Muriatic Acid is NOT Recommended for Pool Cleaning

The Pitfalls of Muriatic Acid for Pool Cleaning

In the quest for pristine pool surfaces, many resort to using muriatic acid, a powerful yet perilous chemical. Contrary to its popularity, muriatic acid poses significant threats to your pool’s well-being. This harsh chemical doesn’t discriminate – it burns everything it touches, from the pool surface to pipes, heat exchangers, and filters. Even more alarming, any residual soils left behind after this acid encounter are etched deeper into the pool wall, creating lasting damage.

The Illusion of Low pH Products

The paradox of using low pH products to “clean” pool scum lines defies both nature’s balance and the principles of effective cleaning. Pool scum lines, comprised of dirt, body oils, and organic materials like leaves, are inherently acidic. To tackle these soils effectively, one should employ an industrial-strength, alkaline chemical enriched with surfactants or emulsifiers.
