Calcium Cleaning and Removal
Frequently asked questions:
Q: Do I need to drain my pool?
A: No. I will take care of that as part of my service. This will help to minimize the amount of water you’ll need to add back in after the job is complete.
Q: Will your material clog my filters or skimmers?
A: No, the material I use is designed to pass through your filter system. Any material that stays behind will pass through your filter in 24-48 hours.
Q: How fast can I get back to swimming in my pool?
A: Immediately, however, I recommend allowing your filter to run for at least a few hours to remove any remaining small particles.
Q: How long does the process take?
A: The cleaning time can vary from job to job. Typically a cleaning will range from 3-6 hours. Naturally larger pools or tile with excessive buildup will take longer.
Q: Can you replace tile that has fallen off my pool?
A: Yes, I can replace and reattached tiles that have become dislodged. However, before reattached tile I’ll make a full inspection to insure there is no underlying issues.
Q: Are you able to clean natural stone.
A: Yes, we specialize in cleaning all types of tile, including: natural stone, ceramic, and brick/mortar. Visit my services page for more details.
Q: What type of material do you use?
A: Material used varies based on the type of tile you have in your pool. For ceramic tile I use a solid media that will be vacuumed out as part of the tile cleaning service. For glass tile I use a salt media that breaks down naturally in the pool with no ill effect to pool pH.
Q: Do you provide pool service?
A: No, but I do work with several companies that offer a monthly pool services and I am happy to refer you.
