Calcium deposits on the surface of swimming pool tiles can result in an entire pool pockmarked with unsightly white stains. Calcium stains should be cleaned promptly, because over time, the calcium can penetrate the tile, making the stains much more difficult to remove. Use common, safe household ingredients to easily and effectively clean calcium stains and restore the appearance of your swimming pool.
