Stains from algae and other organic matter make a pool look unsanitary even when it isn’t. An acid wash makes plaster and Pebble Tech pools look new again. It is a highly effective treatment for algae stains on both pool types, and can minimize mineral stains on Pebble Tech walls.

However, an acid wash is not a solution for mineral stains at the water line, which require a bead blasting typically.


An acid wash uses muriatic acid, an extremely harsh chemical that requires the expertise of a professional pool technician. A Deckhand Pool Care tech drains your pool using an electric pump, typically overnight. The tech returns the next day to perform the acid cleaning treatment, which removes the surface layer of plaster or Pebble Tech, revealing a fresh, clean surface.

Finally, the tech fills the pool and lets the pump run then balancing the pool water’s chemicals.

You'll see a dramatic difference in your swimming pool.
