Pool Tile Cleaning Service, Fresno, CA
If your pool has tiles, as many frequently do, then you may have experienced calcium buildup. Calcium build-up, which is also known as “scale”, is caused by incorrect PH levels in your pool. Of course, this can be mitigated where proper maintenance is conducted (as is done when you employ Optima Pool Cleaning), but if you are already a victim of calcium build-up, we are still able to assist! Our teams are experts in removing the white marks that can truly detract from the aesthetic appeal of the tiles in your pool.
What happens if the scale is not treated
Calcium scale causes a white stain across the top of pools and pool tiles. Not only does this build-up give your pool an unsightly and unkempt appearance, but it can also affect the clarity of your water and cause issues with your pool water pumping system, as the build-up causes blockages in the system. It is best to ensure that the calcium scale is quickly and effectively remedied, to avoid any future issues with your pool. Addressing calcium scale early on will also keep your pool looking newer and cleaner for longer!
How we remove calcium scale
There are many “tricks of the trade” that we can employ to remove calcium scale. Most commonly, we utilize a high-pressure spray machine that sprays glass beads onto the surface of the area affected by the build-up. Once this is done, the remaining build-up is brushed or wiped away and the pool is treated to prevent future calcium build-up. Give us a call to find out more about the process that we employ to conduct tiles cleaning and to receive a quote on this essential pool maintenance trick.
Other issues that can affect your pool tiles
Your pool tiles are not only susceptible to calcium scale but can also become a breeding ground for algae. While we dedicate an entire service offering to algae removal, we also ensure that any algae exposure on your tiles are cleaned and removed so that harmful bacteria cannot breed within your pool tiles and grout and introduce contaminants into your pool water. The overall health of your pool should not be the only consideration that you make regarding its maintenance, but also the health of those who utilize it!
How to care for your pool once scale has been removed
Once we have removed the calcium scale build-up on your pool and pool tiles, you’ll want to keep the pesky white stains from returning – so what should you do to ensure this? Well, the first port of call will be to ensure that your water balance is ideal. This can be done by ensuring that there are perfect balances of calcium hardness, pH, and alkalinity parameters. You will also want to regularly scrub the pool with a brush to break up any build-up that has formed. Alternatively, give us a call and allow us to handle the maintenance of your pool for you!
