A swimming pool is made from tiles, which is water resistant. Tiles are chosen for a swimming pool because of its property, tiles don’t absorb water and can store the consistency of water for longer time. Water also looks transparent in a swimming pool made of tiles. Sometimes hard water stains can cause cloudy white residue in the pool. Though you can remove the hard water by using some cleaners, moreover, it would be a lot of work and may damage the pool. Here’s the whole guide for cleaning hard water stains from swimming pool.
Things you need before cleaning:
- Rubber gloves
- Eye goggles
- Plastic bucket
- Plastic measuring cup
- Muriatic acid
- Old plastic spoon or piece of wood
- Plastic spray bottle
- Non Abrasive scouring pad
Steps for cleaning:
Move the container of muriatic acid outside for proper ventilation. Wear rubber gloves, eye goggles and a respirator before opening the container.
Fill a plastic bucket with 1 gallon of water. Use a plastic measuring cup and slowly pour 8 ounces of muriatic acid into the water. Never pour water into muriatic acid, as adding water could cause undiluted muriatic acid to splash. Label your measuring cup as “muriatic acid only” and use it for your pool in the future, or dispose of it properly.
Stir the water and muriatic acid slowly with an old plastic spoon or a piece of wood that has no paint or printing on it. Do not mix the water and muriatic acid too quickly, as it can produce heat and begin to boil. Make sure you properly dispose of the spoon or the wood after mixing or label it for use with your pool in the future for muriatic acid only.
Fill a plastic spray bottle with the water and muriatic acid mixture. Make sure you label the spray bottle or dispose of it properly.
Spray the pool tiles with the muriatic acid mixture. Use a non-abrasive scouring pad to remove the hard water stains. Do not attempt to clean the tiles from inside the pool. Although you use muriatic acid in your pool water to help maintain the chemical balance of your pool, you are still working with a diluted acid. Always dispose of the acid to avoid any risks.
Test the water
Take a sample of your pool water to your pool supply company. Have the pool water tested to determine the level of hard water in your pool! They can recommend chemicals to use to avoid hard water stains in the future, as hardness levels vary from place to place.
