A fine media is mixed with air pressure and blown at the “scale” at a certain pressure. The “media” pings the scale particles vibrating them and forcing them to release their hold.
The mixture of media and scale then falls to the pool floor. From there it is vacuumed up separately using our portable pump. After the cleaning and vacuuming is completed I hose off the pool deck, I also refill your pool or bring the level back up to normal levels.
What Is Scale?
Scale is a coating or precipitate deposited on surfaces that are in contact with hard water. Water that contains carbonates of bicarbonates of calcium or magnesium are especially likely to cause scale. When water is heated or evaporation takes place, scale minerals precipitate layers of rock-like deposits on swimming pool tile, inside pipes, water heaters, equipment, and on fixtures and glassware. While most common scale is a result of calcium carbonate, other combinations of ions commonly found in water offer a variety of scale.
