How do you get white scale off a fiberglass pool

Why is my fiberglass pool’s shell fading? This is a frequent concern that fiberglass pool owners may have to face at some point.

This fading can start as a white material forming on the shell of the swimming pool and can also make the water appear hazy. The white particulate can also build up in the filter which will require constant cleaning. This can happen to any fiberglass pool because of age, excessive chemical treatments (especially overchlorination) or most commonly, a combination of these concerns.

If you view a layer of white or greyish-white grime on the sides of your pool around the tile line, that’s calcium. Calcium can build up and leach into the shell’s gelcoat. As fiberglass swimming pools begin to get older the gelcoat finish will slowly fade in color over time. Calcium scale deposits occur when your water has too much calcium or from hard water. The white flakes are typically from calcium deposits that have built up over the years.

Maintaining a great looking fiberglass swimming pool means keeping the water in balance by saturating it with the right chemicals and systems to help control the factors that make calcification possible. One such platform is the Vibranz fiberglass pool care system.
