Got heavy calcium build up on your pool tiles? Don't use dangerous chemicals to clean them with, instead, use a sheet of drywall sandpaper.
It has enough "bite" to remove the calcium deposits, but not enough to scratch delicate tile surfaces. Fast and easy with no worries of skin burns chemicals can give.

Wet the sandpaper first, then just wipe. I can do my whole pool in an hour or so and I have a very large pool! It leaves the tiles looking brand new.

What type of acid is required to remove calcium deposits from pool tile? Muratic?

Yes Jeff, it is Muriatic Acid but straight White Vinegar heated until hot works just as well with no danger. I cleaned my entire pools tiles last summer which hadn't been cleaned in years. They all sparkle now.

I have read tips about using sandpaper to clean calcium deposits on swimming pool tiles. I've used pumice stone and didn't like the mess it made. The sandpaper idea sounds great. What brand and what grit do you use?
