Why use ScaleBusters?
SCALEBUSTERS has been restoring the clean “scale free” look to pool surfaces, fountains, boulders, and water features since 1999, and has a perfect record with the Better Business Bureau.
As a family owned small business, the work is performed by the owner, giving his own personal pride of craftmanship to the job.
Using a custom designed equipment system a mild media is sprayed onto the surface to remove the scale. This method is state of the art, cost effective, and environmentally safe.
The site is thoroughly cleaned afterwards, and a liquid sealer is applied to tile surfaces to give protection from the scale returning too quickly.

What Is Scale?
“Hard” water contains bicarbonates of calcium or magnesium and is especially likely to cause scale. Scale is a coating deposited on surfaces that are in contact with hard water. When water is heated or evaporation takes place, scale minerals form rock-like deposits on swimming pool tile and is unsightly, but can be removed. Scalebusters method will make your tile like new.
Fine Media Cleaning
A fine media of powdered micro glass beads is mixed with air pressure and blown at the “scale” at an adjustable 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 using our portable retrieval system. None of the debris is put back into the pool filtering system. Most tile can be cleaned this way.
Also offered for cleaning is a less aggressive media, called Kieserite. This is used on “soft tile”, “glass tile”, or “soft stone” such as frail flagstone.
