Mineral Blasting vs. Sand Blasting

Mineral Blasting in Coachella Valley

Why Choose Coachella Valley Mineral Blasting Over Sand Blasting?

Having a pool in the Coachella Valley means your pool has to stay clean during the hot summer months. Extreme heat can create calcium deposits along your pool’s waterline. Fortunately, Supreme Pool Tile Cleaning has an effective way to clean them: mineral blasting. Our Coachella Valley mineral blasting service gets the job done better than sand blasting because it doesn’t damage your pool or your health.

Mineral blasting, commonly referred to as bead blasting, is the safest way for us to clean pool tile because the mineral is stronger than calcium but softer than your pool tile surface; therefore it won’t pit, dull, or damage the surface of your tile. Our machinery allows us to add and use the selected mineral it takes to do the job on your specific type of tile. Being the professionals and having done over thousands of pools, our team can determine which mineral is best for the job. If we do only a partial drain, the minerals are also PH friendly and will not throw off the chemicals. In addition, the media blaster is used with regulated air pressure that we can lower or raise in order to get the calcium removed safely.

On the other hand, sandblasting is more abrasive media (media is the term used for our products- mineral/sand/crushed glass, glass bead) which is often used for paint removal of cars, rust removal, brick, pavers. In short, it is a much harsher media that will damage pool tile if not used correctly. In addition, its dust may be harmful to inhale. On top of damaging your pool’s surface and releasing unhealthy dust particles in the air, sand blasting can also make a mess in your backyard. This would require an extensive clean up job that’s no fun for anybody.

These are a few of the reasons why our Coachella Valley pool tile cleaning experts prefer mineral blasting over sand blasting.
