    Quick question

    I just added muriactic acid to lower my Ph from 8.2 to 7.5, it has been about 1 and a half hour since that.
    Is it safe to shock rigth now?

    I have to have the pool ready because i have kids coming to swim, i know i have to wait four hours after i shock which is about the time they'll arrive.

    Yes you can go ahead and add the chlorine. An hour would be fine.

    You can hasten the whole process and mix the acid and bleach better by brushing. Once around the pool doing the walls, stop and cool off with your beverage of choice, then go do the bottom, have another drink, then go test FC again. Repeat. Just don't enjoy your beverage so much you get tipsy and fall in.

    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!
