Thanks Chris. I used dry acid because it is just easier to handle, that is the only reason.
That was my reason for dry acid also..Had amazon deliver it :)
Homedepot has it in the paint section but was $10 a gallon..But I went online and did the pickup at store and found 2 gallons of pool acid for $12.
I run my pump 24x7 because I like the water fall sound :) I have a VS speed pump and run it at 4psi which keeps the fall stream steady

I will do. Thanks for the suggestion. How many hours do you suggest to run the pump a day? I need to set it to 2750 RPM for the automatic pool cleaner to work properly.

Great -- put that in your signature.

Dry acid is Sodium Bisulfate. The Sulfate stays in the pool water. Once it builds to a certain concentration, it starts to destroy your Quartz finish. I would stop using it now. And drain off water at every convenience to lower the level in the pool water.
Thanks a lot for the suggestion. I had no idea. Great I asked. I will update my signature soon.

I think it’s a personal preference. It’s not required but with VS pumps are so energy efficient it’s worth it to me
