What is Glass Bead Blasting?

Glass bead blasting or pool bead blasting is a shot blast process which removes calcium deposits by applying fine glass beads to a low air pressure stream which gently removes deposits.  When done properly calcium can be removed without damaging the surface. It is used to clean deposits from Pebble Tec, stone and many other surfaces. It also removes embedded algae and brightens tile grout. Glass bead blasting is a safe and effective technique to completely remove the calcium and scale deposits from your back yard attraction.  The results are far better than using harsh acids and chemicals which take more time and money to remove the scale.

What Are Glass Beads

Glass beads are manufactured from lead-free, soda lime-type glass, containing no free silica that is made into preformed ball shapes. Glass beads produce a much smoother and brighter finish than angular medias. Glass bead blasting produces a clean, bright, satin finish, without damage to Pebble Tec or stone. Glass beads are easy to vacuum and can be recycled approximately 30 times. Chemically inert and environmentally friendly, glass bead blasting is a great method for removing calcium from Pebble Tec and stone.

The Best Choice to Clean Pebble Tec

There are many types of media used to remove calcium deposits from a pool’s waterline. Our experience has taught us that glass beads are best when it comes to blasting Pebble Tec. Not only will glass bead blasting take a fraction of the amount of time that a pumice stone or brush will, it also does a better and more complete cleaning than any other media available for blasting Pebble Tec.
