    Would this work for Muriatic Acid

    I found this at Walmart. Would it work for Muriatic Acid? Green Envy 610G1 Masonry Cleaner, 1 Gal.

    Depends on the ingredients ... also check the strength as it could be weak.

    Looks like 20% acid plus urea and citric acid.
    Stick with regular muriatic acid.

    According to the MSDS it has citric acid in it.

    It won't work in the place of muriatic acid for pools.

    Well, the Lowes in W Marietta shows it in stock.

    Your order can be available for pickup in Lowe's Of W Marietta, GA today.
    Shop Jasco Muriatic Acid at Lowes.com

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Do you have a pool store nearby? Pretty much all pool stores carry muriatic acid. You might have to ask at the counter if it's not out with the general stock.

    Home Depot? Lowes? Ace Hardware? They should all have it as it is used by contractors for concrete etching.

    It also looks like the Home Depot in Hiram has 98 2-gal cases of 31% in stock. It says it's outside in the garden center but they will usually store it away from the other pool products due to compatibility.

    Re: Would this work for Muriatic Acid

    Thanks folks! I didn't even think Lowes!! Between work and home I don't have one. Did end up at a local ACE and they had a small bottle. But since I only need 10 oz I picked it up. Will check out Lowes on Monday when I get paid.
