How To Get Rid Of Calcium Scale In Swimming Pools

Scale is a rough sand paper like calcium deposition on the pool interior. It can brush off like chalk & cause cloudiness and bather discomfort. 

What you’ll need:

Control scale in your pool by following these simple steps (how-to):

  1. Have your water professionally tested at your local Clark Rubber store before commencing any chemical treatments.
  2. Clean filter to achieve maximum circulation, then turn off filter.
  3. Adjust pH to 7.5 or greater.
  4. Add 200 millilitres of Filtrite Stain & Scale Control per 10,000 litres of pool water. Refer to the bottle for additional instructions.
  5. Filtrite Stain & Scale Control is a strong acid mixture. When added to the pool water it will lower its pH and total alkalinity.
  6. Pool water must be re-balanced following use of Filtrite Stain & Scale Control. Add Crystal Clear Clarifier Pill to Skimmer Box to improve water clarity.

Always follow the manufacturers directions provided on the product.
