Welcome to TFP.

15 minutes will do. 30 minutes is more then enough.

Note that continuous use of dry acid is not recommended for many pools. Read Acid - Dry Acid

Thankyou! For some reason I thought the wait time was longer in between sodium bisulfate compared to muriatic acid. Same timing, 30 mins, right? mind, I thought that because dry acid in powder form instructions said to circulate for at least 4 to 6 hours.

I have never heard if that.
