Things to know

Empty Pool

An acid wash requires your swimming pool to be emptied. Re-filling it after the acid wash can take an additional 24+ hours depending on your pool size and will require multiple visits, to start up the pool and balance the chemicals. There is also the option of having your pool filled faster with a water truck for an additional charge.

Toxic Chemicals

Acid is a corrosive – releasing a gas that is toxic to your health. You will not be permitted near the pool or spa area during this process. D&R takes all precautions for safety during an acid wash procedure to ensure safety.

Water Discharging

All water must be discharged at a specified location on your property only. During the acid wash process, the water that is pumped out will be neutralized before discharging the water to your property.

Water & Electric

We will need outside water spigot access with the water turned on. Outside electric outlets are also needed to run any equipment.

Locked Access

For property ease of access – if you will not be home, please provide us with any access keys, codes, or instructions for your specified entrance areas. We will always leave your property in the condition we found it, and secure any entryways.


Never attempt an acid wash yourself. It must be done by an experienced professional.

Hello all,

Never in our lives would we be thinking about writing this message.This is devastating; we hope you haven’t been directly affected. We’re all hysterical that we cannot interact with each other. Kids & grandchildren – it is such a terrible feeling; but we can only play our parts. As much as we hear it every day; it’s time for D&R to address any concerns regarding COVID – 19 Coronavirus concerns and how we are changing operations until further notice. We believe in the safety of all of our clients, staff, and family. We request you make any exceptions to how our service works for the safety of all parties. We will continue to do our best as always promised.

Below is information taken directly off of the CDC’s website:

Q: “Can the COVID-19 virus spread through pools and hot tubs?”
A: There is no evidence that COVID-19 can be spread to humans through the use of pools and hot tubs. Proper operation, maintenance, and disinfection (e.g., with chlorine and bromine) of pools and hot tubs should remove or inactivate the virus that causes COVID-19. Chlorine easily kills this virus.

We all still need to be vigilant and follow the CDC guidelines pertaining to basic hygiene to prevent the spread of the virus. However, the use of your pool or spa will not increase your chances of contracting it.

Most of our clients have second homes here in the Hamptons. If you choose to seek refuge, to keep your family and loved ones in a safer space; we are offering to open your pools and spas earlier than anticipated, to give you a sense of normalcy and entertainment, while we wait this unfortunate situation out.

Our technicians are all practicing safe and effective hygiene, and always have sanitizers and cleaners for our equipment on hand, as well. We ask that you stay inside from our employees during visits; as we are insisting on safe distancing. Any questions can be called in immediately to our office and will be relayed to our employees immediately. This keeps us all safe for the time being and we appreciate your understanding of the current situation.

Laura is available as always at (516) 449-9107 for any digital communication via text, email, or voice; to address any concerns you have, or to offer any assistance. Thank you for your continued support during these concerning times.

Thank You,

D&R Pool Services, Inc.
