Hi I'm Peter with Leslie's Swimming Pool Supplies and this video will teach you how to get rid of scale in your pool. Scaling occurs when calcium deposits are left on the pool surfaces after water has evaporated. This leaves a line of scale around the edge of your pool that can be difficult to remove. Here's some way you can fight scale in your pool.

A Pumice Stone can be used on ceramic tile or concrete surfaces. When using a pumice stone make sure to keep the stone and the surface you're cleaning wet all times to prevent scratching.

A stain eraser not only works on stains but alike calcium deposits as well. And Leslie’s Stain & Scale to is safe for all surfaces. This chemical was added to the water slowly to wear away the stains. They can also help prevent calcium from coming out of suspension in your water.

If you have any other questions about scale, call or visit your local Leslies Store. For more videos & pool care tips visit our website.
