    Adding acid and pump

    How long should I let the pump run after adding muratic acid? I've been adding acid at least one hour before the pump shuts off if not more but thought I'd make sure one hour is long enough. Thanks!

    One hour is plenty, likely 30 minutes is actually enough as well.
