I just got my pool looking good again. From all the rain that we had,
and no swimming, the pool turned a bright shade of green. It almost looked
like a pond instead of a pool. I put two packages of shock in it, and some
PH, and it's just about cleared up. Problem is, when I tested the water,
now it might have too much PH, the test kit said to add acid. My question
is, what household product can I use to put more acid in the water. I
remember someone posted a sight one time, that listed household products
could be used instead of buying those expensive ones from the pool stores.
Can anyone help me?
If you have a plaster in ground pool, it really would be best to find a Self
Chem in your area, or take a sample of your water to a pool supply place to have
it tested. Proper pH in plaster pools is really important, but more, hardness
of water. We test our pool all the time for pH levels, water hardness, chlorine
availability (which should never drop lower than 3 ppm) etc.
correct, dont use vinegar, it s organic and bacteria break it down. but if you
have fish in the pond, why do you care what the pH is? Ingrid

You might try muriatic acid (hydrochloric acid) from a hardware store like
Home Depot but be careful, its strong stuff.
I'm not sure what pool store supplies but look at label, it may be the same
