Did I get screwed at the pool store?
Just refilled my 18000gal pool. So I took all the testing and added into the pool calc.
It told me to add...
1gal muriatic acid(approx.)
98 oz dry cyanuric acid or 243 oz of liquid cyanuric acid
255 oz of calcium chloride
I went to the local hardware store to get everything because I hate going to Leslie's. They always grill me on why I'm using liquid chlorine instead of the powders. I always just tell them I don't want them and please sell me some liquid chlorine. It got to the point that I am willing to spend 50 cents more at the hardware even though it is out of my way to go there. The only problem is the hardware store doesn't sell liquid cyanuric acid. So down to Leslie's I go. As soon as I walk in the store the "sales man" is on me like a used car sales man. I tell him I need some liquid cyanuric acid and he leads me over to it. I am looking over the bottle to see that it says it is cyanuric acid and the salesman says it is. I get distracted by the $36.99 price tag per gallon and the fact that I need two of them. I go ahead and buy them and proceed home to add to my pool. After I pour it in I start reading the label and find out it is not cyanuric acid. He out right "lied" to me.
Is this going to be a problem? Here is the actual product. Does this stuff work? I am waiting till tomorrow to retest the pool.
