What is Bead Blasting?

Bead blasting uses small glass beads that, to you and I, look like sand.  Because they are created round they don't damage the surface that they are applied to.  The glass beads are shot out of a high pressure hose at high speeds, removing the calcium but leaving the tile surface unscratched.


Where do the beads go?

The beads go into the bottom of the swimming pool when we are done cleaning the tile we use a pool vacuum and vacume the beads up and out of the pool.  Since we don't use your pool pump or filter in that process your pool is left super clean!


Why does my pool get that calcium buildup?

The water in Southern Nevada is naturally basic.  It's pH is usually around 8.1 or higher.  When water has pH that is high like it is here it tends to leave white scale.  I am sure you have seen it on your brick walls, sidewalks, and of course, in your swimming pool.  The secret to not getting calcium buildup is to make sure the pH in your water is at an acceptable level.  Our technicians can help you with that, or we can maintain your pool on a monthly basis!  Pools also get calcium buildup because there are too many dissolved particles in the water.  As a rule of thumb you should drain and refill your pool every 5 years.  That will help eliminate calcium buildup and cut the amount of water you spend on chemicals as well!

How much does bead blasting cost?

The average pool, with the average line on the tile, is around $400.  Generally the charge goes up about $4.00 per linear foot after that.  We will provide a total for you before we start.  Pools with excessive calcium buildup or raised walls will be slightly more expensive.
