    Home Depot Muriatic Acid

    Did I just make a mistake - instead of the Swimming Pool Muriatic Acid (14.5%) I got the other stuff, 31.45% - poured some in the pool - one box says Balance on it? https://www.homedepot.com/p/HDX-2-x-1-Gal-Swimming-Pool-Muriatic-Acid-2-Pack-10014HDX/202254527

    First test results. Help with raising CYA

    I would have drained it too...5 years of poo in that pool, to much muck, but in the end you’ll get there.

    First test results. Help with raising CYA

    You could also use the pool vac, and just clean the filters often, don’t have wait for the 25% pressure increase.

    Featured New pool build in Allen TX

    Pool coping requires different knowledge than putting stone on stairs...there really is no “pattern” with stone, other than what you think it should be. I think it will look good when it’s done, almost like adding an accent instead of making everything match and blend to blah, but in the end...
