Care and Maintenance

  • Cover frequently traveled areas of the pool deck with no-slip mats to prevent wear and tear.

  • Keep metal furniture off of the pool deck. Rust stains from metal chairs can stain your pool deck.

  • Clean your pool deck frequently with a leaf blower or hose.

  • Clean up spills as soon as they drop to prevent staining.

  • Keep your deck area clear of overhanging trees. Leaves and fruit that drop on the deck can stain it.

  • Likewise, avoid spilling fertilizer on your pool deck. Fertilizer contains iron, which can leave a hard-to-remove orange stain.

  • Calcium deposits usually originate from grout or setting mortar. To remove it, use a calcium releaser -  a safe, non-toxic, acid-free cleaner that effectively removes calcium deposits and efflorescence from pool tile. Calcium deposits are removed in layers through the use of advanced acid-mimic technology, which specifically targets mineral build-up without damage to the tile surface or metal finishes. When applied prior to mediablasting, Calcium Releaser softens and loosens deposits, which allows for the use of less aggressive media, reduced blasting time and reduced media consumption. Safe for glass, iridescent glass, ceramic and porcelain tile. Another method for removing calcium deposits is the pumice stone. Pumice is a light porous glassy lava stone that can be rubbed over a pool stain to remove it. You can get a pumice stone that can attach to your telescopic pole or a pumice stone that has a handle you can swim with.
