If your swimming pool has been unused or unmaintained for quite some time, it’s not surprising to find algae and other microorganisms growing in your pool. The only way to get rid of yellow or green algae is to get a professional pool chlorine bath (also known as chlorine wash).
How is a pool chlorine wash done? Basically, it’s draining your pool and filling it again with liquid chlorine and water. The pool chlorine bath mixture is poured onto the sides and bottom of the pool and then rinsed off. The wastewater is then pumped out once the pool chlorine bath is finished. Sounds easy? Not really. If you want to give your pool an effective chlorine bath, it’s best to let the professionals do it.
If you own a commercial or residential pool in Las Vegas, the pool care experts at Bryte Pool specialize in pool chlorine baths for deep cleaning purposes. If you’ve recently purchased a property with a pool, it’s hard to be sure if the water is safe for swimming. That being said, having your pool treated with a chlorine bath before use is a good idea.
Our pool chlorine bath services include pool draining and full cleaning, depending on the severity of dirt and grime. Our chlorine baths are used to get rid of algae, germs, bacteria, and other substances that may cause infection or contaminate the water.
If you notice algae or molds in your pool, it most likely needs a chlorine wash. Algae is not only icky to look at, it can also pose danger to your pool by making it slippery. Pool sides, stairs, or floors that are infested with algae may become slippery and dangerous to walk on. Water itself is already slippery, so if algae is added into the equation, it won’t be long before you or someone else gets into an accident.
If left on the surface too long, algae can also leave a stain on your pool. The only way to remove those unsightly stains is through an abrasive acid wash.
Acid washing is usually considered as the last resort for pool cleaning because it is much harsher than a chlorine bath. Acid washing literally removes a layer of plaster from your pool and if performed too often, it can degrade the plaster in the long run.
This is why having regular pool chlorine baths is a good idea for pool maintenance. Chlorine baths are gentler and can be performed regularly without harming your pool and its surfaces. If you get regular chlorine baths for your pool, you’ll most likely eliminate the need to have an acid wash.
