hydrochloric acid for pool

Post by mr passout » July 1, 2019, 9:12 am

Morning Gents would anybody know where i could get smaller bottles/container of hydrochloric acid to lower my PH in my swimming pool.

There is a Chinese Builders Type Shop on Prajak Road ( Nong Khai ) That sells it in the Large Containers ( 25Litres ) But ALSO Sells it in Bottles of maybe A Half Litre for 30 Baht ( I Think ) Opposite the ESSO Petrol station which is being demolished......Just Here to HELP !!

the shop in dohome has hca 600 baht but also 25-30L ? package , you can store this long time though and in smaller content as of 1 L, it will be gone quickly ?...ordering online sometimes makes it more expensive than the local shops due to the high delivery cost (thaiparcels,kerry...), as info ... ;)

At DoHome on the swimming-pool external shop, they sell Ph- powder, I have always used this product to adjust the Ph of my swimming-pool
That is interresting to know there is an alternative, what is the benefit to use hydrochloric acid liquid rather standard Ph- ?

Yes interesting i never knew there was a powder form to reduce the PH level,
certainly would be a lot safer to handle than the Hydrochloric acid.
I only require a small amount and i don't really like the idea of storing large amounts of hydrochloric acid so the powder form is a good alternative i think.

Never really had to use acid over the 7or 8 years but we recently emptied the pool after regrouting and refilled causing thePH level to be a bit high.

Anyway thanks for all the comments guys

Happy Swimming Cheers :D

acid is way cheaper with same result ,only you must be careful handling ...
i used to buy acid at 300 baht/25L ,but the shop is gone and i did not yet find a good alternative,luckily for the moment i need to use more ph+ ,soda ash because ph too low ... ;)

Because I have a chlorinator with salt, ph is always increasing but slowly.

I have just bought 20L for 280 baht at Globalhouse.
Need to ask because it is very well hidden!
