Any suggestions on who I can use to get the white scale off the pool tiles on side of pool?

You will pay a lot of money to have someone do this. Just a heads up. I'd contact one of the larger companies in town and have them give you a quote. Pool guy, maybe Mobley.

Is it from salt water? I'm thinking of building a salt water pool one day...

It is not a consequence of salt water at all.

It is related to pH being too high (alkaline).

Our water comes out of the tap at a very high pH and so maintaining the chemistry is the only reliable way to minimize this build up.

We bought a pumice stone off Amazon and did ours last summer. It definitely doesn't last forever (needs to be redone already) but it's not difficult and a LOT less expensive than hiring someone to do it for you. We also bought some sort of chemical cleanser for this at The Pool Guy, but we haven't tried it since using the pumice stone didn't introduce any more chemicals to the pool and we didn't want to mess up our chemistry.
