    Lowering PH, adding MA

    First off, great site! I've been reading lots of info in the school section of the past couple of months trying to educate myself. I just received my Taylor kit last night and will be performing the test later.

    I've read that you shouldnt add more than a quart of acid in 24 hrs to reduce risk of damaging the pool. My pool is 45k gallons, would this principal still apply due to the scale?

    The reason I ask, it's taking 2 wks to lower the PH and I'm still not there.

    You can add as much as the pool calculator says you need all at once.

    I'm not sure where that limit came from but it's not accurate.
