I have built-up scale (hard, white alkali) on my pool tile. What is the best and easiest way to take it off. Thank you.

A dilute solution of muriatic acid and a stiff brush.

Have no fear Beekay,
Dale nailed another one right on the head. Ceramic tile is virtually impervious to muriatic acid and you need only dilute it down so as not to crumble your grout joints and {I'm assuming} marcite or something close. I have acid washed literally 100s of pools for this and other reasons and nothing works {to my knowlege} as well. Muriatic acid is added regularly to the pool water anyway, and never caused me any harm. {the key word would be "dilluted"}
