Hy I am a new member and I am about to start my pool. It is a small 5900 gallons quartz aggregate finish. I am thinking to make an acid start up but I have some concerns and questions:
What is the percent of the muriatic acid to use in the 3.5 gallons per 10000 gallon, 15.7% or 31.45%?? (2 gallons in mine)
What is the target ph in an acid wash?? (pool calculator reduces ph a lot if adding 256 onz(2 gallons) of 31.45% acid)
Can an acid wash deteriorate the quartz finish??
Can it have a negative effect on lights, stairs or other accessories??
Do you recommend a traditional start up instead??
Thank you very much I will appreciate if I have some help I am starting my pool saturday....
