Anyone recommend a product for cleaning white edging tiles around a swimming pool that have got a bit dirty?

I have heard that white vinegar would do the trick but I am hesitant to use it before seeking advice.

Hi Chegs we put all ours into the pool for a little while and then got in and cleaned them with a brush. They came up lovely and white and it was an easy way of doing it.

Jet washing is the quickest way to clean them.

jet wash "could" remove the concrete fillings inbetween the tiles so be carefull when useing the jetwash as you dont know how good the tile filling is.. happy cleanings..

Hi chewin,





Are you talking about white tiles, or white plastic grills?

White tiles my precious. I dont have any plastic grills.

I will try the power washer option first. Seems the most sensible.



Chegwin, not chewin.

I would try using Tuz Ruhu before using a power washer. I think your grout might suffer otherwise.

This is probably limesale and I would check your Total Alkalinity first otherwise the problem will only return.

I went with the power washer option and they have come up almost like new. Careful 'round the grouting and didnít loose any. Then waited for them to dry and sealed them with a water based silicon sealer. The tiles are non slip so the sealer when dry does not slick them up.

All in all a good job, just like new.
