brick patio

I have a loose laid, old used brick patio, laid over about one - two inches of sand. A white layer of scale has formed on the surface causing my red used brick to look like they are white washed. What causes this and what's the best way to remove the white scale and treat the bricks to prevent it from occurring again?
