During this time many people find themselves staying home more then ever, making their home a sanctuary. So what better way to continue to enjoy and protect your investment then a handful of tips on keeping your Mosaic Pool tile looking the exact same way it did the first week you were able to enjoy it.
A pH of 7.4 is considered “ideal” when swimming pool water. Ideally total alkalinity is around 80 to 120 PPM* (*Parts per million)
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
