The Process of No Drain Acid Washing Your Pool

“No drain acid wash” in the process of pool plaster and tile surface cleaning and descaling without draining the pool of all its water. In this process, the pH of the pool water is reduced to a very acidic level, close to 1.0, and an alkaline level close to zero.

At this point, the pool surface is brushed multiple times and for several days, to loosen and release scale and dirt. After the final day, the pool pH is reversed, and the water chemistry returns to a balanced, safe pH level.

The process of pH adjustment during a no-drain acid wash changes the pool into a corrosive environment. A corrosive pool environment eats away at the soft materials attached to the pool surfaces and creates surface staining. Normally, a corrosive environment puts your pool at risk for surface damage, but limiting the amount of time the pool is at this pH level reduces the potential for damage to a lesser risk.

Ideal External Conditions for a No Drain Wash

No drain acid washing is a science, one that takes consideration and planning for the proper results. There are environmental conditions that will best suit the process as well as the preparation needed on the homeowner’s part to protect pool equipment and accessories.

Ideal preparation and conditions for no drain acid wash include:

  • Removal of pool cleaner equipment, accessories, rails, lights, and ladder
  • The pool pump is turned off, and the timer paused
  • The pool is cleaned thoroughly the week and days before the acid wash
  • Weather conditions include clear skies and lower temperatures for best results
