    Pool Chemicals Storage What can be stored together?

    I am wanting to purchase one of those Lifetime plastic deck storage containers/rectangular box with a hinged lid (or RubberMaid) to store pool chemicals in.

    Just trying to tidy the place up a bit.

    My current chemical inventory consists of:
    D.E.
    Salt
    Muraitic Acid gallons
    PH+ (Which has never been used and probably never will)
    Clorox extra strength Liquid gallons from Sams
    Pool Conditioner (Cyanaric acid)
    PhosFree
    Salt Water Magic (I have no idea what this is but they said to put a few cap fulls in the skimmer each week)
    A plastic tub of individual packages of Dichlor shock (Have not needed to use this yet).
    A plastic tub of 3" Dichlor tablets (Which have not been used since the SWCG started)
    Granular chlorine shock individual package (calcium chloride) (PB used this but I have not put any in the pool since he left)

    What chemical containers can be stored in the same storage container/enclosure?

    You don't want to store muriatic acid close to any form of chlorine. If the two were ever to leak and mix it would create chlorine gas which is highly poisonous. Other than that, you can mix things up just about any way you want.

    Is there a temperature storage limit for Muraitic acid?
    Can it be stored in a closed storage shed that can get pretty hot down here in South Texas in the middle of the summer?

    As long as the bottles are properly closed muriatic acid can be stored over a wide temperature range without problems. Chlorine is much more sensitive to high temperatures.

    Note that both the chlorinating liquid and the acid have pressure-relief valves so if you have metal in the same box, it can corrode, especially with the acid. The box should ideally be well ventilated or if it is not, then don't have anything metal in it.
