I purchased Muriatic Acid at Home Depot. I’ve read the entire label and can’t find the percentage of muriatic acid. So I looked up the MSDS sheet and it says 20%. I don’t have a 20% option on Pool Math. Options?

I'm getting clutzy here... ok... when I open my PoolMath App to the "Effects of Adding x chemical" I can dial it up to choose either 14.5 or 31.45% MA.

Do you see that? Is your MA by chance 20 Baume? Or 20%?

I think I'd just undershoot a bit and retest....creep up on your desired level if unsure.

Is it 20° or 20%?

20° is 20 Baum is 31.45%

If it's really 20%, then use the dropdown for 15.75% and multiply by 1.26984126984

I'd use 1.25. That's close enough.

MATH!!??? I can barely type this morning and you'd want someone to do....MATH?!?!

Again, I'd underdose if I was unsure. I'd go for the lesser strength on the app and use 3/4, then retest.

<grumble> too early for...math. ugh.

Well, first ya gotta make a signature! See on the left over there
<<----- "Settings" ?? Hit that and pick signature.

You can doll it up even with colors 😊 Why go dull I say!?

Then you've actually already "shared" your App logs here.. I see them when I hit your Avatar (that big "J" green thing) and it says "PoolMath Logs". You opted in when you set up your device.
