Maintaining Aquatic Safety Surfaces: Tips for Longevity and Performance

Ensuring the longevity and optimal performance of aquatic safety surfaces is essential to uphold safety standards in waterparks, pools, and splash pads. In this article, we’ll provide practical maintenance tips to help you preserve the safety and functionality of your Aqua Tile surfaces. 

Understanding Aqua Tile 

Aqua Tile is a revolutionary safety surface designed specifically for wet environments. Its multi-directional textured tiles offer superior slip resistance and impact attenuation, making them ideal for high-traffic aquatic areas. 

Cleaning and Maintenance Tips: 

  • Regular Cleaning Routine: 
    • Establish a regular cleaning schedule to prevent dirt, debris, and algae buildup on the surface. 
    • Use a mild detergent and water solution to clean the tiles thoroughly. 
    • Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as they can damage the surface. 
  • Removal of Stains and Spills: 
    • Promptly clean up spills, such as sunscreen, food, or beverages, to prevent staining. 
    • For stubborn stains, use a soft-bristled brush along with the detergent solution to gently scrub the affected area. 
  • Preventing Algae Growth: 
    • Algae growth can make surfaces slippery and unsafe. Use an algaecide treatment regularly to inhibit algae growth. 
    • Ensure proper drainage to prevent standing water, which can contribute to algae growth. 
  • Handling Chemical Exposure: 
    • Aqua Tile is engineered to withstand exposure to chemical shock without compromising its slip resistance or color integrity. 
    • However, it’s essential to rinse the surface thoroughly after exposure to chlorinated water or other chemicals to maintain its longevity. 
  • UV Protection: 
    • Although Aqua Tile is UV stabilized, prolonged exposure to intense UV rays can affect its color integrity over time. 
    • Use a UV protectant sealant periodically to enhance UV resistance and prolong the life of the surface. 
  • Regular Inspections: 
    • Conduct regular inspections of the Aqua Tile surface to identify any signs of wear, damage, or potential hazards. 
    • Repair any damaged tiles promptly to prevent further deterioration and maintain safety standards. 


By following these simple maintenance tips, you can ensure that your Aqua Tile safety surface remains in optimal condition, providing a safe and enjoyable aquatic environment for years to come. Regular cleaning, proper handling of chemicals, and routine inspections are key to preserving the longevity and performance of your aquatic safety surfaces. 

Safety and fun. All in one.
