    Acid dispenser

    Looking for a way to automate the dispensing of acid in the pool. Seems I have to add HCL 2x a week to keep the pH correct.
    What are the best options?

    Hello from another fellow San Jose'ite.

    2x a week is rather frequent. Can you post your full test numbers? Which chlorination are you using?

    I have a liquidator.

    After the remodel the pool gets basic rather quickly. I expected to fade with time but it's been a year now.

    I mark the gallon acid jug into 6 increments with a sharpie and add 1/2 to 1 mark at a time... so between 645ml and 1300ml at a time, 2x a week.

    The pool is crystal clear year round after the remodel!
