Safety at all times
If muriatic acid is in direct contact with the human body, it can be extremely dangerous. Amongst the negative effects that it can have on a person are: second degree burns, irreversible eye damage and corrosive mucous membranes. That is why this procedure requires a strict safety protocol at all times. Our crew wear specialized gear, for head to toe, at all time. We make sure to delimit the pool with yellow tape, so that nobody goes near. Another really important safety measure if the rinse afterwards. We use an industrial high pressure hose for these circumstances. We are very precautious to insure that no acid residues are left in the pool tiles after we have left.
A downside of acid wash that you should consider is that it’s a procedure that should not be done on a regular basis. At Tulsa Pool Cleaner we recommend to do this procedure once every five years. Otherwise, the acid can start damaging the plaster coating on the inside of the pool and it will affect your tiles. Another inconvenience to consider is that once the acid wash is done, it cannot be used for 24 hours. Which is why we like to recommend to our clients to schedule their acid wash during the winter season.
