Answer: 
Muriatic acid will lower the ph of your water. Ph is a measure of alkalinity or acidity of the water. Pure water has a ph of 7.0. For safety and comfort reasons, pool water should be between 7.2 and 7.8 with 7.5 considered ideal.
First, measure the ph of your pool, use a good test kit or take it to a pool supply store for testing. A pool test kit will tell you how much acid to add if you need it. Read More

First, measure the ph of your pool, use a good test kit or take it to a pool supply store for testing. A pool test kit will tell you how much acid to add if you need it. Likewise, the people at the pool store will tell you how much acid (if any) you need to add.
Be careful with acid, never add it directly to your pool. Mix up to two cups of acid in one or two gallons of water then add the water/acid mix to the pool at the shallow end. Rinse both the measuring cup and the bucket with acid/water before storing. Read Less

Answer: 
Best to use a test kit to measure acid demand. Most all test kits include dosage instructions based on acid demand results. Usually, dosing is done over a period of time until the desired PH reading is achieved.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Weak Acid. Don't buy The acid is weak. Requires large volume to lower PH. I have used acid that was so strong that you cant hold it near your nose. Kemtek Muriatic acid, I can sniff it without smelling the odor. Manufacturer has watered down product for profit? August 28, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Acid % is up In the past, the active ingredient was only 14%. Checked today, and it is now 31%. June 10, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Value This product is priced approximately the same as muriatic acid sold in pool supply stores, but the concentration is half. Because the price is approximately the same, and because the concentration is half, the price of this product is double compared to that purchased from pool supply stores. November 17, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Very weak acid (14.5%) I thought I would save money buying for the pool from Home Depot instead of the pool store. WRONG! Roughly the same cost as pool store but it's HALF the strength. Home Depot: $9.98 for 2 gal. at 14.5% acid. Leslies Pool: $9.99 for 2 gal. at 31% acid. ... same price, half the strength from Home Depot. July 16, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Will NOT WORK FOR METAL CLEANING!! Save your money if you were planning to get REAL Muriatic acid... this stuff is about as strong as vinegar! I bought the two-gallon pack and plan to return it to HD, since it WILL NOT "etch" or clean steel or metal parts, which is what Muriatic acid was originally sold for. This junk does not even "fume" or produce a vapor when poured out into a basin to etch metals. I have purchased Hydrochloric (Muriatic) acid from HD before that was the strength that it should be, but not this stuff. Pure Junk! September 24, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Does the job of lowering pool pH Does the job! It lowers your pool pH. If you need to add it at the same time as liquid chlorine, add this FIRST then wait several hours. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by does what it is designed to do Using to acid wash pool, works great, the lime buildup is so bad it takes this acid to remove the scale buildup. this is a strong acid, it will fume. Use with care. I wouldn't want to work with a stronger acid, this stuff is corrosive enough. "It will bleach the concrete around the pool if spilled, so use with care. April 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ready to use for pool ph control Ph and chlorine levels are the two main things pool owners need to monitor and maintain for a healthy pool. The ph levels on mine want to run high and this is what I use to bring it back down. Don't dump a whole bottle in as it does not take much to drive your ph down unless you have a huge commercial sized pool. Be careful with this stuff. Read the warning labels, protect your eyes, and don't breath the fumes. Avoid spashing it on your body and pool deck. December 8, 2012
