    Lime remover?

    The Hard water in AZ is killing me! I have a lime line on the pool tile and on the stone under the water fall. Any advice on a product to use on it? For the tile I can get it off but the stone is another story. Thanks guys.

    Muriatic acid is the normal first choice for tile.

    What would be the procedure and would it be at full strength?

    I'm having this issue as well.

    For my tile...it's had SOS pads on it before so no clear is on it. Don't judge me but I use a grill scraper! The sharp edge of it. Only works on thick lime.

    1:4 diluted acid and a pumice stone.

    It'll make fingernails on a chalkboard sound, don't be alarmed.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
