Etching appears as pits in calcium-enriched surfaces like concrete and tile grout. Etching occurs when proper water balance has not been maintained over a period of time. Low pH, low total alkalinity, low calcium hardness, or any combination of these can literally eat away concrete. To prevent this, maintain proper water balance. Etching can only be repaired by resurfacing.
