Dave's Pool Tile Cleaning

Most people don't know how to effectively clean the white buildup from their tile or are ready to re-tile to get rid of that ugly stuff, until they hear of my more efficient and less costly operation.

This is an example of my work. 
I will remove scale and calcium deposits to make your tile look new!

I use today's technology for cleaning calcium and scum from the tile...

MY MEDIA BLASTING MACHINE has an automatic retrieval system built in to keep the beads contained by use of a vacuum system. As the beads are blasted out, the vacuum system is simultaneously sucking the beads and debris back into the machine. Virtual loss of 1 pound of beads maximum (5%) on most pools (those are vacuumed later). Your pool and surrounding areas are virtually free from debris, unlike other types of cleaning machines that don't keep the beads contained. Those type machines blow the beads all over, (up to 300 pounds of beads for the same size pool), to land in the pool, shrubs and patio areas which makes it difficult to thoroughly clean up.

GLASS BEADS are:                                                         
Will not harm water chemistry

Respond quickly for estimates.
Set up a convenient service date.
Drain pool to proper cleaning level.
Clean tile.
Vacuum, if by chance, any beads do fall into the pool (which should be minimal).


Did you ever wonder which tile sealer is the best ? Well, wonder no more !! Since I started cleaning pool tile in 1989, I have found NO tile sealer that will keep the calcium from building up on the tile. I have tried numerous brands and NONE WORK !!

Some companies will advertise that they will put a coat of sealer on the tile after they have cleaned it claiming it will keep the calcium from coming back, but it doesn’t matter if they do or not, because a sealer has to sink into a surface to protect it and pool tile is too hard for anything to penetrate it, therefore, little or no protection. Also, the acid and chlorine in the water would take it right back off again. As long as the surface is dry, which would be the case of a sealed tile, calcium is going to stick to it. Some sealers, after drying on the tile, will even leave a white film after a few months, which looks like calcium, but in actuality is the sealer itself. The only way to keep a re-occuring calcium buildup from coming back as fast is to keep the chemical levels at the proper range (ie: alkalinity and calcium content in the water). Alkalinity can be brought down to correct levels by adding Muriatic acid a little at a time (too much at one time could also drop the pH level). If the Calcium Content is excessively high, ½ to ¾ of the pool water should be drained and fresh water added. That works better than any sealer ever would.


Even though I don't believe in sealers as mentioned above, I will put a sealer on at no charge if the owner requests it.
