How Do I Remove Calcium Deposits from My Pool?

Calcium Deposit Solutions from Coachella Valley Pool Tile Professions

Calcium deposits come from an imbalance of a pool’s pH levels when there is an abundance of minerals including calcium. The calcium builds up, eventually creating the white waterline deposits you see on your pool tiles.

Removing calcium deposits from your pool’s tiles or fiberglass will protect them from future damage and keep your pool looking fresh. The Coachella Valley pool cleaning professionals at Supreme Pool Tile Works can help keep your pool looking clean all year long.

3 Simple Ways to Remove Calcium Deposits

There are three common, low-cost ways to remove calcium carbonate and calcium silicate from the walls of your pool. With a bit of elbow grease (maybe more than a bit) and some household and store-bought items, you can clean the tile or fiberglass where the calcium has settled.

The buildup of calcium along the waterline of the pool can be removed in the following ways:

  1. Use a pumice stone to scrub the surface of the pool tiles. This requires a strong, persistent scrubbing technique and it can be a taxing process. Pumice stones cannot be used on fiberglass pool surfaces.
  2. Use an acid-free calcium releaser or scale remover (depending on the surface of the pool). You can let the remover sit on the surface for a few minutes, per the instructions on the bottle before removing it.
  3. Blend a mixture of 1:1 white vinegar and water. Spray the solution onto the surface, letting it sit on the calcium deposits for a few minutes before using a scrub brush to gently scrub away the calcium.

Hiring a Professional to Remove Calcium from Pool Tiles

Calcium deposits can be removed thoroughly and efficiently with the help of a professional. Professional pool cleaners have the knowledge, tools, and protective equipment to clean your pool surfaces without extensive, painstaking scrubbing.

Professional pool tile cleaners can use muriatic acid to clean the surfaces of your pool, removing calcium deposits and revealing a fresh, clean surface. This method is not typically recommended for homeowners unless you have adequate personal protection equipment. Muriatic acid is highly toxic and can result in respiratory distress and a trip to the hospital.

A pressure washer can also be used to clean the surfaces of your pool, which will be the fastest, most effective way to remove the calcium deposits. Professional pool cleaners can add a magnesium sulfate solution to their pressure washer system to remove the calcium even quicker.

Pool cleaning professionals will clean the pool’s surface quickly and will require less work on the homeowner’s part but will ultimately cost more. Your budget will determine the avenue of cleaning that you choose, but it is always helpful to discuss your pool’s condition with someone who can point you in the right direction.
