It is safe to swim once your chlorine levels are around 5 ppm or after 24 hours. It is always best to test first! Muriatic acid can create a hot spot of acid in the water that could potentially burn or irritate your skin. It is best to wait 30 minutes after adding it to your pool.

Also Know, what causes metal stains in pool? Nothing bothers pool owners more than those unsightly blotches and discolor-ations on an otherwise unblemished pool surface. Staining is caused by organic matter such as algae, inorganic metals, or water trapped beneath plaster surfaces.

Also to know is, is citric acid the same as ascorbic acid?

Citric acid is an organic acid and a natural component of many fruits and fruit juices. It is not a vitamin or mineral and is not required in the diet. However, citric acid, not to be confused with ascorbic acid ( vitamin C ), is beneficial for people with kidney stones.

What is a sequestering agent for swimming pools?

Sequestering Agents are chemicals used to bind-up minerals and metals in solution, making it difficult for them to precipitate out of solution to cloud the water or stain the pool. They do not actually remove metals from the water, but keep them 'sequestered' or locked in solution with tight chemical bonds.

Can I fill my pool with my well?

If your well water is just OK (meaning it's a little cloudy and has a bit of an odor), you still may want to fill your pool with it. Certainly this water will take some extra start-up chemicals to get it right, but it'll still be more cost-effective than filling it with municipal water.

How do you remove rust stains from a fiberglass pool?

Rust is really iron in the water. To remove rust or iron in a fiberglass swimming pool, you just need to add a CuLator Ultra 4.0 into your pump basket and let it work all summer. If you are using well water to top off your pool, then add a maintenance dose of Metal Sequester to the water when you are topping off.

How do I remove stains from my Pebblecrete pool?

Start working from the walls towards the floor, and use a “turbo nozzle” and algaecide on any particularly bad stains. Then, use clean water to flush away any remaining detergent from your walls, and you're done! If there are still stains, allow the pool to dry for 24 hours and then repeat the process.
