Is It Ok to Pressure Wash a Pool?

Your pool is your sanctuary. It’s your place to relax, let go of all your responsibilities and just be. It’s difficult to relax when your backyard paradise looks more like something out of Swamp Thing.

Drain the Pool Completely 

You can ethically drain the pool by consulting your local environmental codes.

You will need to wait for the pool to dry before you can remove any debris. Cover the pool area with debris. You can secure the components with plastic wrap, bags, and rubber bands.

Use Detergent to Wash Walls

First wash the walls with detergent, then clean the floors. You can avoid any confusion by working in sections.

Use the right pressure washer detergent starting at the bottom and allowing it to work for between 5-10 minutes. Keep adding water to any areas that dry out. Next, use a gentle, low-pressure spray to flush any residue and detergent from the walls.

Calcium deposits can form over time if you have a plaster swimming pool. These buildups can be cleaned with normal pool detergent, although it is possible to soak and clean more often for more stubborn stains.

Algae Can Be Treated and Removed

Pool Algae You can use algaecide or a mixture of bleach and water to clean the pool.

Use 1 part bleach to 4 parts water and scrub the surface by hand with a brush. Do not run bleach through your pressure washer. This will cause damage. Allow the solution to settle for 10 minutes before thoroughly rinsing with water.
