    Cleaning pool tiles

    My neighbor is a little old man and has a history of being "ripped off" where his pool is concerned. He was given an $800 estimate to clean his pool tiles, so he wants to do it himself. What is the TFP way to clean pool tiles? He has a small, fiberglass over gunite pool. In the last year he has been talked into: a new filter, pool pump, aux. pump, 2 pool cleaners (the first one did not work), all copper pipe replacement, drain pool to get rid of "heavy metals" (after purchasing $200 of chemicals that made the problem worse). I won't say the name of the pool store that is taking advantage of him. He is not assertive and easily intimidated. I would like to help him as he doesn't have a computer. Couldn't find anything in the Pool School. Help!

    The info in my signature is about my pool, not his.
    30,000gal. IG pool - applied fiberglass over gunite when pool was remodeled, cartridge filter, 1HP pump, 100 gal/min flow rate

    Re: Cleaning pool tiles

    The last reply in this topic mentions pool tile soap, from the pool store.

    I haven't ever used it. So far (coming up on 1 year) my tile hasn't been dirty enough to need soap, just a sponge and elbow grease.
