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.

3M sells a wet or dry assortment pack through Walmart. You might want to try this to see exactly what grit you will need then buy a pack of that grit. I would imagine you would want it to be very fine. I will post a link to what I found below.
Lime-Away is a product made for this purpose.
Calcium deposits can build up on your swimming pool just as they do in a toilet bowl. This is a page about how to remove calcium deposits around swimming pools.
