    Muratic Acid - does it go "bad" ??

    The previous 2-pack of MA that I bought at Leslie's Pools was clear ... Last week I had to get another 2-pack. When I pulled them out of the box, they were sort of Yellow looking ... Is that normal? or did they go bad in-store, if that is possible. Should I return them or is it OK to use them? Thanks

    Pretty sure there were some recent posts about the acid not really able to go bad.

    Here it is:

    I think I have noticed some different colors previously as well ...

    Why is it I keep hearing this everytime I see this thread...

    I also imagine a couple of bottles of MA hanging out and smoking on the street corner... but I've got an overactive imagination.

    I'm glad you liked it - happy to bring a smile to someone down with the flu! I'm not 100% certain but I think the lyrics displayed have errors - which adds to the hilarity for me.

    Thanks man, I appreciate it. I'm always up for a good laugh, unless I'm on my knees in pain or something similar.
    BTW, starting to feel quite a bit better, mostly just out of energy now.
    I'll be jiggered if I'm missing Sunday morning service and hangin' out /w the boys though.

    Yeah I saw those errors, HAHA!
    *Look at me, I'm so bad I mess up the lyrics. LOL

    You're too funny, keep it rockin' man!
