Bead-Blasting / Tile Cleaning Services

Glass Bead Blasting Services

Welcome to Purdy Pools, where we tackle the unique pool maintenance challenges faced by residents of Arizona. Our bead blasting service is tailored to address the prevalent issues of scale buildup and staining that occur due to the local water conditions and climate. This specialized cleaning process not only enhances the beauty of your pool but also extends its lifespan by preventing damage that harsh deposits can cause.

Glass Bead Blasting Process

Glass bead blasting is an innovative cleaning technique that utilizes fine, spherical glass beads to meticulously clean pool tiles and walls. This method is highly effective at removing stubborn deposits without causing any damage to the surface.


The bead blasting process at Purdy Pools involves:

  • Inspection: Our experts begin by assessing the pool to identify areas with significant buildup.
  • Application: Using state-of-the-art equipment, glass beads are applied at a controlled low air pressure, ensuring precise cleaning.
  • Technique: We focus on areas affected by calcium and other mineral deposits, employing specialized techniques to remove them completely.

Why Arizona Residents Choose Bead Blasting

  • Cleaning Capabilities: This method efficiently eliminates calcium, algae, and other common pool contaminants.
  • Outcome: After treatment, your pool tiles will not only be free of buildup but will also regain their original brilliance and appeal.

Advantages of Glass Beads

Physical and Chemical Properties

Our glass beads are crafted from high-quality, lead-free soda lime-type glass. These beads are spherical in shape, which allows for a gentle yet thorough cleaning effect that does not scratch or damage the pool surfaces.

Environmental and Safety Benefits

Glass bead blasting is a preferred method for eco-conscious pool owners. The beads are recyclable and chemically inert, ensuring they do not introduce any harmful substances into your pool or the environment. Additionally, this method significantly reduces the need for harsh chemical cleaners, promoting a safer environment around your pool.

Glass Beads vs. Other Cleaning Methods

Comparison with Chemical Methods

Chemical treatments can be effective but often pose risks to both the environment and the pool’s structural integrity over time. Glass bead blasting, in contrast, avoids these risks by using physical cleaning methods that are both gentle and effective, reducing the need for potentially damaging chemical interventions.

Comparison with Physical Abrasive

Traditional physical abrasives like pumice stones or high-pressure water can be too harsh, risking damage to delicate pool surfaces such as PebbleTec. Glass bead blasting provides a superior alternative, offering effective cleaning without the abrasive damage associated with these methods.

Sandblasting Services

For scenarios where a more gentle treatment is necessary, Purdy Pools offers sandblasting services. This method is ideal for cleaning softer surfaces such as river rock, waterfalls or water features. This method protects the integrity of the softer surfaces. Sandblasting is used selectively by our trained professionals, based on their expert observations during on-site evaluations. This ensures that each cleaning job is tailored precisely to the needs of the pool without risking damage to the pool’s structure or aesthetic. Our sandblasting service complements our glass bead blasting by providing a comprehensive range of cleaning options suited to all types of pool conditions and customer needs.

Purdy Pools is dedicated to providing exceptional bead blasting services to the residents of Arizona, and surrounding areas. Our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction ensures that every pool we service meets the highest standards of cleanliness and maintenance.

Maintenance Recommendations From Our Professionals

Professional Services vs. DIY

While DIY pool maintenance can be tempting, the precision and expertise required for glass bead blasting make it a task best left to professionals. At Purdy Pools, our trained experts ensure that the job is done safely and effectively, avoiding the potential pitfalls of improper handling that can lead to uneven cleaning or damage.

Post-Cleaning Treatment

We recommend against sealing pool tiles after bead blasting. Sealing can trap moisture and chemicals, leading to faster degradation and discoloration over time. Instead, we suggest regular maintenance checks to keep your pool in pristine condition without the need for sealing.
