Asked by: Alias
The ER100 is often applied with a plastic hand pump sprayer prior to scrubbing. On a floor, it's possible to pour ER100 on the surface. Make sure you dilute the product prior to use. Wear eye protection and have a bucket of water mixed with household ammonia to neutralize the cleaner after scrubbing. A five gallon bucket of water(actually about 4 gallons of water in the bucket) mixed with one quart of ammonia will neutralize the acid in the cleaner.

Will this harm PVC drain pipes, channel drains, glue that connects PVC drain pipes together, etc.?
Asked by: surfman
I stored some diluted (1:4) concentrate in one of those thin, plastic paint quart containers you buy @ HD with the corresponding lid. The efflorescence remover had eaten a small hole in the bottom of the container after 4 days so I would assume that any standing liquid remaining in a PVC drain pipe or channel would have similar effects over an extended period of time. The Foundation Armor efflorescence remover does respond well to neutralization with baking soda so a good flushing of your PVC drains with a neutralizing solution of baking soda should prevent any future PVC damage. Even properly neutralized muriatic acid is safe to pour down a drain and the Foundation armor product is not as caustic because it does not contain muriatic acid.

Is it safe to use on integral colored stamped concrete to remove efflorescence? how do I neutralize it before applying penetrating concrete sealer? is diluted muriatic acid an alternative to remove efflorescence from concrete?
Asked by: surfman
I would use the Foundation Armor product before even thinking about using muriatic acid on colored, stamped concrete. Although colored, stamped concrete has color integrated in the concrete itself, muriatic acid will etch the surface of your concrete. If you are using a deep penetrating sealer that does not change the color or appearance of your colored concrete, then the etching from the muriatic acid should not be noticeable. Applying a clear, "Wet look" sealer after using muriatic acid might not result in the finish you want. The Foundation Armor product contains no muriatic acid and applied at the 1:4 recommended dilution rate is somewhat benign. With all the variables related to direct UV exposure, the underlying soil alkaline content, watering applications, salinity and your local weather conditions, test the efflorescence remover on an inconspicuous place at the recommended dilution rate of 1:4. If that doesn't work, try increasing the dilution rate to 2:4 (50%)- which ultimately worked for me. As a last resort only, test muriatic acid 1:10) You neutralize the Foundation Armor product the same way you neutralize muriatic acid; either by using less expensive ammonia (1 cup/gallon) or baking soda (either directly to the surface, wetting and scrubbing and then completely washing off or mixing with water- I used 2 cups/gallon- scrubbing and washing off completely). Let your concrete dry out completely over several days (Bone dry) and then apply your sealer.
