DO I NEED TILE CLEANING?
In Las Vegas, pool owners constantly have to deal with hard water. Hard water is water that has a greater amount of minerals such as calcium in it than pool water traditionally should. Throughout the year your water in your swimming pool continually evaporates.
Of course you do not notice this because you have a swimming pool "auto-fill" that turns on whenever the water level gets below a certain point to add enough water to raise your water level back up to where it needs to be.
The reason that pools eventually have higher levels of minerals in them then they are supposed to be because as the water evaporates the minerals that are in the water do not. This is like if you had a bucket full of salt water that you left outside to evaporate.
As the water evaporates it leaves the salt behind it, then, if you pour in more salt water (like using an auto fill) to refill the bucket you will have all the salt that was left over from the first expired bucket and all the salt from the second refill of water. This leaves you with twice as much salt as the water naturally has in it. The same thing happens in Nevada when it comes to swimming pools and minerals. Over the course of a years time a 6 foot deep pool will completely evaporate twice! This means that it has been refilled twice by the auto fill as well. This also means that by the end of the year your pool has 3 times as many minerals in it then it did when you first filled it up a year ago.
These excess minerals build up in the water and on the tile. It is these excess minerals you are feeling when you get out of a pool and your skin itches. Having this many minerals in your pool can also cause the water to feel heavy when you get in it.
