    Help!!Calcium scale on bottom of vinyl liner?

    I am trying to help the neighbors open their pool. It was a swamp. It is clearing up now. I have noticed that the bottom of the pool is rough like sandpaper. I believe it is calcium scaling. The liner was put in last year but the pool was not cared for properly. How can it be removed? Thanks in advance

    I keep working on it for now. Scrubbing the heck out of it. It was helping a little. Then I was vacuuming the pool and the suction was very good and pulled the vacuum head down until it stuck on the bottom. I pulled on it until it broke free and low and behold there was a clear path of no scaling. Does anyone think that it will hurt the pool to try to get it to get stuck and clean it that way? Thanks

    Not sure. If you keep the PH at 7.2 for awhile if the scale is rather fresh maybe that will help release it.
