Muriatic (hydrochloric) acid is great, and will clean anything that it won't dissolve. But it's VERY DANGEROUS. Even when diluted, it can burn the skin and eyes, and the vapors will choke you. For general cleaning, try Purple Power. It's a lot safer, but still strong enough to take paint offif ou lave it on too long.

You don't have to go as far as muratic acid probably. I use Clorox and water in my back pack sprayer. Spray on, wait about 10 minutes and then hose off with plain water.

Mildew remover from Walmart works wonders on plastic strap furniture.

If it all plastic just drop into the pool then shock the water..should be clean over night..

Never put Muriatic into a Well; for any reason. If you want to disinfect your Well; use Chlorine or regular laundry unscented Bleach.

Uninstall the generator from your pump system. Submerge in a water and muriatic acid solution (ratio 5:1) For ten-fifteen minutes. Rinse the inner cell thoroughly and repeat if necessary.

The ratio of 18 to 12 (18:12) = 3:2 = 1.5 people per chair
