    muriatic acid, this brand safe to use?

    is this brand safe to use? anyone use this miriatic acid? they sell this at lowes, but isn't on lowes webpage.

    it says do not mix with chlorine, but i'm thinking they mean directly to chlorine.

    Looks like the right stuff. They mean don't pour it in a bucket with chlorine. Fireworks may occur!

    That's the stuff!

    The label even says 20° Baumé Hydrochloric Acid 31.5% By Weight.

    If that is in, say, paint department, or masonry, wander out to garden where the pool stuff is kept and check the price on the swimming pool brand. Then buy whichever one is cheaper.

    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!
