1 Answer


I am not sure I would pressure wash a spa - I would be afraid of cutting into the gel coat in working the pressure washer around at the different angles needed to hit all the surfaces. Not to mention blasting water into the electrical/mechanical equipment. I would get out the sponge and recommended cleaner, and if needed recommended buffing/polishing media.

Pool - normally if it is so dirty that normal brush and vacuum cleaning will not do the job it is a drain and power brush or even sandblast and reseal job. I have heard of companies using pressure washer and vacuum with filter and dive gear to underwater clean pools (especially large public pools which are very expensive and time-consuming to empty and refill to do "in the dry") - but that is so much a specialty thing that you would have to find local companies doing it for a price - I would guess at least $0.50/SF of surface and quite likely more. Certainly more if the pool has to be emptied to do it in the dry assuming your pool can safely be emptied without popping up out of the ground - and of course the chemicals replacement cost is substantial, as is the water in most areas (where metered).

If you meant cleaning a pool DECK, then probably about $0.25-0.40/SF would cover the typical price range for normal concrete - if stone with a lot of dirty joints, probably more like $0.40-1.00/SF range - and be sure to work out a plan so the washings do not go into the pool or pool drains.
