    Muriatic Acid concentration

    Hi all,

    I have a question regarding muriatic acid concentration. I can only get the product with 10% concentration, and I would like to add my borax.

    Since the Borate section in the Pool Math calls for 31.45% (20 Baumé) concentration of MA, I wonder if I would then need 3x the amount of MA since I can olny get 10% concentration (no degree baumé listed on the 1-gallon jugs.. only %).

    Thanks in advance for the advise !!!

    Yes.

    Slightly more than 3X the acid .... 3.145X to be precise.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!
