acid washing pools take a lot of life out of the plaster and can make it rough. What I would do first is try a suspended acid wash. first bypass heater if there is one lower pH and let pool circulate a day or two then bring water back to correct balance. This usually removes stains and does the entire pool evenly without streaks and roughness
