What Causes Calcium Build-Up in Pools?

Pool Tile Cleaning Gets Rid of Calcium Build-Up

The Coachella Valley Pool Tile Cleaning Experts Know

The two types of calcium build-up are calcium carbonate and calcium silicate. Calcium carbonate is the lesser of the two evils because it’s easier to remove. Calcium silicate, on the other hand, is a lot harder to remove. You can tell which one you have by the color. Calcium carbonate is white and flaky, and calcium silicate is closer to being white and grey.

Calcium build-up, whether it’s carbonate or silicate, typically forms along your pool’s waterline for one or two reasons. Knowing why can help you prevent calcium build-up from ruining your backyard oasis. If it’s already there, the Coachella Valley pool tile cleaning experts at Supreme Pool Tile Cleaning can help you get rid of it.

Chemical Imbalance

Your pool’s pH levels may be too high if you see calcium build-up along your pool’s waterline. Just like most of the country, the Coachella Valley has hard water. Hard water is high in minerals like magnesium, calcium and sometimes others. Therefore, it’s easy for calcium build-up to form if your pool has a chemical imbalance.

In addition to calcium build-up, a pool with a chemical imbalance can lead to:

  • Bacteria growth
  • Algae growth
  • Pool equipment damage
  • And more

These problems can get expensive. Avoid dealing with them by making sure you balance your pool’s chemicals.

Irregular Pool Cleanings

Not cleaning your pool on a regular basis can lead to calcium build-up too. Pool experts in the Coachella Valley can check on your pool, including its chemical levels, every time they clean it. That way, calcium build-up won’t ruin your backyard oasis.

In addition to preventing calcium build-up, regular pool cleanings can:

  • Enhance your pool’s appearance
  • Help keep your pool safe to swim in
  • Maintain your pool’s equipment
