From algae to stains and calcium scale, let's discuss what's causing your pool mosaic tiles and waterline to look dirty and how to fix it.
Materials such as dirt, soil and leaves can cause staining if left for long periods of time. Therefore, it is recommended to remove the leaves from your pool manually or with a special pool vacuum.
If you have too much chlorine in your pool, it can cause discoloration in your glass pool mosaic tiles. The bleached appearance is caused by calcium deposits and scaling deposited on the surface of the tiles. Likewise, if the chlorine level is too low, you may experience slippery, unsightly algae problems.
Have you ever noticed hard water deposits in your house around shower areas, tubs, sinks and backsplashes. If you're no stranger to cloudy white residue, then your pool likely has similar scaling.
When cleaning glass pool mosaic tiles, avoid using abrasive cleaning tools or chemicals. Cheap pumice and the like can leave scratches on mosaics.
For basic cleaning, mix equal parts vinegar and water, then spray the area to be cleaned. Leave it there for a while, then wipe it off with a soft cloth to remove light stains and calcium carbonate casts. Rinse it off and let it dry. For stained grout, you can use the same mixture as warm water and clean with a soft bristle brush or toothbrush. A good quality pool cleaning brush and a non-abrasive pacifier cloth work best.
Diluted hydrochloric acid has proven to be very effective. However, you must take some precautions when handling his chemicals. The dilution process can be very exothermic, so be sure to dilute the acid slowly and carefully. Always do this by pouring the acid into water, not the other way around. Always use a regular wooden spoon and special plastic measuring cups, mixing containers and spray bottles.
