Keeping Up With Tile Maintenance
Now that you have your beauty of a pool, it is time to make sure your tile maintenance game is at its peak. The last thing you want to do is allow your gorgeous new pool to look grungy or start experiencing challenges because of poor tile maintenance.
Tile Maintenance Dos
You’ve invested a pretty penny into your tile so make sure to take time to learn proper tile maintenance. Here are some tile maintenance tips for you.
#1 – Test your total alkalinity level to ensure it registers somewhere between 80 and 120 ppm. Adjust this level before you touch your pH.
#2 – Check your pool water to see what your pH level is. You want it to stay between 7.2 and 7.6. You can adjust it by adding a pH balancer to your pool water.
#3 – Calcium hardness should be kept between 200 and 235 ppm. If you have your levels too high you are going to have an increased risk for scale. Just add some soft water to bring it down. You may also want to use a scale inhibitor.
Keep on a proper tile maintenance/pool maintenance schedule. Make sure you are cleaning and testing your water’s balance regularly. Testing your levels daily will make sure they remain manageable.
#4 – You can remove light areas of waterline scale buildup by scrubbing with a pool brush or even a sponge and a tile cleaner. Make sure they were designed for either chlorine or chlorine-free pools.
