Cleaning Calcium from Pool Tiles
Even though our pool techs will brush the waterline tiles at each weekly pool service visit, the evaporation of the pool water will still cause deposits to form. In about 2 years the pool will develop a scale line on the tile.
You can choose to leave this alone as it will not harm the pool or swimmers, but is usually not desired because it takes away from the visual appeal of the pool.
We use environmentally friendly blasting material that will not harm your landscaping or the pool filtration system
Should I replace or clean the pool tiles?
Pool tile restoration is typically less cost than replacing them. If the pool tile is old (more than 10 years) it can be hard to find the same replacement tiles to make spot repairs. So if you are missing pool tiles, or if most of the tile is cracked you may just consider replacing them all.

Are there other ways to clean my pool tile?
- Glass Bead Blasting
Round glass beads (about 10 microns) are used to clean the calcium, oil and grit off pool tiles and grout lines. Glass bead blasting is used primarily on Pebble Tec pools. The glass beads are easily cleaned up after the tile cleaning is complete, both on the deck and in the pool. It glass bead blasting will not alter the balance of the pool water chemistry.
- Salt Blasting
Makes use of mined mineral salt that is shot at low pressure. When the salt hits the tile it frees the calcium from the pool tile’s surface. It is used on ceramic, sand stone and other tiles, (as well as on Pebble Tec, just not as effective). It’s natural, biodegradable, and is pH neutral and is considered the new, better way to clean pool tile.
- Soda Blasting
Soda blasting is similar to glass bead blasting, but uses sodium bicarbonate (Baking Soda), a much softer media. Used on stone, ceramic and sometimes Pebble Tec. It soda blasting can cause high pH and total alkalinity levels could go up a bit in larger pools.
Things that will NOT work to clean pool tiles
