    what to do with leftover muriatic acid & H2O mixture

    I'm cleaning my SWG cell and don't need any muriatic acid added to the pool. How can I safely dispose of the water and muriatic acid mixture? thanks.

    I assume you're talking about leftover unused stuff.

    What's the ratio of acid and water?
    What was the concentration of the undiluted acid?

    Diluting it more and pouring it out is fine.

    How much are we talking about? A few cups? If you don't have a weed patch top pour it on, just dilute it a bit more in a plastic bucket and flush it. Unless you're on a septic tank. or if you've just used drain cleaner.

    Thank you so much for replying and helping me.
    I don't have a cell holder for cleaning (but after this I plan to buy one!) so I used a household bucket and it was fairly full. I did a 4:1 ratio water to acid.
