HOW TO PRESSURE WASHER A POOL DECK


If you have a home with an inground pool you know all about work, countless hours of vacuuming, adding chemicals, and skimming can wear you out enough to where you don’t even want to use your pool. Now your pool deck is covered in mold, algae, and something you can’t identify from that party you had last week. Well don’t worry, with a quality pressure washer you’ll spend no time cleaning it up, and can get back to enjoying your pool.

This mold and algae not only can look bad, but poses a danger of a slippery surface. Bleach will remove mold the best, however never put any type of bleach or acid through your pressure washer. It is best to apply these types of chemicals with an external pump up garden sprayer.

You will want to remove all items from your pool deck, toys, furniture, etc, so that not to damage anything. Connect your pressure washer to the appropriate water supply. You’ll also want to remove any objects such as leaves, coins, or anything that might slow you down and leave marks. You can accomplish this very easily by just holding your wand straight out and blowing away the debris.

Next apply the right Chemical, like our 532 Concrete Cleaner to your pool deck, depending on what you are trying to get off and what type of material it is made of, being sure to follow all directions. You will want to use either a 15° or 25° spray tip holding your wand at a 90° angle to the deck. Depending on the material to be cleaned a pressure between 2000-3500 psi is required to accomplish this job in an acceptable time.

Pressure Washing Tips Overview

    stream of water is to narrow and concentrated. This tip would be ideal for concrete, and metal.
