How soon after putting muriatic acid in your swimming pool can you swim?
Our pool guy comes in the early afternoon/late morning every Monday. I check the pool PH around 5 pm, and the readings are all right on.....so I would say five hours? That's our pool, though, I would get one of the PH testing kits you can get at pretty much any pool supply store.Hope this helps!Mrs. Gregory
Muriatic acid is most commonly used in swimming pools to lower the swimming pools PH and to lower the pools alkalinity. You should use caution when working with muriatic acid. Not only can it stain your clothes, pool deck, etc, but if you inhale too much it can cause tissue damage. Always consult a professional when working with chemicals that you are not completely knowledgeable about, some swimming pool chemicals when mixed wrong can have…
Muriatic acid is toxic. You need to wait until all the water in your pool turns over and that depends on how many gallons your pool has and how strong your pump is. You are safe by waiting at least 4 to 6 hours with the pump running. And remember: Only add a quarter of a gallon at a time and put it in the deep end of pool.
That Acid is called Muriatic Acid. You put it in your swimming pool to lower the PH of the water. At lower PH Levels, the chlorine you use to sanitize the pool is more active, as a disinfectant. You MUST be careful not to put too MUCH Muriatic Acid in your pool! PH that is too low will create potentially deadly fumes, so test your water. Low pH is corrosive to plaster and metal pool…
Can you add muriatic acid to a pebble tec pool to maintain proper pH level or will it harm the pool?
Yes, you can use muriatic acid to control pH in a pebbletec pool. Added correctly (spread around the pool with circulation equipment operating) muriatic acid will not harm the pool. As a matter of fact muriatic or hydrachloric is the best thing to use but I suggest you dilute it 4 parts water 1 part acid for safety to you and your equipment
Muriatic acid, also known as hydrochloric acid, can be found in many common items, like household cleaners and swimming pool pH control products. The pH level of muriatic acid itself can fluctuate depending on its concentration and on the molarity of HCl in the aqueous solution, ranging anywhere from 0 to 7 on the pH scale.
Muriatic acid will lower the Ph of the water in a swimming pool which may be helpful if the pH is too low, However the best way to kill algae in the pool is to try shocking it first and failing that get algaecide. as a last resort use a clarifier making sure you follow the instructions on the container.
