|Please read AQUATIP 1 first. Adding acid to a pool is a hot topic for me. I discovered about a month after my new salt system was turned on just how critical adding acid is for a salt system to do its job. I also discovered you have to add more acid than you thought you would to a swimming pool. The top picture to the left shows acid being poured into the pool away from your body. This is to avoid acid splashing on your skin. |
It is best to keep all of your skin and eyes covered when pouring acid. I know, I had a drop splash in my eye and learned the hard way to be careful. I washed my eye out quickly so nothing lasting, however it was a bit scary. Another idea is a dry powder pH adjuster. With this method, simply pour the powder into a bucket, add water and pour in the pool. This seems much safer.
