How To Clean A Dirty Swimming Pool


One of the biggest mistake that owners of swimming pools do to clean  dirty pools from winter leaves, mold, mildew is to use muriatic acid. The pool doesn’t require an etch to remove the dirt, it really requires a cleaner which can dislodge and loosen the attached dirt from masonry plaster  or from  pool paint without doing damage to the surface. AC-3 Cleaner works great at doing this without burning your smooth finish or burning the pool paint off the surface. AC-3 is a mild cleaner which is non toxic. Pool professionals use AC-3 to clean  existing pools because it cleans and brightens the pool surface. Customers who have used AC-3 are amazed how well it works. They tell us that the plaster looks new and on painted surfaces, the paint looks new. AC-3 works in 3 ways, it contains a mild safe acid, a powerfull detergent, and a safe water soluble solvent. AC-3’s triple action cleaning cannot be found in muriatic acid. For more information on AC-3 call 1-800-922-4623.

Efflorescence Removal From Masonry Surfaces


One of the most stubborn stain to remove off masonry surfaces is efflorescence or commonly called salt deposits. Efflorescence is generally formed when masonry absorbs water and then when it wicks out, it leaves behind the soluble salts which are present in alkaline masonry surfaces. Sometimes this salt washes off easily with the next rain storm and other times it doesn’t wash off and starts to change from a soluble salt to an insoluble salt. Once efflorescence starts to become insoluble it becomes more and more difficult to remove.  Many will run down to the hardware store and purchase Muriatic acid which can work sometimes but Muriatic Acid has many drawbacks. Muriatic Acid is highly dangerous to work with, and it burns the finish from the masonry surface, corrodes metal framed windows, etches glass. Muriatic acid works great for etching concrete but it can destroy the finish from common bricks, colored concrete block, limestone, bluestone and many other types of masonry surfaces. Once the color is bleached out it will never match the surrounding surfaces. The Chargar Corportation manufactures a cleaner called AC-3. AC-3 does not contain any Muriatic Acid or Hydrochloric Acid which the chemical  name for Muriatic Acid. AC-3 is a safe and gentle cleaner which when used properly can remove efflorescence from masonry without destroying the natural appearance of the surface. AC-3 does not emit toxic vapors, or corrode metal surfaces or etch glass. Ac-3 is biodegradable and will remove efflorescence without the hazards associated with Muriatic Acid.

AC 3 Cleaner all purpose acid cleaners

AC-3 is one of the safest and most effective all purpose acid cleaners on the market.
Compounded with a comparatively safe acid, strong detergent and solvents to provide a fast 3 way cleaning action.
Accidental splashing will not cause skin burns or discomfort, nor will it harmfully effect most masonry surfaces.

AC-3 Acid Cleaner has a pleasant clean odor and dispels no harmful or corrosive fumes.

AC-3 three way cleaning action will penetrate deeply into the surface and will dissolve, dislodge
and foam to the surface from easy removal of dirt, oil, grease and scum.

AC-3 Cleaner removes cement drippings and waste from new surfaces. It will also clean and renew old weathered and stained concrete and masonry buildings
and prepare the surface to receive weather proof treatment or paint.

AC-3 will remove efflorescence, dirt and rust stains from concrete, ceramic tile, terrazzo, marble, slate, stone and porcelain bath fixtures.

AC-3 may also be used on metal surfaces to remove grease, dirt and oil. Cuts size coating and film. Brightens and cleans off oxidation. Etches and cleans concrete floors for painting.


Since AC-3 contains acid and other strong cleaning agents, it should be used with care. Protect eyes, skin and surrounding areas. User should make a test sample, allowing it to dry thoroughly to determine it’s suitability for job conditions and requirements.

Usage Directions

From most surfaces and job conditions AC-3 should be diluted with 1 to 10 parts of water. Always use the mildest solution that can do the job. Tough stains and hardened mortar may require full strength.

First dampen surface with water. Apply AC-3 at proper strength to surface and agitate or scrub with nylon or other acid resistant brush for 2 or 3 minutes
or until bubbling action stops. Rinse with clean water, agitate while rinsing. Do not do too large and area at one time, so that the loosened dirt may allowed to settle back or dry. Repeat cleaning operation on stubborn stains as required.

Allow all surfaces to dry before waxing, painting or sealing. Terrazzo must be waxed or sealed as soon as dry.

When clenaing walls start at the bottom and work upward. One gallon cleans approximately 300 sq. ft., depending on porosity and job conditions.
