We have an IG gunite ~ 12k gal pool. Resurfaced last year, had some splotching and calcium build up, so we just had it acid washed. We are refilling the pool now. The pool person set to add 7 gal of muriatic acid, let it sit for 24 hours, neutralize the acid, and then start the equipment and pool. This is to get rid of the calcium build up.
I wanted some advice on neutralizing the acid. Do I just use baking soda until my pH is in range? Or is it more complicated (do I need to monitor alkalinity as I do this)?
