Pool tile cleaning can be tedious, but Premier Pool Service can help! We specialize in removing those stubborn calcium deposits most pool owners struggle with, even with great tile maintenance. Our specialized equipment can safely remove those stains quickly and effectively, and your pool tile can look bright and clean!
Your Pool Tile Gets Calcium From 2 Sources
Calcium on tile bleeds through the grout from the underlying surface, if that surface was not properly sealed before the tile was installed. Calcium may appear to be dripping out of the grout lines. These areas can be treated, but unfortunately, the reoccurrence can’t be stopped, and deep pool tile cleaning may be warranted.
Obtaining clean pool tile will require periodic treatment. Calcium can also accumulate at the waterline if the PH (acid level) of the pool water is allowed to be too high for too long. In this scenario, a white line will be present at the waterline. This can also be easily addressed with professional pool tile cleaning.
Pool Tile Cleaning Service & Pool Tile Repair Service
Our goal is to make your pool tile look new again. With Premier’s pool tile cleaning service, we will shut off your filter system (and auto-fill valve). Then, in order for us to clearly see the calcium that needs to be removed, we drop the water level of your pool approximately 6″ below the bottom of the tile
To protect your tile, the bead that we use is very fine, almost like a powder. However, the bead is heavy enough to fall down to the bottom of the pool.
After we clean your tile, we vacuum the bead into a canvas bag for recycling. This vacuuming process removes 99% of the bead from the bottom of the pool.
Sometimes, your pool water will look cloudy after cleaning, especially if we are cleaning rock. This will clear up in a couple of days after your system has been running. We recommend rinsing out your cartridge filter (the big filter) after a week or so.
Finally, we apply a polish to your newly cleaned pool tile. This polish will give the tile that “wet look” and your tile will shine like new. Keep in mind, we cannot prevent calcium from coming back. The time it takes for the calcium to return will depend on how hard your water is, typically, 3-5 years. After we are finished, you will refill your pool. When your pools’ water level is back to normal, you will turn the system back on and reset the timers for the pool sweep, if needed.
Premier Pool Tile Cleaning Service will keep your pool and pool area free of clutter or debris. We are committed to leaving your swimming pool and surroundings clean and tidy. We also clean pool coping (bull-nose brick and cement) and rock waterfalls.
We Repair Damaged Pool Tiles To Look Like New!
Pool tile differs from bathroom tile in that it is formulated to be frost free, or manufactured to prevent water absorption. It’s made to be very durable, but over time, it can still chip and require repair. Broken pool tiles are extremely common and are relatively quick to fix. Typically, fixing your pool tiles is fairly simple, and rarely requires replacing all of the tiles.
If your exact tile is not available, don’t worry. We can replace it by getting in touch with a local supplier, and can sometimes find a perfect match. Occasionally, the pool tile supplier has discontinued the tile. In this case we will match the tile as closely as possible.
Once we replace the damaged tiles, it takes two days or so for the grout to set up and dry. Premier Pool Service is an expert pool tile repair and restoration company, so our work will usually be finished within a day, and your pool tile will look sparkling clean and new again.
