Unfortunately, this question usually comes after a customer has spent a lot of time and money trying all of the products out there that claim to be the answer for removing calcium and scale deposits. Among these products are liquid treatments, pumice stones and even eraser like contraptions. The truth is, none of these can really remove calcium and scale deposits and return your pool tile back to its original condition. So how do you really clean your pool tile? Call Watermark Pros of course.
Watermark Pros strongly recommends against the use of pumice stones or any other abrasive products or processes. We have seen first hand many tile surfaces severely damaged after a customer attempted to remove calcium deposits using a pumice stone. Using any abrasive method to remove calcium or scale buildup will result in a scratched or marred surface. Aside from the degraded aesthetics, scratched tile surfaces are calcium magnets. Watermark Pros' low impact process for removing calcium and scale buildup will not scratch or marr your expensive tile; in fact, while removing foreign matter from even the most delicate tile surfaces, our process actually polishes tile. We also apply protective sealers to all cleaned tile and stone surfaces to help keep your tile looking like new.
Our calcium and scale removal methods are designed to be extremely effective without the use of chemicals or abrasives. Our process does not alter pool water chemistry and is safe for people, plants and pets.
Sealing natural stone and masonry materials exposed to the elements, especially around a swimming pool. is critically important to protect the structural integrity and maintain appearance. . Prolonged exposures to sun, water, dissolved organics and chemicals stain, erode, crack and fade stone surfaces in and around your swimming pool soon after installation. We recommend sealing your stone when new; however if the damage has already occurred; Let Watermark Pros restore and protect the beauty and integrity of your exterior stone surfaces.
If your pool plaster is more than 10 years old, feels rough to the touch, is thinning or chipping and flaking; it’s time to take action. In extreme cases, plaster will lose its bond with the gunite causing hollows or bubbles in the plaster. Call Watermark Pros and we will evaluate the condition of your plaster and recommend a proper course of action.

Customer Testimonial

Chris and his team are the best. I needed to have my 19 year old swimming pool replastered, tiles cleaned as well as the Kool Deck cleaned and sealed.   Not only did they provide a very competitive bid, they started the job quickly and stayed with the job until it was complete. Also, I was experiencing  rust problems around some tile in the spa - they chiseled out the tile, clipped the metal back, and resurfaced beautifully. Chris' team are experts, very clean, upbeat and professional. They really seem to enjoy their job and it shows in the quality of their work.  I could not be happier. Chris has followed up multiple times to make sure everything is still doing well. I will only use Waternark Pros in the future!
