Did you know?

A pH of 7.4 is considered “ideal” when swimming pool water. Ideally total alkalinity is around 80 to 120 PPM* (*Parts per million)

1. Clean of and Brush tiles along waterline.

With all Mosaic Pool tile the most usual area of concern is where water and air expose the tiles and this is usually the water line around the pool. Usually Hard water and Heat are the causes of Calcium Deposits on the waterline of a pool. 

2. Don’t forget the Grout

The grout between your swimming pool tiles can be prone to algae or calcium buildup. To remove, start by scrubbing the grout with a stiff brush. Keep an eye on areas exposed to the elements such and sun heat and air

3. Vacuum, Vacuum, Vacuum

You should aim to vacuum your pool at least once a week. Skimming will only remove the leaves and debris that is floating, and most debris that enters a pool floats for 3-4 hours, so vacuuming is critical to keep a pool sufficiently clean.

4. Water pH

Pool water should be tested regularly to make sure it’s clean and healthy. The pH scale is a measurement of acidity or alkalinity that runs from 0 to 14. A reading between 7.2 and 7.8 is ideal and means the water is safe to swim in.

5. Consistency is Key

To keep your pool tile buildup-free, you should establish a good pool maintenance regimen that includes testing your water’s pH and alkalinity levels (you can buy an easy-to-use test kit at your local pool supply store) and brushing your pool tile regularly.
