If the PH levels in your pool are not where they should be, then calcium deposits can build up on the sides of your pool. These deposits look like a white film around the edges of your pool. They are both unsightly and damaging, and should be taken care of as soon as possible. Thankfully, you can hire a professional and have them take care of this issue for you. Here are three ways a professional can help you fix your calcium deposits.
Have A Professional Check Your PH Levels
If you think that you have calcium deposits building up inside your pool, the first thing that you should do is call a professional to come and check your PH levels. It is best to leave this to a professional because they will be able to check them quickly and effectively. They can determine if you have calcium carbonate or calcium silicate building up inside your pool. This then lets them know how to best treat the problem.
Lower Calcium And Adjust PH
Once the issue has been discovered, the professional can then adjust the chemicals in your pool to lower the calcium and adjust the PH levels. This often requires draining some of your pool water to remove a lot of the calcium in it. Once this is done, your pool water is once again balanced and will no longer create build up on the sides of your pool walls.
Remove The Build-Up
The final step in the process is to remove all the build-up of calcium deposits from your pool walls. This task is often completed by using a calcium cleaner and some type of pumice stone. This removes the calcium without causing damage to your pool. Again, this is best left up to the professionals because they can quickly and effectively remove the build-up without causing any damage to your pool.
