    sulfuric or muiratic acid for PH in SWG pool

    I've used sulfuric acid for PH control for years (no fumes up my nose). I have just installed a Circupool RJ +30 SWG on my 15.2K Gallon plaster pool.
    Is it alright to continue to use the sulfuric acid for PH control in my pool? Can I use a sulfuric solution to clean my cell when it needs it?.
    Thanks, ED

    I would recommend the muriatic acid. Sulfuric acid when used often can cause a build up of sulphates in the water which can affect plaster. Muriatic acid does not leave any thing behind and is best.

    Re: sulfuric or muiratic acid for PH in SWG pool

    I've used 38% sulfuric acid for at least 15 years with no adverse effects on the plaster (resurfaced two years ago after twenty years). What I meant to ask is will the the sulfuric acid have any adverse effects on my new SWG and can I use sulfuric acid solution to clean the cell when needed?

    I think I'd ask the SWG manufacturer that question.
