Can you acid wash a Diamond Brite pool?
Diamond Brite is a brand of plaster that some pool owners use to cover their gunite pools. Over time however, Diamond Brite plaster will become stained from the chemicals used in your pool. These stains can be removed by acid-washing your pool after the water is drained from it.
How often should you acid wash a pool?
Your pool generally only needs an acid-washing every five to seven years if you regularly treat and maintain the water in it, recommends the Bratton Pools website. Acid-washing your pool more often can damage the plaster coating inside the pool because the acid strips away a small layer of it each time you do it.
