Post split from another thread by SeanB - I think we were starting to confuse what should have been a relatively simple issue.
Isn't it amazing to be able to separate fact from fantasy? Why wouldn't you be able to put Hydrochloric Acid in a pool, where it will release Chlorine ions into your water? Wouldn't 5 seconds of reflection tell you that it's probably the best acid to use in your pool BECAUSE it's hydrochloric acid?Originally Posted by mcftlf
It's like the pool store guy telling me "Oh, you don't want to use bleach--it raises your total dissolved solids!" What is that dissolved solid it's adding? Salt! Sodium Chloride (Hey! More chlorine ions!) And if you use bleach for 5 years in your pool you still won't reach the salt levels needed for .....your salt-water generator! So....fact vs fiction.
