Thread: Klean Strip Green Muriatic Acid

    Klean Strip Green Muriatic Acid

    I just wanted to verify that the Klean Strip Green Muriatic Acid sold by Home Depot is 31.45% concentration. Does anyone know?

    It is not the same as the MA I get at home depot. And in it's description it says something about not being like "regular" MA. This is the MA I get. http://www.homedepot.com/buy/smart/case ... 97393.html

    They list it as <25% muriatic acid. Presumably the acid concentration varies somewhat from batch to batch. Assuming it is 22% is probably close enough.

    I checked that link and it is not sold at any Home Depot in a 50 mile radius for me. Where else can I buy the 31% concentration of Muriatic Acid?

    Re: Klean Strip Green Muriatic Acid

    Yeah that's the same one Home Depot sells but apparently its not 31% concentration.

    Re: Klean Strip Green Muriatic Acid

    When I follow the Lowes link, I see Crown Gallon Muriatic Acid, which is 31.45%, and Kem-Tec which is 29%.

    Re: Klean Strip Green Muriatic Acid

    Neither of those are available in my area. Any other suggestions?

    An ACE hardware store would probably have it.

    Re: Klean Strip Green Muriatic Acid

    Tried that also but no luck. Probably has to do with New York state. Any other ideas or should I try buying online?

    Local pool store or someplace that sells tile supplies?

    Not here. Here is a pH decrease powder, not sure how to do the math though.

    Re: Klean Strip Green Muriatic Acid

    That's a dry acid. Pool calculator tells you how much to add to drop your pH knowing your current level.

    Paint stores often carry muriatic acid. It is used to clean concrete before painting.

    Crown Muratic Acid Next???

    Sorry to bring this old thread back!!! I could not get my normal MA from Tractor Supply. So I sent my kid to Lowes and he came back with Crown Muratic Acid Next.... Don't care about strength... Simply want to make sure before I open that it is SAFE to use in the pool... As in is it only Muratic acid? The lowes spec information says not safe for Salt pools which is why I ask.....
