    "Green" low odor Muriatic Acid

    I bought this stuff at Home Depot - all they carry at ours:

    Kleen Strip Green Muriatic Acid.

    There is no indication of strength on the bottle or the sds other than "<30%"

    Many of the Q&A answers say 20% (and go on to reference TFP and pool math - awesome!).

    Is there any way to find out for sure, and if 20% is the number I'll give ya' a nickel if you add that to pool math! (That's a lie - but there is a "thanks" in it for you!)

    It is 15.7%, half strength, half of 31.45%, and it is already in a PoolMath. I'll take the nickel. I buy my MA at Lowes and it is "in the back" on a overstock aisle. They also have it in the paint department maybe find an old guy and ask if they carry the full strength somewhere.

    Hey, that works for me - thanks!

    Next time you're in Yakima swing by and I'll get you that nickel...

    I saw it a lowes after, but this is already bought so I'll use it up.

    I was enjoying the steady, slightly falling ph while I was on the trichlor tabs to get my cya up (new pool). It hit 40 this weekend, so it looks like I'm starting the tfp method. It came up fast - thought I would be able to hold out until closing.

    If your Lowes is link mine, the blue label full strength is going away. I talked to my store manager and he said that it was part of Lowes effort to carry a higher percentage of "green" products and the full strength stuff is no longer in his ordering catalog.

    Lol "green"...
    Half the product = twice as many plastic bottles, twice the volume to ship, and coincidentally twice the relative price.
