    Default Lowering alkalinity in a Perma salt system pool

    Can I use muriatic acid for high alkalinity with the permasalt system?

    Muriatic acid is compatible with ALL pool treatment systems, even bogus ones like Permasalt.

    BUT . . . simply adding acid will NOT lower alkalinity. You need to read the articles linked in this FAQ: http://www.poolforum.com/pf2/showthread.php/191

    You should also read the Permasalt info here: http://www.poolforum.com/pf2/showthread.php/29112

    Good luck!

    Upgraded membership and moved thread to the Ionizer (& Permasalt) section. You may need to log out and back in to see everything.

    PS.You can search use Google to search multiple pool sites, using Google's 'advanced search operators" to limit your search to specific sites. This page of mine will create the search links for you. Google knows my site -- and all the others -- much better than those sites internal search functions! And, if you need to post pictures -- of your pool, filter, pump, piping, what-not -- there are instructions on this page

    Please note: the Super Search page does NOT search directly; it only CREATES special Google links, that enable a FOCUSED Google search!
