Can you use pumice stone on pool tile?

While it's generally safe to use a pumice stick on tile, always test on an inconspicuous area of your tile first. You can find pumice sticks at pool stores, home improvement stores, or in the Speed Cleaning catalog. A scrubbing pad will work well to do a general scrub-down of the tile above and below the water line.
