In many cases, a pool drain and clean will be a last resort, but sometimes it’s the only way to get your pool looking its best.
Pool draining and cleaning may be necessary if you’ve experienced substantial dirt flooding, long-term algae staining, metal staining, or there’s simply no other way to restore your old, degraded pool surface. In some areas high calcium levels in regular tap water mean that a pool drain and clean is occasionally necessary to keep your pool looking good.
Only experienced pool professionals like Poolwerx should undertake a pool drain and clean.
Our service technicians are happy to visit your pool and determine if it is suitable for a cleaning and how well the surface will respond.
In extreme cases, such as metal staining or dirt flooding, your pool may need to be acid washed. Using a diluted acid solution, your Poolwerx technician will remove a very thin layer of pool surface to expose a fresh, clean layer. Due to the nature of this process, an acid wash should always be a last resort. Your service technician will help you decide if this level of service is required.
