needs to be cleaned, which is good news for your to-do list.

If you’re in the market for a new home and you’re thinking about investing in a beautiful new property with a pool, make sure you’re not jumping into anything without a professional pool inspection. Although a pool generally adds to the market value of a home, one that isn’t in good condition can be a money pit.

Home inspectors rarely have the required expertise to assess a pool system properly, and you shouldn’t rely on them alone. It is highly recommended to hire an expert like the Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. for the job. A professional pool inspection should always include a full assessment of the following components.

1. The Entire Pool Deck Area and Its Safety Features

Our pool inspector will first and foremost take a walk around the pool area, taking note of the deck, the coping, and the mastic that connects them both. A good initial walk-around of the pool will allow us to quickly determine if the pool is in good condition or not.

Then, we will check that the pool has the appropriate safety features. Our pool inspector will carefully assess whether the pool area is secure with complete fencing and correctly latching gates.

2. Any Damages to the Pool

This is a big one! Our pool inspector will carefully check the pool from top to bottom. It is probably best for us to empty it to get a grasp of the whole pool truly. We’ll then be able to inspect the pool lining and foundation for any cracks or leaks, or any other kind of damage that could end up causing you trouble.

3. The Pool Hardware

The pool’s hardware will be carefully checked. This means all the ladders, the handrails, the drains, the lights, and anything extra that is connected or a part of your pool. For example, your specific pool might have a diving board or a water feature that might need particular attention.

In the case of a diving board, it is essential to test it to ensure it is adequately secured to the ground and isn’t cracking or weakening. Especially if it’s older and has seen better days, inspection is a must to be sure it doesn’t pose a danger.

4. The Pool Equipment

Finally, the pool’s electrical components will be looked at and assessed. This accounts for the pool filters, pumps, plumbing, heaters, timers, and anything else. We will get back to you with a full report of our findings and easily be able to let you know if the pool is in complete working condition or may need repair.

Folks, it’s time we have a conversation about pool maintenance products.

When it comes to caring for your swimming pool, a little upkeep goes a long way. But no matter what kind of pool you have—whether it’s in-ground or above ground, vinyl-liner or concrete—it will need regular maintenance. And part of that means that you’ll need to make sure you have the right tools for the job.

Fortunately, we at Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. have developed this guide so that you can get all the equipment you need to keep your pool in great shape. If you’re looking to purchase these products, then head on over to our online store today!

Here are our 4 online products you must buy for your pool.

Suction vs. Pressure vs. Robotic Pool Cleaners

Buying a pool vacuum cleaner can be an intimidating experience. With a whole litany of different makes, models, and types available, it can be easy to feel paralyzed by the sheer number of choices.

Fortunately, we’re here to help you make an informed decision!

Here’s our rundown of the three major types of automatic pool cleaners: suction-side, pressure-side, and robotic.

Suction-Side Pool Cleaners

Suction-side pool cleaners use a pool’s suction port to suck up dirt and debris. The pool’s suction allows the cleaner to “pulse” through the water, moving it slowly throughout the pool.

These cleaners are simple, with few mechanical parts, and are a cost-effective option for pool vacuums. However, they’re very energy intensive, and can drive up your electricity bill. They’re also more susceptible to clogging, and require more frequent cleaning, than other types.

Pros

Cons

Our Recommendation: The Zodiac MX8 Elite

Pressure-Side Pool Cleaners

As the name suggests, pressure-side pool cleaners rely on harnessing pressurized water to create suction, picking-up debris, and moving along a pool’s surfaces. The collected debris then moves through the vacuum into an attached filter bag. Pressure-side pool cleaners typically attach to your pool’s return port (rather than the suction port, like a suction cleaner). However, many pressure-side cleaners can also attach to a booster pump, which lets them operate independently of your pump and filter system.

Pros:

Cons:

Our Recommendation: The Polaris Vac-Sweep 360

Robotic Cleaners

Simple, smart, and convenient, robotic cleaners are the gold standard for pool vacuums. Unlike the pressure- and suction-side cleaners, these bad boys don’t connect to your pump and filter system. All they require is a plug-in socket, and they’re good to go.

Like pressure cleaners, robotic cleaners use a filter bag to collect debris, which needs to be cleaned after each use. However, recent years have seen a great variety of different types of robotic cleaners crop up. They range from simple and affordable models to swanky cleaners with jet propulsion, solar power, and four-wheel drive.

Thanks to the automated and programmable interface, robotic cleaners are by far the easiest to use. That said, their more robust build does make them more difficult to repair. Typically, this shouldn’t be a problem: when taken care of, a quality robotic cleaner should last ages. If, however, your robotic cleaner is proving troublesome, it’s best to call an experienced technician like ourselves to fix the problem.

Pros:

Cons:

Our Recommendation: The Dolphin Echo

Keep Your Pool Free of Stains and Discoloration

Pool stain removers are commonly referred to as stain and scale chemicals by the pool industry. Their purpose is to keep minerals and metals dissolved in solution. When these minerals and metals come out of solution, they can stain your pool’s surface and lining. By keeping chemicals properly dissolved, you alleviate these problems. To combat this, we suggest our SeaKlear pool stain remover and Spa Pure pool stain preventer products.

Swiftly Remove Pool Stains with Our Prevention Chemicals

While pool stain removers will swiftly remove discoloration and bring your pool water back to balance, the easiest option is to choose pool stain prevention chemicals.

Choosing stain and scale chemicals also helps your pool’s longevity. It reduces the need for frequent cleaning and maintenance, and wasteful measures like full drainages to remove surface stains.

Without the right guidance, giving your pool a deep clean can be difficult. Without the right equipment? It’s impossible.

Luckily, Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. is able to help you on both fronts. Whether you’re looking for assistance in cleaning your in-ground pool or you’re just looking for the right nylon wall brush for the job, we’re the team for you.

In the interest of saving you a lot of stress, time, and money, we’ve decided to throw together a little primer on keeping your pool clean.

The Importance of Keeping Your Pool Clean

There are few things as wonderful as having a pool in the comfort of your own home. It is a luxury not everyone is fortunate enough to enjoy. With the many enjoyments that come from a backyard pool comes a whole lot of responsibility.

The high temperatures and steady sunshine of Delray Beach make it one of the perfect pool communities in America. This climate of ours also makes any pool the perfect breeding ground for the many micro-organisms and bacteria that can compromise a pool’s health.

It sounds a like a cruel joke but it’s true!

That’s why any pool, whether it is used regularly or not, requires regular cleaning.

Cleaning a pool isn’t rocket science but it also isn’t as simple as scrubbing the railings with a cloth. There are many tasks, but not all of them need to be carried out on a weekly—or even biweekly—basis.

One relatively simple weekly task is skimming. With a leaf skimmer, you or your pool doctor can simply skim the surface of the pool’s water, removing leaves, debris, insects, and any other floating object. Having a decent leaf skimmer is essential. Thankfully, they’re also quite affordable.

Clean Your Pool Filter!

Checking your pool’s filter is another essential weekly task. All the water that’s pumped into your pool has to first pass through the filter, which acts as a barrier for unwanted contaminants. Without a clean pool filter, small bits of debris and bacteria will find their way into your pool water. It won’t take long for that pool to become unsuitable for swimming in! Pool filters such as the Jandy – CS Cartridge are easy to clean, and they’re perfect for most residential pools.

Acid Washing Your Delray Beach Pool

Every so often—once a year, or every several years—you might need to give your pool a really deep clean. The deepest clean imaginable comes from acid washing your pool.

Over time, you might notice that your pool’s plaster has changed color. Maybe it has turned from white to blue or even gray. You might even drain your pool to try to scrub these sickly stains from the plaster, but to no avail.

To remove these stains from your pool, you need to acid wash your pool. During this process, your pool is drained and scrubbed. After your pool has been scrubbed down, muriatic acid is applied to the plaster’s surfaces. This type of acid is strong––so strong in fact that it will remove all these stains, and the entire topcoat of plaster along with it.

Pool Cleaning by Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc.

Acid washing is one of the pool cleaning tasks that many homeowners don’t feel comfortable carrying out on their own. If you’re looking to rid your pool of unwanted green algae, or you’re just looking to give your pool a fresh clean, call Palm Beach Pool Doctor, Inc. and ask about our cleaning services!
