Pool Maintenance Tips to Get Rid of Calcium Deposits

This must be one of the many questions on the mind of a pool owner. And here I will be giving 5 ways on how to remove calcium deposits from your pool! And not only will it look better, but it will also allow you to enjoy your pool like you once did!

1. Use a calcium releaser

These products make it easy to remove calcium deposits. While selecting your product, select acid-free calcium releasers, as these products are left a long time on your pool tile before scrubbing off, and the acid could destroy your pool finish.

2. Use scaling treatment

If your pool is made of fiberglass, scaling treatment is advised because other methods would scratch the glass since they involve brushing.

3. Use a pumice

This rock is also effective in removing calcium deposits in pools, make sure the surface of both the rock and the pool is wet, and do not scrub too hard in order not to deface your pool.

4. Use white vinegar and a scrub brush

Fill a water bottle spray with half water and half vinegar solution, spray on your pool tile and leave for some minutes before rubbing gently with a scrub brush.

5. Use muriatic acid

This is also known as Hydrochloric acid, this acid has high strength in removing mineral deposits, calcium deposits inclusive. While using it, you should be fully clothed with your google and gloves in order to avoid safety hazards. Make sure not to leave the acid too long because you do not want to destroy the finish of your pool.

6. Clean the edge of the pool regularly

Cleaning the edge of the pool is a tedious task that is often postponed. However, we recommend that you regularly clean the edge of your pool.

You will thus eliminate the lime at the height of the waterline. If you put off this task over and over, you will have a hard time removing the scale deposit.

Therefore, take the time to meticulously clean the edge of your pool on a regular basis. You will thus obtain an impeccable water line, without the slightest trace of lime on the interior coating.

7. Add fresh water regularly

Our last tip should only apply a few times a year. Adding new water to the pool reduces certain concentrations of salts and metals, such as chlorides, iron, copper, etc.

These concentrations must be reduced in order to guarantee good disinfection of the swimming pool water. In addition, high concentrations of metals can cause brown spots to appear in the pool.

To avoid this inconvenience, add 3 to 5% of the total water volume in your pool at least 3 times a year. Warning: do not use well water in particular. This indeed contains a too high concentration of these metals. You could therefore make the situation worse.
