I cannot find the search function to search for this topic. I was going to use a pumice stone to clean the tile around the pool but I don't want to scratch the tile. What is your favorite way to get rid of the calcium build up. Ours has never been cleaned and there is a LOT. I know it will take awhile with a lot of elbow grease, but looking for cleaner options. Thanks!

Welcome to TFP.

You can try a diluted mixture of muriatic acid in a spray bottle. Try a 5:1 mixture first. Understand that the acid will also remove and soften your grout. So excessive cleaning that way can lead to grout loss.

Otherwise you can do stronger methods described in Waterline Scale Removal - Further Reading
