How to Get Rid of Calcium Build Up
What is the white, scaly material that is built up around my tile and brick line, and how do I get rid of it?
First, the white stuff you see is probably calcium buildup, or what some people call scale. It forms around the waterline of your pool because of high pH or alkalinity, or a high calcium concentration. They can also be caused by hard water and minerals that seep out of the mortar around pool brickwork. When the temperature changes and the water evaporates you see the calcium build up alongside the pool wall. If you don’t get the scale off your tile or brick/stone quickly you can end up with permanent damage. You can remove the calcium deposits using physical labor, with the use of certain chemicals and preventive measures but either way this is something which needs to be repeated from time to time because the deposits will always return, requiring another cleaning. We offer a new service which removes the deposits, restoring your pool walls and saving you costly future tile and brick/stone repairs. We also offer a preventive service which helps keep the calcium deposits from forming in the first place. Give us a call on 602-413-4597 for a quick free quote on this service.
