Even though it seems like snow and ice are never going to go away, now is the time to start thinking about swimming pool maintenance. All pools develop scale deposits especially in hard water areas. Most commonly, the row of ceramic tile at the water level needs to be cleaned.
There are a number ways to remove the scale build-up. Stiff wire brushes require lots of labor and can scratch the tile. Acid chemicals will create an imbalance in the pool chemistry and are a potential health hazard. Abrasive blasting with Glass Bead is an effective, quick and efficient method to remove the scale without damaging the tile or creating a hazardous situation.
Details on this article will provide a good start for both homeowners and contractors to start bead blasting pool tile.
