Muriatic acid is a special type of acid that is used for a variety of purposes, including balancing the pH levels in a backyard swimming pool. It is a slightly diluted and less pure version of hydrochloric acid and is highly corrosive.

Why Add Muriatic Acid to Your Pool?

Muriatic acid is an essential chemical for maintaining the right water chemistry in your swimming pool. High pH levels can cause scale buildup, which can make it difficult to keep your pool clean. Adding muriatic acid to your pool water can help reduce pH levels and prevent the formation of scale.

Using Muriatic Acid Safely

When adding muriatic acid to your pool, it is essential to use it safely. Wear gloves, goggles, and protective clothing to avoid skin and eye irritation. Also, make sure to add the acid to the water and not the other way around to avoid splashing. Finally, remember to store the acid in a cool and dry place out of reach of children and pets.
