Dry acid is a granular form of acid that can be used to lower the pH levels in pools and hot tub water. It also helps maintain a balanced water quality.
Leslie's Dry Acid can help lower the pH levels in your water, while maintaining its total alkalinity. This is a great way to keep your water balanced and clean.
- Dry acid or Sodium bisulfate in granular form
- Safer than muriatic acid
- Quickly dissolves
- Keeps pH levels balanced
- Prevents excess calcium buildup
How to lower Total Alkalinity and pH
To determine the total alkalinity of your pool water, first test it using a test kit. The ideal range for total alkalinity is based on the type of sanitizer used. For instance, you should use a 100-120 ppm solution for trichlor, dichlor, and bromine tablets.
The ideal pH range for swimming pools is between 7.4 and 7.6. Setting the correct total alkalinity and pH levels will help maintain the effectiveness of your bromine or chlorine sanitizer.
If the total alkalinity of your pool water is over 140 ppm, then it needs to be lowered. Using 2 pounds of Leslie's Dry Acid will help decrease its total alkalinity by about 10 ppm.
