    beautec scaletec whatever gets rid of calcium line on quartzite tile line?

    Can't find any info on beautec/scaletec and don't wanna be sales pitched by manufacture...i just did a replaster and used start up tech but was considering using beautec for removing calcium line on quartzite tile line (plasterer tried mur acid/water combo from water can and it did nothing)will it be a waste of money to use beautec to rid calcium line and keep off of natural quartzite for maintenance too

    Welcome to TFP!

    If muriatic acid did not remove it, it might not be calcium, in which case beautec/scaletec is unlikely to work. Muriatic acid always works on calcium if you use enough, it is just inconvenient.

    Typically a line at the waterline on tile is easiest to remove with tile soap and a scrubby sponge.

    thank you for replying so fast,the line on my quartzite tile is almost 5 years old and looks like calcium or it is from the salt system maybe... trying to figure this out since a plaster guy couldn't get it off with acid/water/sponge...he said he could blast it but it might not come all the way off cause of the natural stone "any more ideas"
    was thinking about using scaltec/beautec to loosen it up im not sure
