    Question about muratic acid...

    I can not find the strength of my muriatic acid on my bottle. I got it at Lowes its the green label bottle. I also need to add cya and salt. Is it ok to add all or should I space it out. My cya is 30 trying to reach 70. My ph is 8.2.

    Re: Question about muratic acid...

    According to Lowe's web site (Shop Crown 1-Gallon Muriatic Acid at Lowes.com), the green bottle is half-strength. Specs listed on web site are 10° baume (15.725%).

    They also sell a blue-labeled bottle for the same price that is full-strength 20° Baume (31.45%). If you haven't opened the green bottle, I would exchange it for the blue-labeled bottle.

    The green bottle is marketed as an environmentally-friendly alternative. But at the end of the day, you will need the same effective strength of MA to reach your target pH level meaning you will be using twice the amount of product vs. the blue-labeled product. Really don't see the benefit of the green bottle except to the mfr's bottom line.

    A good test kit is an investment, not an expense.
