    Stainless steel brush on tile

    I've been starting to use a stainless steel brush on my pool to get rid of some calcium build up. Is this type brush ok on the tile and grout or should I try to avoid contacting those areas with it?

    If it's a pool brush, it should be fine. Stiffer, thicker wire brushes can chew things up pretty good. Ask me how I know.

    If you have a white ring around the tile at the water line, a pumice stone and elbow grease will get rid of it. Follow it up with Motrin and/or alcohol.

    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.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
