    HI poolmandave like to talk to you about a new product that will make your
    life so much easier to clean heavy hard water stains.

    Thanks for sharing but OMG! This would take FOREVER! If it took you a few
    months….it would take me a year…..think I’ll hire someone to power wash
    my tile.

    Does the pumice stone scratch the pool tiles? Also what are your thoughts
    on using hydrochloric acid on the tile? Ive seen some videos about this.
    Thanks

    You can try HASA Super Stain Out. It works pretty well on rust stains.

  7. Swimming Pool Tips, Reviews & How To -MrDgvb1 says:

    Depending on the stone type you could scratch the tile. The brand here is
    very good as it is a very light stone. I’ve tried different acid based
    products over the years – the results were okay. Hiring a Glass Bead
    company is another option if the calcium build up is severe. I’ve cleaner
    entire pools with Pumas stones. Very time consuming. It is easier when you
    can get in the pool and do it. Try the Pumas Stone on a small area to see
    if it is worth doing.

    here is the actually name to search under. Amazon has it. Pumice PB-80 Pool
    Blok Pool and Spa Cleaner – 6-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2

    Pumice stones will absolutely scratch your tile and yield very poor results.

    How do you clean calcium/scale off of flagstone. Will the pumice stone work?

  11. Swimming Pool Tips, Reviews & How To -MrDgvb1 says:

    I haven’t had a problem using the Pumas Stone, particularly this brand
    which is made of a very light material that is very brittle. As long as you
    keep the stone and area constantly wet you won’t scratch the tile. There
    are some brands of stones that are too compacted that I wouldn’t recommend
    using. If used correctly the results are good and the tile won’t be
    scratched.

  12. Swimming Pool Tips, Reviews & How To -MrDgvb1 says:

    Since your pool is drained you might want to consider hiring a local “Pool
    Tile Glass Beading” company. This will make the tile as good as new for
    around $300.00. The only other thing you could do is use several Pumas
    stones & dip them in water bucket as you work your way around the pool to
    keep the area wet. I have done this method and it is effective. The
    Gysar/acid mix might streak your plaster as it runs down the sides. Works
    best when pool is full of water. Hope that helps.

    Is there any good products to remove metal stains that i found under the
    buildup ? I have been using Metal Free.

  14. Swimming Pool Tips, Reviews & How To -MrDgvb1 says:

    Hire someone to glass bead it off. That is your best bet. Maybe $200-$300
    dollars. Flagstone is too hard for the pumas stone in my experience.

  15. Karen Ashbrook says:

    Hi, My pool is currently drained and I’d like to clean the calcium off the
    tile. In this vid you use the gysar F and acid mixture while the pool is
    filled. Would it work to remove the calcium by brushing the paste mixture
    on the dry tile, letting it sit for a while so the acid can do the work,
    then brushing / rinsing it off? Thanks

    where did you get the pumice stone from? is there an online site that i can
    use?
