So I finally ran into a high ph issue and bought some HTH ph minus (sodium bisulfate) I read around the internet first before adding it and found everyone recommended dissolving the dry acid in a gallon bucket of pool water first. Then slowly pouring the diluted mixture into the pool around the return with the pump on.
However after i did this i happened to look at the bottle of hth ph minus and it has a huge STOP sign logo that says below "do not mix with water prior to putting in the pool" I went and found a video that hth has on the web and they want you to just lob a pile of the dry acid into your pool ?? heres the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2B7dOxUj_Ng Its seems like that method would be awfully hard on my vinyl liner !!
Anyways my question is, did I screw up or should i ignore the warning from hth and continue dissolving the product first ???
