How to get Alkalinity down?

Hi,

I opened the pool on the weekend and the PH and Chlorine levels appear to be O.K.

What I did notice is that the Alkalinity is a bit high, what do i add to bring that level down?

Thanks,

J

Read the small book you have there with that 4in 1 test kit muractic acid is what you need to bring down the alkalinity.

Thanks for your response Ed.

Just wondering where is this available? Only at the pool store? or is it one of those items that goes under a different name at the "grocery store"?


Thanks agian

Home depot and lowes all have just the Muractic acid.
The pool stores all have it here also.
