Do you need to know how to clean pool tile muriatic acid? Take it easy, we will give you the steps for to do that. Just read on.
Pool tiles can be washed with muriatic acid.
This needs a lot of work and the use of powerful and dangerous chemicals.
However, it is necessary to do this if the pool is too dirty or infested with algae.
If you can still see the bottom of your pool the chemicals will clean it, but if this is not the case you need to perform an acid wash.
Although this is a job that should be done by professionals, you can do it yourself if you follow the safety precautions.
- Empty the pool. Remove leaves, algae and other debris from the bottom of the pool after emptying it.
- Wear protective clothing: rubber boots, safety goggles, acid-filtering respirator and gloves.
- Pour 1 gallon of muriatic acid into 1 gallon of water (in a plastic bucket). Be careful not to add water to the acid.
- Position the garden hose so that the water flows down over a portion of the tiles at the deep end of the pool.
- Apply the acid to the tile with a watering can, apply the acid to the grout with the brush and scrub the tile.
- Move the hose to the next section of tile and repeat the process until all tiles are cleaned.
- Mix the soda ash and foaming acid mixture in the bottom of the pool. This will neutralize the acid, so it will be removed from the pool.
- Now you are going to pump the water and the neutralized acid out of the pool, rinse, pump again and refill the pool.
- Rinse your boots, protective equipment and pool brush to remove the acid from them before storing them.
Dispose of unused muriatic acid at the nearest hazardous waste disposal center in accordance with local laws.
