You may be wondering, “What causes calcium white scales and deposits to form on my pool tiles?”
Well, chances are you did not know that some active precautions have to be taken to prevent them from forming.
Calcium carbonate typically forms where the water line is in the pool. As the evaporation increases during the summer with warm heat, the scale itself tends to become a white color. But more than 9 times out of 10 it is mixed with dirt algae to make it look darker.
The most common cause for this is when the ppm of your water is over 400 and gets triggered by alkalinity. With a high pH in high temperatures, this is the result.
What to Do About these White Deposits on Your Pool Waterline
One common thing that almost every pool owner does is use calcium hydrochloric shock. Putting this into your pool does nothing but add calcium. Using a non-chlorine oxidizer will help you solve that one simple problem. You can also try to lower your pH and alkalinity to make it harder for calcium pieces to form.
Calcium Scale Removal
The typical way is that the heavy deposits of calcium scale are first scraped off. Then pour small amounts of any type of acid shock that you use such as acid magic or muriatic acid. You then one to quickly rinse it off and repeat it as needed. But this can be varied depending on how long it’s been. If you can’t remove it within the first few times, then that when I would recommend reaching out to our professionals and letting us handle the job!
